Kentucky Foreclosure Laws and Statutes | KY
Kentucky Foreclosure is Judicial.

The notice of action is filed, and is sent to the defendant who obviously has an opportunity of respond, 21 days to be exact from the date of service. If no response, the plaintiff can move for a default judgment. A motion is then made for judgment. The judgment may be default judgment, summary judgment, or agreed judgment. Entry of judgment occurs, followed by advertising of sale.
