Voluntary Foreclosure Dismissal without prejudice.

Asked over 3 years ago - North Bergen, NJ

The plaintiff files a voluntary dismissal without prejudice. Does this mean that that the foreclosure process continues or it has to be re-filed again?

Any of your comments is warmly appreciated.

    Answered . Without prejudice means that the case can be re-filed and the foreclosure can be again resumed. I suspect that there were some problems with the foreclousre filings so the lender's attorney thought best to start the process over.

    Answered . The voluntary dismissal without prejudice means the pending action is dismissed.

    If the plaintiff at a later point in time determines that they wish to start the foreclosure process again, say a mortgage modification fails, they have the ability to do so.

    Thusly, should the plaintiff decide in the future to restart the foreclosure process, it will have to refile a new suit and commence the process from scratch.
