New reports from two industry experts indicate that lenders are beginning to speed up their home-repossession practices, which have been delayed due to last year’s “robo-signing” scandal. Third-quarter foreclosure filings rose 13.2 percent to 9,170 in Miami-Dade County, compared to the previous quarter, according to data released Thursday by real estate research firm RealtyTrac. In Broward, total filings were up 36.9 percent in the third quarter to 7,712.
The increase in foreclosure filings is an indication that foreclosures delayed by the slowdown are beginning to work their way through the system. Current foreclosure totals are still far below last year’s numbers, but the trend is starting to shift upwards. The increase in new initial filings of foreclosure is a national trend; new default notices increased 14 percent nationwide in the third quarter.
