Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Approximate legal fees for a simple foreclosure can be $3000-$4000 depending on the attorney and can take anywhere from 60 days if there is no fight to a year or more. In fact, the FL average time for a foreclosure process to be completed is listed by the courts as about 935 days from start to finish (because owners object and cases go to court and homeowners drag them out). But in general, no objections and no fight from the owner, typically 60 days it can be done.
