*If you transfer custody of a property to VA, you have 60 days from the date of the liquidation sale to submit title documents to VA. In some cases, due to redemption periods, confirmation hearings after sales, and/or delays in recorders' offices, other timeframes after the sale will apply for submission of title documents.
