Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.


will the foreclosure hit my credit?


Yes, because it a public legal action and the credit reporting agencies consider this to be a negative credit event...

It would be reportable for up to 7 years from the date of the actual foreclosure judgment.
