There is no additional time that the homeowner can stay based on age.However, if you plan on staying and "running out the clock" you can usually get an additional 4-8 weeks (sometimes a bit more) by forcing the bank, or the buyer, to file an unlawful detainer/forcible entry and detainer action (the civil court action to get an "eviction").When they do this, file an answer to the complaint and appear in court to defend the action (you won't win, but it buys you more time in your home).After the judgment is issued, you have a few more days before the sheriff or marshal serves the writ of eviction and actually forces you from the home (in some jurisdictions, it is even longer depending on the backlog).
