In Texas, you typically do not need to involve a court or judge to conduct a foreclosure .  In otherwords, Texas is considered a non-judicial foreclosure state.  When you loan money to an individual to purchase a real estate or owner financed the sale of your real estate, you should have obtained a promissry note from the buyer as well as a deed of trust or sometimes referred to as a mortgage.  The promissory note outlines the terms of payment and deed of trust gives the lender a lien.  If your loan was documented properly and you are not getting paid in accordance with the promissory note, the deed of trust trustee or substitute trustee can sell the property to repay the note.  This is what is known as the foreclosure process. 

Unless the deed of trust or mortgage contains a power of sale clause and specifies the time, place and terms of the sale, the non-judicial foreclosure is typically carried out as follows:

  • Before proceeding with the foreclosure, Texas laws state that the lender must mail the borrower a notice of default informing the borrower that he/she has twenty (20 days to pay the delinquent payment or the debt will be declared due and foreclosure proceedings will begin.
  • After the (20) day cure period has expired, a Notice of Acceleration will be mailed to the borrower via certified letter and accompanid by a notice of foreclosure.
  • At least (21) days before the foreclosure sale, a foreclosure notice must be: (a) filed with the county clerk; (b) mailed to the borrower at their last known address; and (c) posted at the Taylor County Courthouse.
  • The foreclosure sale must take place on the first Tuesday of any month, even if said Tuesday falls on a legal holiday, but only after the proper preliminary notices have been given.  The sale is typically conduted on the courthouse steps by auction to the highest bidder for cash.  Anyone can bid even the lender, who bids by cancelling the balance due on the note, or some part of it.
  • The trustee will transfer the property to the highest bidder via a trustee's deed.  The highest bidder/new owner will own property free and clear of any junior liens, but subject to any superior leins such as ad valorem real property taxes and liens recorded prior to the date of the deed of trust.
