What Do You Do When You’re Served With A Florida Foreclosure Complaint?

Don’t panic!

Upon being served with a Foreclosure Complaint, a Homeowner should be aware that they have 20 days to respond.   Failure to respond will allow the Bank to file a Motion for Clerk’s Default.  In addition,  you will ultimately lose your opportunity to defend your Foreclosure action.

If a Homeowner does respond (which is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!), they can file a Motion to Dismiss or an Answer with Affirmative Defenses.  If a Homeowner files a Motion to Dismiss, the Bank must be able to defeat it before they can proceed with the Foreclosure.   A Motion to Dismiss attacks deficiencies within the 4 corners of the  Complaint and the attached  exhibits. It is important that the Homeowner state in their Motion to Dismiss, information pertaining to the allegations in the Complaint.  If a Homeowner files an Answer, they must state whether they admit or deny the allegations in the Complaint.
