A: I am not sure I understand this question to be able to provide an answer. In terms of foreclosure, if there is no timely answer to the complaint, a Plaintiff may move for "default". This typically addresses the issue of whether the Plaintiff has a right to foreclose. After that, there is an additional process for title to be divested.
