One of the duties of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is to conduct real estate foreclosure sales. When a homeowner stops paying their mortgage or has another qualifying unpaid bill, the sheriff’s office enforces the judgment awarded to the plaintiff, usually a mortgage company, against that homeowner for nonpayment.
The Sheriff’s Sale process allows the plaintiff to either recover the amount due to them, or receive a deed to the property. These real estate sheriff’s sales are regularly scheduled four times per year (March, June, September and December).
Prior to the sale, the sheriff’s office is required by law to publish the listings three consecutive weeks in a local newspaper. These listings will now be published in The Sentinel and on Cumberlink.com to fulfill that legal obligation prior to auctioning the property.
The first print publication of these sales ran in Friday’s Sentinel.
