I explained in another message that ours is 45 and then three but it takes a ton of time to do foreclosures. It doesn't happen overnight -- banks are not known for their swooping ability. I think banks have to notify the HOA when it begins. The seller is likely to stop paying dues so that would be a trigger too.

I had a friend in the wonderful area of Detroit where there are literally no jobs or market for houses or even people who can rent a spare room. She was silently praying for the bank to foreclose. For some legal reason, when they did foreclose she had to stay in the house until the notice to evict came. She lived free for over six months but her life was also in limbo for that period.

I can't imagine any right of first refusal being six months!
