There is a rule of thumb that says lenders can face losses from the loan default and subsequent foreclosure that equal up to 40% of the loan amount. The actual costs will vary based on the type of home, the state where it is located, the process the lender uses and other factors. Hence the costs can vary a lot from one lender to another and from one property to another. In some states the lender can come after the borrower for any losses (deficiency judgment) while in other states the lender more or less is blocked from doing so. It is mostly decided at the point the loan is taken out as the loan documents will state what a lender can and cannot do unless there was fraud when the loan was applied for. That is why a borrower really should read the loan documents.

If you have accounts in the bank that holds your mortgage, the bank can take the money in your accounts to set off what you owe in the foreclosure. You should never have bank accounts in the bank that you owe money to. If the bank requires an account, just open an account and put in the amount needed to direct-pay the bank.

Since the U.S housing market bubble collapsed in 2008, bank foreclosure has become a reality for millions of homeowners. People who understand foreclosure rules have the best chance of keeping their property or minimizing their personal losses if the foreclosures go forward.What Is Bank Foreclosure?Every mortgage spells out the lender's remedies if the mortgage holder fails to make timely payments or properly maintain and insure a property. A bank choosing foreclosure to protect its loan investment takes physical possession and legal ownership of the home. It can then attempt to sell the real estate for enough money to cover the remaining balance on the loan.What Triggers the Bank Foreclosure Process?Foreclosure typically follows a borrower's sustained failure to meet the mortgage terms. Missing between three and six months of payments, dropping insurance or damaging the property enough to significantly reduce its value can trigger foreclosure. Each state has a specific legal process allowing the bank to transfer the home's title back to itself.Costs of Bank ForeclosureA bank assumes legal, postage and advertising fees for each property it places in foreclosure. More fees accrue if the home actually goes to auction. Borrowers have the right to correct the mortgage situation throughout the foreclosure process, but they must also pay the bank's foreclosure fees. The best scenario for a borrower is to avoid foreclosure if at all possible.Avoiding ForeclosureMeeting mortgage payments on time and properly maintaining and insuring a home is sometimes impossible, especially following a job loss or medical emergency. In these instances, it is best to notify the bank immediately and negotiate a temporary change in mortgage terms. This change can lower the monthly payments to a manageable level until the borrower's financial situation improves.It may also leave money necessary repairs and insurance premiums. If the bank refuses to negotiate, the borrower can attempt to refinance through another lender or sell the home and pay off the loan. Bank foreclosure seriously damages a credit history and makes it difficult for a borrower to obtain future mortgages.
Then you still owe money to the bank.
Falling behind on your house payments can be a very scary thing, especially if you don’t know what to expect during the bank foreclosure process. The details may differ from state to state, but the basic process is the same pretty much everywhere. Here is a brief overview of the basic steps that the foreclosure process takes. The foreclosure process usually starts with the homeowner being served with a foreclosure notice. Depending on where you live, the notice can be sent in the mail, published in the newspaper or tacked to the door of the house. The amount of time that passes between when you fall behind on your payments to when you are served with the foreclosure notice mostly depends on your lender. However, in some states the mortgage must be in arrears for a certain amount of time before the lender starts the process. Once you receive the foreclosure notice, it is usually very difficult to work out payment arrangements with the lender. However, it may still be possible. At this point, they usually want the loan paid off in full in order to stop the foreclosure. There is usually a waiting period after the foreclosure notice is served to allow the borrower a chance to pay off the debt before the house is sold. The waiting period varies from one state to another but it is usually just a few weeks so don’t waste time if you want to try to save your home. The next step in the bank foreclosure process is the sale of the home. This is usually done by auction, either at the courthouse or in front of the home. The bank usually sets a minimum bid equal to the amount that was owed, plus legal costs that have been incurred up to that point. The winner of the auction (or the bank, if no one bids) assumes ownership of the home following the redemption period, if there is one. In many states, homeowners are given a chance to redeem their properties following the sale. The redemption period is often a few months, during which time the borrower can reclaim ownership of the home if they repay the full amount owed, plus legal costs and any costs incurred by the lender in preparing for the auction. This is the last step in the bank foreclosure process and the homeowner’s last chance to save the home from foreclosure.
One advantage is that the foreclosure process will end sooner. Once the bank accepts the deed in lieu of foreclosure, all of the legal procedures come to a end immediately. The bank accepts the deed as payment in full for the loan, and the homeowners are no longer in default of the mortgage. Another benefit is the homeowners will not have as badly damaged credit as if they had gone through the full foreclosure. With the foreclosure process ending sooner, there are fewer missed mortgage payments. The bank typically reports late payments up until the month of the county foreclosure auction, which can result in many missed payments. With a deed in lieu of foreclosure, some of these can be avoided, as the foreclosure process is terminated early. This, in turn, allows homeowners to begin recovering financially more quickly than if they had let the home go through with the entire foreclosure process. They can begin working on credit repair sooner rather than later.
The banks claim is superior to yours because your father conveyed the property to the bank when he granted the mortgage. You would be entitled to any surplus after the bank deducts its debt, costs and expenses of foreclosure.
