REAL ESTATE: MORTGAGE FORECLOSURE: SALE: TRIAL COURT VIOLATED DUE PROCESS OF LAW BY SETTING ASIDE FORECLOSURE SALE WITHOUT NOTICE TO BUYER: ORDER SETTING ASIDE SALE REVERSED BECAUSE OF LACK OF NOTICE TO BUYER, INSUFFICIENCY OF OBJECTIONS, AND ABSENCE OF FINDINGS OR EVIDENCE IN RECORD OF MISCONDUCT, DEFECT, OR IRREGULARITY IN SALE

Skelton v. Lyons, ___ So. 3d ___, 40 Fla. L. Weekly D403 (Fla. 2d DCA February 11, 2015)

The appellate court, in a mortgage foreclosure, reversed an order setting aside a judicial sale because (1) due process was violated because the purchaser did not receive notice of the objections to the sale or the hearing on the objections, (2) the objections were insufficient because they did not allege that the sale was unfair or irregular, (3) the trial court did not make any findings, and (4) the record did not contain evidence of misconduct, defect, or irregularity in the sale.
