Does the contract state anything regarding this?

Thank you for the additional information. The contract should have a specific notice requirement and period of time, that must pass, prior to you taking action. It should give the party a chance to cure and bring the loan up to date, prior to you taking any legal action, against them. Seeing how everything has been good to date and now you can not get in touch with them, it is possible that something has happened, so you need to try and find out what. In the meantime, you can start the notice process and if it turns out that they are just not paying, be set up and ready to go to take legal action, since you gave them the proper notice.

After the period has passed what is the steps to take
Real Estate Lawyer: RealEstateAnswer, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

At that point, you would need to foreclose/sue, for the breach of contract and take the property back. There may be language in the contract which outlines what you may need to do, so review that but if not, you need to see if they will cooperate and allow you to take the home back or if you need to sue and proceed through the court, for relief.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
