I live as a former renter in a foreclosed property. I received a 90 day notice, and now the attorney for the bank sent a copy of an "Order directing clerk to issue a writ of possession." I was attempting to make an offer to buy the property.
Offer all you want, but understand this: when the sheriff shows up with a writ of possession, then he escorts you off of the property with the shirt on your back and THAT'S IT.
No packing a suitcase. No coming back the next day with a U-Haul. No "can you give me 'til the weekend to move out?". No "but my coin collection is in there". You leave right then and there.
Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.
You have been warned.

As soon as the sheriff comes with that order you have 24 hours to vacate or the sheriff comes back and forceful removes you and anything you can carry; the rest of your belongings at the curb. Better start planning ASAP to get movers there or rent a truck immediately as the notice is coming any day now.

To quote the ever knowledgeable Yoda .."there is no TRY....only DO!".....while you were "attempting" to make an offer....whatever that entailed, fact is you not only didnt ACTUALLY do so, but more importantly, didnt actually make a deal. As such, while you were trying they we doing and got a judge to order issuance of writ of possession which will typically have the sheriff give you 24 hours to leave or they will forceably remove you from the property and the owner will place all you stuff at the curb. Next time focus on achievement and not effort.
