How Long Does the Typical Foreclosure Process Take in California?

It takes several months for a lender to foreclose on a California property. If everything goes according to schedule, the process typically takes approximately 120 days or about 4 months. Part of the reason that the process is so lengthy in California is that the borrower is given the right to pay the lender all of the outstanding money that is owed for 90 days after the Notice of Default was filed with the county.
