SCHEDULING SALE AND ISSUANCE OF DOCUMENTS POST SALE
- Alachua County will conduct all Foreclosure Sales online at www.alachua.realforeclose.com. Please see Eighth Judicial Circuit of Florida, Administrative Order No. 3.07 (May 28, 2015). All Foreclosure Sale Orders must be in compliance with said Administrative Order.
- Once the Final Judgment has been entered, plaintiff may then electronically file the Notice of Sale for the scheduled sale date. The plaintiff is responsible for sending a copy of the Notice of Sale to the appropriate newspaper for publication. The Clerk will generate the Certificate of Sale, Certificate of Title, and Certificate of Disbursements after the sale is held.
- The successful bidder at each sale shall enter the purchaser’s name and contact information for issuance of the Certificate of Title in the Real Auction database.

The Clerk of Court will then electronically sign the forms and e-file them through the portal, mailing appropriate copies to those addresses not receiving email. Plaintiff shall provide envelopes to the Clerk of Court once the Notice of Sale is filed, including the case name, case number, and sale date on the package of envelopes.
