Delaware is situated in the northeast region of the United States. In fact, it is one of America's smallest states and sits between New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania and the Atlantic Ocean. The state's relatively small size means that, unlike other larger states, it has a fairly unanimous appearance; it consists mainly of flatlands.
The state's capital is Dover and has a population of over 36 thousand, making it the second largest city in Delaware. As for its economy, commerce and industry produce large amounts of revenue for Delaware; Kraft Foods and Proctor & Gamble have their headquarters in this state . Many training programs in Dover train prospective workers for little to no cost; this is done mainly to guarantee employment. Local businesses also keep the state's economic growth at a steady level, while the tourism industry attracts visitors on a regular basis, largely due to citizens in neighboring states (most notably New Jersey and New York) wishing to travel around the surrounding areas. To a lesser extent, agriculture also can be said to hold a firm position in Delaware's economy.
Recreation in Dover is varied and plentiful and has many sightseeing opportunities available for any tourist who wishes to visit here. These sightseeing spots include the Delaware State Visitor Center, Dover's Air Force Base, the Johnson Victrola Museum and an exhibition based on the history of the state's agricultural and farming industry.

Delaware foreclosure laws
If a mortgage lender finds that a borrower (homeowner) is in default on a loan, the lender has the right to pursue a foreclosure by filing a complaint (known as a Lis Pendens) with the town or county court. The homeowner is the given a chance to contest the foreclosure in a preliminary hearing usually scheduled to occur 20 days after the initial complaint. If the homeowner fails to provide adequate reasoning as to why the foreclosure should not take place, or if the homeowner does not show up for the hearing, the court can rule against them and find the homeowner legally in default. After a period of 11 days, the lender can submit a request to the county Sheriff to schedule a sale of the homeowner's property.
In order to properly advertise the foreclosure sale, the Sheriff must issue a Notice of Sale stating the date, location, and terms of the sale. This Notice is usually posted on the property in question and any other public locations of the Sheriff's choosing. It must also be published in at least two local newspapers at least 14 days before the sale is to take place. In addition to these public advertisements, the homeowner and any Junior Lien holders (secondary loan providers) are usually sent copies of the Notice of Sale.
Delaware foreclosure sales are conducted by the county Sheriff and run in the style of a public auction. Once a winning bidder has been determined, the sale must be confirmed by the court, which takes about one to three months. Upon confirmation, the Sheriff transfers ownership of the property to the winning bidder. The original homeowner may contest the sale procedure and its outcome, but retains no right to redemption once a confirmation has been issued.
