Nebraska Judicial Foreclosure
Generally, in judicial foreclosure, a court decrees the amount of the borrowers debt and gives him or her a short time to pay. If the borrower fails to pay within that time, the clerk of the court then advertises the property for sale.
In Nebraska, the court may order the entire property to be sold, or just some part of it. The order of sale may be delayed for up to nine (9) months after the judgment if the borrower files a written request for a delay with the clerk of the court within twenty (20) days after the judgment is rendered. Otherwise, the order commanding the sale of the mortgaged property will be given twenty (20) days after the judgment.
The borrower has the right to cure the default at any time while the suit is still pending by paying the delinquent amount owed on the mortgage, as well as any interest and costs that have accrued. However, the court may still enter a decree of foreclosure and sale, which may be enforced if the buyer goes into default on the mortgage again in the future.
The sheriff must give public notice of the time and place of the Nebraska foreclosure sale by:
1) posting the notice on the courthouse door; 2) posting the notice in at least five other public places in the county where the property is located; and 3) by advertising the property for sale once a week for a period of four (4) weeks in a newspaper published in the county where the property is located.
The court must confirm the Nebraska foreclosure sale after it takes place and once this is occurs, the borrower has no right of redemption.
