Notices of default are public information and are recorded at the county recorder’s office. Due to this, once a mortgage is in default, you may begin receiving letters and solicitations for various debt consolidation or bankruptcy services. The initial notice of default is mailed within 10 days of being recorded at the county.
What is a Notice Of Default?
This is the notice a trustee sends out to a borrower on a lender’s behalf which states that their payments have not been received. The notice clarifies the amount of money owed and may be sent to anyone who may be affected by a foreclosure, such as junior mortgage holders.
The notice of default gives the borrower three months to cure the default.
