North Carolina state COVID-19 update provided by Riley Pope & Laney, LLC

Posted: 09/21/20

Most of the North Carolina orders impacting foreclosure proceedings have expired so hearings are proceeding.  One order that the North Carolina Judicial Branch has extended permits the filing of responses/other documents by regular mail, and if the documents are received by the clerk within 5 business days of the due date, those filings are considered timely.  As long as this order is in effect, the main impact to the foreclosure process will be waiting an additional week after the upset bid period would normally expire before we can “confirm” a sale. 

Some county clerks have questioned whether loans are subject to a moratorium, and whether foreclosure actions may continue.  In order to avoid unnecessary delays, our firm prepares a certification explaining why the foreclosure may continue, and presents this certification to the clerks at the hearing. 

Other than those matters currently under a HUD, VA, Fannie, or Freddie moratorium, our files are being pushed as they were prior to the Covid-19 orders. 

Riley Pope & Laney is here to serve its clients through these difficult times.  We will continue to provide updates as we return to normal court operations.

  1. Most of the North Carolina orders impacting foreclosure proceedings have now passed so hearings are proceeding.  There is an order that expires June 20 which permits the filing of responses/other documents by regular mail and, if the documents are received by the Clerk within 5 business days of the due date, those filings are considered timely.  As long as this Order is in effect, the main impact will be to add an additional week to the upset bid period before we can “confirm” a sale.
  2. Some county clerks of court are requiring affidavits or certifications concerning applicability of the CARES Act before they will proceed with hearings.  Our firm has prepared certifications which will be completed based on information provided by the client then presented to those clerks of court.
  3. Other than those matters currently under a HUD, VA, Fannie, or Freddie moratorium, our files are being pushed as they were prior to the Covid-19 orders.
