Is There Such Thing as a Free House?

The short answer is: not really.

It is highly unlikely that your foreclosure lawsuit will end in you getting your house for free. The only way this could happen, is through multiple oversights on the bank's part. Your lender would have to neglect to file a foreclosure action after you default on your payments of a matured loan AND they would have to neglect filing that action for several years. Each state has its own Statute of Limitations which determines how long the bank has to proceed with the foreclosure of your home.

[Foreclosure Q&A] What is a Notice of Default?

A notice of default is a letter sent to a homeowner telling them that they have not made their mortgage payments and that they need to pay for the missed payments, plus fees, in order to avoid foreclosure.

The letter will call making up for the missed payments “curing the default”.

A notice of default is required by law and will usually arrive after three months of missed mortgage payments. It shouldn't be a surprise since you know when you haven't been paying your mortgage and the bank will have been in contact before sending the default letter.
