Foreclosure FAQs

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS NOT TO BE CONSIDERED LEGAL ADVICE AND IS NOT INTENDED TO REPLACE AN ATTORNEY

As Sheriff’s Sales are buyer beware, it is highly recommended you contact an attorney before purchasing at a Sheriff’s Sale as you may not be purchasing what you think you are. The Harrison County Sheriff's Office cannot give legal advice.

A foreclosure sale occurs when a special execution is issued from the Clerk of Court with a copy of a judgment with a direction to the sheriff that lists the specific property the judgment was rendered against.  This order will list the real estate (legal description) to be sold.  The Sheriff’s Office then sets a sale date on the order from the court to sell the specific property.

The judgment amount plus costs along with sheriff’s fees are prepared on a Notice of Sheriff’s Levy and Sale and posted in three public places:

  1. Harrison County Sheriff’s Office

  2. Harrison County Courthouse

  3. Logan City Hall

The notice must be posted at least 4 weeks before the sale date.  The notice must also be published in a newspaper within the county.  The first publication must be at least 4 weeks prior to the sale date and the second publication must be at a later time before the date of sale.

A redemption period may be ordered in the judgment decree allowing the defendant a certain period of time to redeem the property sold.
