Types of Foreclosure in Chicago IL


There are two main types of foreclosure in Chicago, real estate foreclosure and commercial foreclosure. Read this article to understand the difference between each topic.

Real Estate Foreclosure in Chicago

A foreclosure is a process that terminates the rights of the homeowner, covered by a mortgage, and the estate then becomes the property of the lending institution.

The numbers of foreclosures in America are growing daily. There are more than one hundred and twenty million homes in the United States and it is estimated that about 4% or about 4.8 million of them are facing foreclosure.

The process of foreclosure begins when a homeowner struggles to make their payments. This can be due to unemployment, medical challenges, death, divorce or even the terms of the loan. This then typically leads to the property being seized and sold.

When the homeowner has missed about 3-6 months of payments, the lender will order a trustee to record a Notice of Default (NOD) at the country recorders office. This puts the borrower on notice that they are facing foreclosure.

If the loan or default isn’t brought to current standings within three months, a date of the foreclosure sale is then established.
