THIRD-PARTY CHALLENGES TO MOTION TO SET ASIDE
Often times the new owner will challenge a motion to set aside sheriff sale. A third-party purchaser may assert a challenge to a sale by showing good cause to deny the petition. For example, if the third-party purchaser has already made substantial investments in the Property in may weigh against the motion to set aside sheriff sale.
SETTLEMENT BEFORE LITIGATION OF MOTION
Often times a motion to set aside sheriff sale is settled before actual litigation. For example, a third-party purchaser may agree to set aside a sale in consideration for their costs paid and some return on their investment. On the other hand, a prior owner may argue to withdraw their motion to set aside sheriff sale in consideration for payment of costs. You may consider resolving a motion to set aside by settlement since there is uncertainty in any legal proceeding. One way to mitigate such uncertainty is with a reasonable settlement.
