What is done prior to the foreclosure sale?

The creditor's attorney must file the original final judgment with the Clerk's Office, which will record the judgment. Either simultaneously with filing the judgment, or shortly after, the creditor must issue the Notice of Sale and provide proof to the Clerk's Office.

A copy of the notice must be advertised in a local newspaper authorized by law to accept legal notices. The advertisement must be published once a week for 2 consecutive weeks, and the second publication must be at least 5 days before the sale date. Before the foreclosure sale occurs, the creditor must file with the Clerk's Office an Affidavit of Publisher that proves that the sale has been properly advertised.
