In case of Maryland foreclosures, the usual time taken from the beginning of the foreclosure process to the actual bidding date may take about 90 days. In case of Maryland, the home owner is not allowed the right to redemption. The right of redemption is the time period following the sale of home property where the property owner is given the right to retain the ownership.
The price for this option is generally the winning bid price. However in some states there might be some additional fees or interest or costs which have to be added to right of redemption. The time period can generally vary from 10 days to a year. However, in the state of Maryland the borrower cannot regain the ownership of property through the redemption right.
In Maryland, the banks can seek additional money than the amount that they have received from the Maryland foreclosure sale. This type of judgment is called deficiency judgment. The amount of money allowed in this case is the difference between the amount for which the house was sold and the loan amount.
The bank may proceed to file a compliant against the home owner who has not been able to pay his dues. Once this is done the court will proceed to issue a decree of sale. The court will also have the power to decide whether the default has occurred. Once this is done, the court will proceed to calculate and put forth the amount of debt and the interests and extra costs, if any.
The court will also give a certain period of time to the borrower to make the payment. If the borrower is not able to make the payment within this stipulated time, the house will be ordered to sell. However Maryland also allows for an out of court foreclosure.
