As the Beneficiary, are my advances returned?
If the property is reinstated, your advances are repaid as a part of the reinstatement. If the property is sold to a bonified purchaser for a full credit bid, the advances are included in the bid. If you are the successful bidder, then your costs and advances become a part of your ownership in the property. You will include our fees and expenses in the demand or reinstatement notice you provide to the borrower.

We are often asked, "What does The Foreclosure Company do?"
If you are the Beneficiary of a Note secured by a Deed of Trust on real property in California and have not been receiving your payments, we help you to collect the money due to you. We assist you throughout the process, from recording a Notice of Default to conducting a Trustee's Sale as a public auction. The process takes approximately four months, but may take longer if legal action is commenced.
So how much will the foreclosure cost?
The foreclosure fee and costs are set by California Civil Code and are in 3 stages. The first stage is after the recorded Notice of Default is mailed. The second stage is after the Notice of Trustee's Sale is mailed, the final stage is after a Trustee's Sale auction has been conducted. If the Trustee's Sale is conducted, the foreclosure fee is 1% of the unpaid Principal balance. This does not include any additional costs which are due to 3rd party services, such as the Trustee's Sale Guarantee Report, recording costs, mailings, Notice of Trustee's Sale publication costs and posting fees.
How compliant are you with The California Homeowner Bill of Rights?
The foreclosure process was once again changed on January of 2013, when the California Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR) became law. How familiar are you with this law prior to starting the foreclosure process? You may want to discuss these changes and all applicable laws (AB278 , SB900 and AB2314) with an attorney prior to starting any proceedings.
