New Jersey Resumes Post-Trial Foreclosure Activity Print PDF
The New Jersey Judiciary recently announced that effective November 19, 2021, the courts resumed post-trial foreclosure activity, including issuance of writs of possession, for residential foreclosure matters. This is in conformity with Executive Order 249, which suspended certain residential property removals through November 15, 2021.
In making the announcement, the Hon. Glenn A. Grant, J.A.D., Acting Administrative Director of the Courts, noted that the courts are in the process of identifying how federal and state relief programs and loss mitigation options affect the court’s current processes.
Judge Grant also advised that the Judiciary is exploring the possibility of an interim process that will allow eligible homeowners to stay a sheriff sale on the basis that they may be eligible for financial assistance under the American Rescue Plan.
