How do I find out the actual foreclosure date for my home

This answer was rated:

How do I find out the actual foreclosure date for my home? The only documents I have are the Notice of Trustee's Sale. The auction date was 2/20/2008, but wouldn't the foreclosure date be prior to that? The reason I'm looking for this info is to see when I might qualify for an FHA loan. Thanks for your help.

Good morning. Actually the auction date is the foreclosure date. That is the date the sale on the courthouse steps takes place and would be the date from which to count your time period.

 

 

I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!

One final question...the house didn't sell at auction, it sold six months later, so is the auction date or the sale date the date of foreclosure?
