How long do I have to answer an Alabama ejectment lawsuit after a foreclosure?
“I was foreclosed on and now I have been sued in an ejectment lawsuit. How long do I have to answer an Alabama ejectment lawsuit in circuit court after a foreclosure?”
You have 30 days from the day you were served to answer.
It’s critical that you answer the lawsuit within this time frame, because bad consequences come if you don’t.
(Give us a call at 1-205-879-2447 if you have any questions about what it means to be properly served or if you want to know the date you were served.)
You won’t have a house if you don’t answer the lawsuit.
In addition to getting a default judgment against you, the sheriff’s deputy will tell you to get out of the house.
You can also lose your right of redemption if you ignore the lawsuit.
You may also have to pay money damages if you don’t respond to your lawsuit in time.
Unfortunately, many bad things can happen if you don’t answer the lawsuit within the 30 day time limit.
If you live in the state of Alabama and you have any questions, give us a call at 1-205-879-2447.
We will gladly walk your through your options and help you decide your best course of action from where you are.
If you’d like some more resources, we have a couple of sites that will provide more information.
EjectmentDVD.com will take you to a specific page where we talk about ejectment lawsuits after foreclosures.
We also have a site called RESPAVideo.com.
There we talk about how this law, RESPA, can help you. We mainly use the before a foreclosure but it can also help after a foreclosure.
We also talk about a type of letter (under RESPA) you can send that may help your situation.
