Hello, Dominique! As far as I understand, you're trying to redeem a property before the foreclosure sale. What is your strategy? Do you have all the cash to cover the outstanding balance? Haven't you tried to refinance your mortgage? It is not very common to redeem a property before the foreclosure sale, but some states, including New Jersey, have what is known as the right of redemption. In New Jersey, you are given ten days to file a motion objecting to the sale and redeem your property. If you don't want to wait, bring this issue to the attention of your lender, try to find a new attorney or get in touch with a local real estate agent and discuss the best approach.

Will filing an injuction stop foreclosure proceedings?

Yes, Regina. That's what a foreclosure injunction does. The judge can do that permanently or temporarily, but as soon as a foreclosure injunction is declared in favor of the homeowner, the lender/government foreclosure is put on hold.

A house that i own was condemned and i havent had the monies to get the home up to code so the county is tearing it down in about a week. I have invested a good bit of money trying to get the home in order and i am just a little over a week from finishing enough to where the home should pass inspection but the code lady said the only way to stop the proceeding was to get a temporary injunction and when it went to court to have the work completed and bring the paoer work and that everything would be stoped permenantly. I need someone who can do the injunction for me as im running out of time.

At what point during a potential foreclosure can you file an injunction

Thank you for the question, Jezer!

Well, if an injunction is a judicial order restraining someone from beginning or continuing an action... the answer to your question is: any time between the moment a court order marks the house as foreclosed  (allowing the lender to put the house for auction)  and the moment the house has its title completely transferred to the new owner, because after that's done, if you contest it, it won't exactly be an injunction.
