In the state of Alabama, a lender may opt to foreclose on deeds of trusts or mortgages in default, by way of either a judicial or non-judicial process.  A judicial foreclosure involves filing a lawsuit in order to obtain a court order to foreclose on a property.  A judicial foreclosure is generally used when no power of sale exists in the mortgage or deed of trust.

A non-judicial foreclosure is utilized when a power of sale clause exists in a mortgage or deed of trust, wherein the borrower pre-authorizes the sale of property to satisfy the loan balance in the event of a default.
