If it is a mortgage foreclosure sale, rather than a tax or judgment execution sale, then generally there is no post sale redemption right. However, some mortgage companies will agree to accept a full pay off, or sometimes just full reinstatement after the sale. In such case they would voluntarily agree to vacate and set aside the Sheriff sale. That is a special situation that must be worked out with the mortgage company and their attorneys, and you should not get your hopes up too high. There is no law that says they have to do that. Some sheriff's will not evict until the deed is issued, but others will do so immediately after the sale. Be sure to confirm the information that you were given with someone high up in the Sheriff's civil division. They may or may not have a backlog that would give you as much time as you think.
