Question by Justin F: How long would it take to evict former owner (but current occupant) of house acquired in short sale, in VA?
A bank has approved our offer for a short sale of a home in pre-foreclosure. The current owner of the property has told us he will only move forward with settlement if he can have two months free rent back while he finds someplace to go. If it came down to it, and I accepted this offer, to what lengths could the current owner extend his stay beyond those two months–through filing bankruptcies, or other legal means that could prevent me from moving forward with an eviction? Clearly, I am not going to move forward unless I KNOW that I can control when he vacates the property. How long could he potentially “squat”, once I settle on the house, before I could have him evicted? Again–for you legal experts out there–this is in the state of Virginia.

at the most if you file for eviction one day after two months would be three weeks, without knowing the state on the day after on the two months file eviction which should take three weeks
