MILWAUKEE, WI, UNITED STATES, June 22, 2024 / — Surplus funds from foreclosure sales represent a critical opportunity for homeowners to reclaim some equity after their property is sold. These funds arise when the proceeds from the sale exceed all the debts and expenses required to be paid according to the final foreclosure judgment. National Equity Agency (NEA), a professional surplus recovery company, specializes in guiding individuals and organizations through the complex process of recovering surplus funds from property sales, particularly after foreclosures or tax sales.

What Are Surplus Funds?
Surplus funds, often referred to simply as “surplus,” are the remaining funds generated from the sale of a foreclosed property when the auction price is higher than the total amount owed on the property. This surplus arises after satisfying all outstanding obligations, including the mortgage balance, taxes, liens, and any foreclosure-related expenses mandated by the court’s final judgment. For example, if a property with a foreclosure judgment of $200,000 sells at auction for $225,000, the surplus funds would be $25,000.

The Role of Surplus Funds in Foreclosure Sales
Surplus funds play a pivotal role in the foreclosure process by potentially providing financial relief to former homeowners. These funds are not automatically dispersed; homeowners must proactively claim them through specific legal procedures. NEA specializes in guiding homeowners through this process, ensuring they understand their entitlement and maximizing their recovery.

Who is eligible to claim surplus funds?
Typically, the former homeowner of record at the time of foreclosure and any subordinate lienholders, such as second mortgage holders or judgment creditors, are eligible to claim surplus funds.

Where did this surplus come from?
A surplus arises when a property is foreclosed upon, and the bank that financed the loan is paid all of the outstanding balance to satisfy their judgment, as well as any other lienholders on the property. As a result, there could be money left over that the property owner is entitled to receive. A surplus occurs when the property sells for more than is owed, and this money is referred to as surplus funds.

Why can’t surplus funds be recovered independently?
In theory, it is possible. However, foreclosure attorneys work for the banks and are notoriously overzealous when filing foreclosure lawsuits, leaving a very tedious and cumbersome process to navigate. They typically inflate the overall summary judgment amounts, which are paid to the bank and miscellaneous creditors. When this happens, it distorts the accounting based on unrelated outstanding liens that may or may not be valid within the foreclosure lawsuit. Navigating these obstacles is very difficult. It is advisable to hire National Equity Agency to maximize the overall return. Collectively, the staff and attorney network have over 100 years of real estate experience. Additionally, clients’ cases are all filed electronically and go directly to the local court Civil Division, ensuring faster response times for the initial appearance and hearing. Depending on the state, there may be no need to take valuable paid time from work, as an attorney will appear on behalf of the client, saving further time and money. Every aspect of automation is utilized to ensure that checks are made payable and delivered much more quickly than industry competitors.

Why didn’t the bank or the County notify about the surplus funds?
After the banks and lienholders collect their portion of the sale proceeds, they have no interest in the remaining surplus; therefore, the surplus funds are kept in the County treasury where the property is located until it is claimed. The county will usually send the previous owners one notice to inform them of the surplus funds available, but that notice gets mailed to the address of the foreclosed property. Unless the homeowner left a forwarding address, they will likely not see the notice. If the County receives no response, the money will remain there for approximately two years, then it would be marked as unclaimed and forfeited by the homeowner. Additionally, the notice that the county sends out often looks similar to a foreclosure notice, and if the homeowner doesn’t read it carefully, they might mistake it for something negative instead of positive.

How is contact information obtained?
National Equity Agency works closely with the county courts for properties that have been foreclosed upon in the states operated in, which are Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Texas. Various skip-tracing tools are used to pinpoint valid phone numbers, addresses, etc. The data is gathered from old and recent credit reporting data and other demographics designed to locate individuals. These methods are completely legal and resemble similar methods used by collection agencies. In some cases, family members or close friends who may know how to reach the individual being sought are contacted.

How much does the firm charge?
National Equity Agency charges a nominal service fee, which is only paid after the funds are released by the judge. The firm absorbs all the legal costs, court filing fees, and any registration fees. There are no upfront fees required. Additionally, fees are significantly lower than other firms in the industry.

How long will it take to receive surplus funds?
A very transparent and speedy process is in place. On average, cases are completed in 14 to 21 days depending on the state. However, a partner at National Equity Agency can always be reached for updates via phone or text.
Foreclosure is a deeply challenging experience, often leading to significant financial hardship. However, amidst this difficulty, a hidden source of financial relief might exist: surplus funds.

Understanding Surplus Funds in Foreclosure: What are Surplus Funds?

Surplus funds arise when the proceeds from a foreclosed property’s sale exceed the total owed to the lender and all associated fees. By law, these unclaimed funds belong to the former homeowner.
Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of their entitlement to surplus funds. Here are some reasons:

1. The Overwhelming Nature of Foreclosure: Foreclosure is a stressful and overwhelming process. The focus is often on saving the home, leaving little room to consider legalities like surplus funds.

2. Complexity of Legal Claims: The legal process surrounding surplus claims can be intricate and confusing. Understanding court procedures, deadlines, and documentation requirements can be a significant obstacle for homeowners.

3. Communication Gaps: Life changes like relocation or lost contact information can make it difficult for courts to locate and notify homeowners about unclaimed surplus funds. This often leads to these funds remaining unclaimed for extended periods.

The Foreclosure Process: When mortgage payments are defaulted on, the lender can initiate foreclosure proceedings. This legal process allows the lender to seize and sell the property to recoup their financial losses.

Surplus Funds Explained: During the foreclosure sale, the property is auctioned to the highest bidder. The proceeds from this sale are then used to pay off:

– The outstanding mortgage balance
– Any accrued interest on the loan
– Associated fees like legal costs and property taxes

Surplus Emerges: If the final sale price surpasses the total owed and covers all associated fees, surplus funds remain. These funds rightfully belong to the former
