When a home sells at a sheriff sale how long do the renters have to move out? 6 Answers as of September 07, 2012We were purchasing a home on contract from my in-laws they filed bankruptcy we tried to save the home but had no luck the home goes to sheriff sale in 16 days we are still trying to find something in our area to move into.. It doesn't help that the in-laws were keeping our money every month and could save the home but do not want to because they have a new home in another state.

It depends of the sheriff in your county, but they often give 72 hours after they put a notice on your door. You may be able to get more time if you talk to the sheriff and move voluntarily rather than file any state actions.

In Ca. the purchasers at the sheriff's sale would still have to evict you, the legal process for which usually takes 30-90 days depending on hw quickly the new owners move. Often times, they will offer "cash for keys" whereby they may offer you $2,000- $4,000 to leave the place in good shape, move all your stuff out within 30-60 days.
