August 2015 Lee County Florida Foreclosure Backlog Report:

August 2015 Lee County Foreclosure Backlog

—As of August 31, 2015: There were 1,496 active cases at the Lee County Clerks office

—As of July 31, 2015: There were 1,487 active cases at the Lee County Clerks office

—As of August 31, 2014: There were 3,783 active cases at the Lee County Clerks office

About this data:

—Foreclosure cases get a disposition with a judgment or dismissal.  (That’s what the disposition report shows.)

—The Certificate of Title is post judgment activity and is not reported as an additional disposition.

—The cases gets “reopened” only when they go back before the judge (like a Motion to Set Aside Sale or Set Aside Judgment).


—A month over month increase? The Lee Clerk report shows this as a decrease, either them (Lee Clerk) or us (SWFL REIA) have an error. Its not enough to really matter, in either direction.

—A year over year decrease.

—How many short sales that have traded but have also not had the Lis Pendens withdrawn? The real number is lower

—A mid-month check of the lis Pendens filings and Certificate of Titles show the trend is still the same.

—This is the lowest case load since November 2006.
