If the motion for a summary judgement is denied, then a foreclosure trial date is set. Both parties can then make their cases to the judge and thoroughly flesh out any issues or defenses. Sometimes cases are dismissed before the trial and if that happens, lenders usually have the case re-filed. If the lender wins at trial, or with the summary judgement, then the court will set a sale date for the foreclosed property. Usually the sale date is 30 days from the final judgement date, but sometimes it is extended to 60 or even 90 days from the final judgement. It may also be as little as 20 days from the judgement date.
