When a defendant files a notice of objection to a foreclosure sale, it is between the defendant and the plaintiff.
In the past, when an objection to the sale has been filed, I, the winning third party bidder, have not gone to the hearing.
Thursday I got a lesson.
The judge noticed that no notice had been given to the winning third party bidder, regarding the hearing.
I was well aware of the objection, because I wanted the certificate of title and I was anxiously awaiting the hearing to determine if I was going to get the property.
After waiting 3 weeks for the hearing the judge postponed the hearing to allow the defendant to serve notice to me, the winning third party bidder.
It seems like the judge rewarded the defendant for failing to do what the defendant is required to do....give notice.
Had I attended the hearing, the judge would have recognized my presence as a sign that I was served.
