Kansas Foreclosure Laws Summary

Quick Facts:

  • Judicial foreclosure process is available.
  • Non-judicial foreclosure process is not available.
  • The primary security instruments are mortgages.
  • The timeline can vary by process, which typically takes 120 days.
  • The borrower has rights of redemption.
  • The lender may sue for deficiency judgements.

In Kansas, lenders may use the judicial foreclosure process to foreclose on mortgages in default.

Judicial Foreclosure

The lender must file a lawsuit to obtain a court order to foreclose. Once the order to foreclose has been approved, the property can then be sold at an auction to the highest bidder.

A notice of sale must be published in the newspaper once a week for 3 consecutive weeks to inform the public about the upcoming sale. The last ad should be published no later than 7 days, and not more than 14 days before the sale. Also, another notice must also be sent to the borrower 5 days after the first ad has been published.

The auction will be held at the county courthouse where the property is located. The winning bidder shall receive a certificate of purchase, as well as a sheriff’s deed which will certify that he will be the owner of the property once the borrower forfeits on his right of redemption, which usually lasts up to 1 year.

A deficiency judgement may be sued by the lender, but only for the difference between the foreclosure sale price and the original mortgage price.
