What to do After You have been Served a Foreclosure Summons how-to-respond-to-a-foreclosure-summons-part-1

Your answer must go to 2 places:


You will want to search for your county’s clerk of court. So in our case we searched:



In the foreclosure summons you should see the Clerk of the Court at the top corner or top right corner in capital letters. Usually you can look them up online. So in the example case below we used above you can see the Clerk of the Court was The 9th Judicial Circuit In and For Osceola County.

If you file a response incorrectly, you can completely ruin your only chance to properly defend your home. A botched foreclosure defense can speed up the foreclosure process leading to home loss in a few short months.

What Happens After you Answer a Foreclosure Summons?


Shortly after you file an answer, the court will contact you with any hearings scheduled for your case. You or your attorney will then have to attend the court hearing to defend your case.

You should be able to find the phone number and address for the plaintiff’s attorney in the last part of the foreclosure summons. It is usually located under their attorney’s signature.

If the foreclosing party had a blatant error in the summons (required documents missing, improperly served, etc) you may be able to file a motion to have the law suit thrown out. If you file an answer right away you are agreeing to fight the foreclosure case. Why fight the foreclosure if you can just have it dismissed? The longer you are able to keep the case from going to trial the more leverage you can create to use against the bank.

An attorney will usually be able to determine if the foreclosure complaint can be thrown out or not.

Consider This: Did you even need to respond to the summons?
