Foreclosure By Facebook

Foreclosure proceedings must work their way through the courts in the United States. Some legal experts expect that lenders will obtain the right to start initiate foreclosure proceedings by serving the foreclosed legal documents through Facebook. Although this has not taken place yet in the United States, it has already happened in Australia.

A couple in Australia defaulted on a mortgage loan. The lender’s lawyers found them on Facebook. The lawyer served the couple their legal papers through Facebook. The matter was litigated in the courts in Australia. The court upheld the lenders right to send foreclosure notices via Facebook! The court found the couple’s privacy rights were not violated and that they received adequate notice by service through Facebook.

Canada, New Zealand and United Kingdom Accept Service By Facebook

There have been cases in New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom where homeowners have been served foreclosure notices through Facebook.

Service of Foreclosure Papers By E – Mail

Courts in general have not accepted e – mail service of legal notices to be either reliable or appropriate. Courts are concerned that the end users will assume the e – mails are junk mail and not open them.
