Ohio Foreclosure Law: Introduction

Ohio is a judicial foreclosure state. This means that the Ohio court system oversees the foreclosure process, and banks must file a lawsuit and seek court approval in the form of a judgment before completing a foreclosure sale. 

Foreclosure is a complicated process. Sellers needing to foreclose and buyers faced with foreclosure, should seek legal representation.
