This holiday season, you may get the gift of delayed foreclosure because courts and banks will be closed some days around Christmas and New Year's.
Foreclosure sale dates often aren't scheduled by courts for the end December to account for the days they will be closed.
The closures will also temporarily disrupt progress on moving a foreclosure case toward a sale.
That's means that you may have slightly more time in your home than if your foreclosure case was moving forward at another time of the year.
Foreclosure Eviction Moratoriums
It's possible to have some delays in your foreclosure case just because of the courts being closed. But there are also some actions being taken specifically to help families stay in their homes during the holidays.
