North Carolina’s Supreme Court Delineates Crucial Differences Between Power of Sale Foreclosures and Judicial Foreclosures
A non-judicial foreclosure by power of sale is the more common, stream-lined method to foreclose a deed of trust in North Carolina. To allow a sale in a non-judicial foreclosure, the court must find the existence of only six factors. One of those six findings is whether there exists a “valid debt of which the party seeking to foreclose is the holder.”N.C. Gen. Stat. §45-21.16(d) (emphasis added).
