How Long Does the Typical Foreclosure Process Take in Massachusetts?

It takes about 3 months to foreclose on a Massachusetts property if the property is being closed upon through a non judicial process and the lender is timely with all of the required notices and procedural requirements for foreclosure. If the lender does not act quickly, if the borrower contests the foreclosure or if it is a judicial foreclosure than the foreclosure process may be significantly longer than 3 months.
