What is done prior to the foreclosure sale?
The original final judgment is filed and recorded with the Clerk's Office. In accordance with Florida Statute 45.031 (2), the Notice of Sale shall be published once a week for 2 consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation, as defined in Chapter 50, published in the county where the sale is to be held. The second publication must be at least 5 days before the sale. The Proof of Publication must be filed with the Clerk of Court no later than three (3) business days prior to any and all sales which proves the sale has been properly advertised. Failure to comply will result in cancellation of the sale by the Clerk.
