Are You Worried About How Much Notice You Will Receive Before A Sheriff Sale In New Jersey?
If your home is in foreclosure and you’re getting close to the end of the process, you may be worried about being served with a notice of a Sheriff Sale. Many people wonder: how much notice will be given prior to the sale?
Notice in the Newspaper.
The Sheriff in New Jersey is required to provide notice by advertising the sale in the designated newspaper for four (4) consecutive weeks. Each Sheriff office has designated a specific newspaper in which notices are advertised. Check on the website for the Sheriff office in your county.
Notice At The Property.
Although not required to do so, the Sheriff often posts a notice at the property 30 days prior to the sale and also provides written notice to the occupant whether that is you as the owner or if you are a tenant in the property.
Online Sheriff Sale Listings.
Each Sheriff office maintains a website where the current list of sales is posted in a searchable database. This is a good resource to get up-to-date information but not all offices update the site right away so some of the information may be somewhat out of date. You can also call the Sheriff office or go to each Sheriff website for a listing of all upcoming sales.
I have found in all cases that the personnel in the Sheriff offices are extremely friendly and helpful and a call or visit to their offices is always helpful.
