Good morning. A lot depends on if the home is bought by a 3rd party or if the bank takes it back. I say this because a 3rd party is going to want to get you to vacate a lot quicker, once title is issued and they own it. They would likely give you a notice to vacate and if you fail to leave will evict, so it could be a few weeks, at most. Now, if the bank buys it back then you could possible be offered a keys for cash type of agreement to leave in X number of days or they may wait to hire a realtor and sell the property so that could possible give you 30+ days. There is no exact period of time till they try and evict but if they do , you likely would be looking at roughly 30 days from start to finish before you would be ordered to vacate
