Question: After the court has issued a foreclosure sale date, is it possible to get an extension in New York? The bank dragged out my short sale until the last day and then declined the offer. I was also told by the court that I would be able to get an extension but when I attempted to get one a few days later, the court told me there was no sale date on the calendar and once it was entered then I could file for an extension to complete a deed-in-lieu. Now my goal is to try to get a deed-in-lieu and keep this foreclosure off my credit report.
Response: If you initiate the deed-in-lieu process with the bank, they are likely to hold off on the foreclosure sale for now. In New York, there are many procedural steps that the bank must take in order to actually have the sale go through. If you have a foreclosure sale scheduled and need to stop it on an emergency basis, then filing for bankruptcy is the way to stop the sale. However, if you are afraid of having foreclosure appear on your credit report, then you are not likely to agree to bankruptcy either, but it is a good idea to know your options regardless. Consult with an experienced attorney to determine the best course of action for you at this time.
