South Carolina State FAQs

Is South Carolina a judicial or non-judicial state?

Judicial

In a judicial foreclosure state, the lender must go through the court system in order to foreclose on a property. This process can be longer and more expensive for the lender compared to a non-judicial foreclosure.

As a real estate investor, it is important to understand the differences between judicial and non-judicial states because it can affect the amount of time and money it takes to foreclose on a property. It can also impact the availability of properties that are being foreclosed on and the process of purchasing those properties.

What is the process of closing on a property in South Carolina?

Attorneys customarily handle closings. Conveyance is by warranty deed. Mortgages are most often the security instruments. Foreclosures are judicial and take 3-5 months depending on court schedules. Foreclosure sales take place on the first Monday of every month following publication of notice once a week for 3 consecutive weeks. South Carolinians use owner’s and lender’s ALTA policies and endorsements. Buyers pay closing costs, title insurance premiums, and state mortgage taxes; sellers pay the transfer taxes. Property tax payment dates vary across the state from September 15 to December 31.
