A new foreclosure bill in New Jersey was just signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy.  The objective of the new Bill is to resolve the surge of new foreclosures and streamline pending cases.  In 2017 New Jersey led the country with nearly 70k foreclosures.

Some highlights of the new Bill are

  • Increasing the notice of intention to foreclose notice from 30 days to 180 days.
  • Require any person acting as a mortgage servicer to obtain a license from the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance for each main office and each branch office where business is conducted.
  • Reduce the statue of limitations in foreclosure actions from 20 years to 6 years.
  • Revise certain procedure under the “Fair Foreclosure Act” to expedite foreclosure proceedings
  • Require the county sheriff to conduct a foreclosure sale within 120 days of the sheriff’s receipt of a writ of execution.
