Boston is the capital city of Massachusetts and the seat city of Suffolk County, Massachusetts and foreclosure in Boston can either be judicial or non judicial foreclosure but most of them are non-judicial foreclosure and are both provided for in Chapter 244 of the General Laws of Massachusetts.
Judicial Boston foreclosure
The court must issue a final judgment of foreclosure before the creditor can confiscate the property, the sale is usually conducted by the sheriff as part of a publicly sale notice; a complaint is to be filed with the court along with a Lis Pendens (a document recording showing that the home has been foreclosed).
Non-judicial Boston foreclosures
This type of foreclosure in Boston does not require the lender to acquire a court judgment before foreclosing on the property because he/she is empowered to do so by the power of sale clause that the borrower had signed when buying the home. However, the lender still needs to pay attention to the following:
