When might the foreclosures start now that the moratorium has ended?
I know there had been some articles in the past about the beginning of 2022 but will they start sooner?
Also, without filing a Chapter 13, is there a way to stop a foreclosure once you have been served with papers that the court has opened a case for the mortgage service providers like Nationstar/Mr. Cooper and Wells Fargo?
Curious as my situation is more complicated then just not having paid on the mortgage. Will you receive a notice of some kind or offers of assistance before being served with a foreclosure lawsuit?
Thanks for any advice.

Foreclosures are actively taking place. In one county that I monitor, I saw over 500 Lis Pendens filed in the first week of August after the federal moratoriums were lifted.
Foreclosure can very a very quick process in Texas. Use the Find a Lawyer tool at the top of the page to consult with an experienced foreclosure defense, and possibly bankruptcy attorney ASAP.
