Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

As you may know in Texas, nce a home has been foreclosed, it cannot be redeemed.

Thereafter, if you don’t vacate the property following the foreclosure sale, the new owner will likely either: offer you a cash-for-keys deal, or take steps to evict you.

With cash-for-keys, the new owner offers you money in exchange for you agreeing to move out. This is generally cheaper and faster for the new owner than taking you to court for an eviction.

If you don't get a cash-for-keys deal, the eviction process begins when the new owner serves the former owner with three-day notice to quit (leave) and then files an eviction (forcible detainer) lawsuit. After the court grants judgment, it can issue a writ of possession after the expiration of five days. The constable or sheriff then posts a 24-hour warning at the property. If the occupants do not vacate the property, the constable or sheriff enters the property and removes the occupants and their belongings.

What happens to my mortgage?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
my mortgage company told me I should not worry about it because they are the only one that can evict me for non payment. Again, my mortgage is current. Is there anything else that I can legally do.
Real Estate Lawyer: Michael Gonzalez, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Mortgage survives the foreclosure as it is superior to the condo lien that was foreclosed.

Texas real estate lawyer: Texas Real Estate Title Question
Texas Real Estate Title Question1. H&W hold title JT WROS to a single family home. Their homestead which has been designated by Harris County as their homestead. 2. County allowed Over 65 exemption in addition to homestead exemption since 20133. Large judgment against H only in favor of federal govt was filed in 2000 or 2001 in Harris County4. Title history: a. H&W married since 1990 b. Property purchased by W only in 2003 and homestead exemption in effect in W's name only from 2004 to 2013 c. A “bogus” (wife never signed it) warranty deed was recorded in 2012 purportedly transferring title to homestead from W to H&W JTWROS.5. W is now 62 and H is 776. Does judgment against H only create a title objection if H&W want to obtain a mortgage or sell the house?7. If H deeds property “back” to W does judgment “go away” as a title exception?8. If H dies before W, does the judgment “go away” as a title exception allowing W to sell property?9. Assuming the answer to # 7 is no, then can W file a lawsuit in District court to have the bogus deed stricken/declared null and void? If so, what is the name of the lawsuit, i.e. an action to strike a deed or set aside or _____?10. In such a lawsuit would H be the only defendant necessary?11. Once it is filed, to save time can H file a consent to entry of a judgment declaring the bogus deed null & void?Thank you. … read more
