eviction process after foreclosure purchase? - Posted by john

Posted by john on January 30, 2002 at 23:56:39:

3 weeks ago i bought a foreclosed condo in chicago and am waiting for the deed(about another week) from the bank’s attorney. in the meantime i have heard that a neighbor of the other party asked him “when are you moving as i heard your property was bought at the foreclosure sale” and he replied “i don’t plan on moving”.

how or what do i do when i receive the deed? do i approach him and simply tell him i own the property and ask him to move or do i need to give him a written notice or? what if he refuses to move out? i am new to all of this and i could not find anything that pertained in the messages or archives here or the internet in general.

i appreciate any information or experiences anyone has had with this situation.

thank you,

You should talk to the Sheriff or Deputy that handles the sales, and ask them of the local process. They will be well familiar the 1, 2, 3 of the matter. I wish that I was familiar enough with IL law to advise here, but I am just not.

In the state of Ohio, where I buy most of my foreclosures, it is a matter of submitting $ 60 bucks to the Clerk of Courts, along with a certified copy of the Confirmation of Sale. The sheriff then pays a visit, and in due time, they will be out; or else! I’m sure there is a similar mechinism built into the law, for handling these matters, and usually an Atty is not necessary. Good luck on it.

Just the way that I view things…
