Possible Solutions for Your Real Estate Issues

There are many different strategies that can be used to deal with underwater mortgages and foreclosures. The homeowner might consider getting rid of the distressed property through a deed in lieu or a short sale. Our law firm helps clients with the short sale negotiation process and with taking steps to obtain waivers of deficiency , whenever possible. These waivers prevent homeowners from being required to pay the bank large amounts of money later on through deficiency judgments. Whether you need assistance with a Chapter 7 short sale, a second mortgage short sale, a second mortgage foreclosure or some other type of real estate matter, we are here to provide you with the competent legal counsel you need.

Are you interested in taking the strategic default route? When you use strategic default, you choose to stop making payments on your mortgage so that you can intentionally cause your property to go into foreclosure. This sometimes makes the best financial sense for homeowners whose mortgage debt is too far beyond the actual value of the property.

These are just some of the ways you could potentially recovery from the issues caused by distressed homes. Contact our firm so that we can help you determine the solutions that best meet your needs!
