How does the eviction process work after a home has been sold at foreclosure auction.

Fort Myers, FL |

How does the eviction process work after a home has been sold at foreclosure auction. We are still living in the home that was scheduled to sell last Thursday at Foreclosure auction. How long do we have before we get kicked out of our home. We are the former owners (not renters). We have 2 small kids and do not want to move until we get kicked out to save some money. Please explain the whole eviction process if the house sold to someone or if the bank ended up with the house. Thank you

  1. Once the sale actually occurs, it is confirmed 10 days later. Once title passes to the new owner, they send the sheriff to evict you with a writ of possession. You may get as little as 24 hours. Check with the clerk to see if the sale actually occurred in your case, and if it did, better start looking for a place to go quickly, because you could get very little notice.
