The negative ramifications of foreclosure are very serious. If you are looking to avoid a foreclosure, we can help you evaluate your loan documents, your financial circumstances and the value of your property to help you determine what your foreclosure defense options are. If we find that errors were made by the mortgage lender in your loan documents or in the foreclosure process, we can help you take action to protect your rights. Some clients are able to undergo alternatives to foreclosure, such as through the short sale or deed in lieu process. Another way for individuals to get rid of their homes when it does not make financial sense to keep them is to carry out a strategic default. When homeowners strategically default on their mortgage loans, they stop paying them intentionally in order to start the foreclosure process. The Edwards Law Firm, PL helps clients implement these strategies, among many others.

Foreclosures in Florida

RealtyTrac's Midyear 2013 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report identified the state of Florida as the U.S. state with the highest foreclosure rate for the first half of the year. With 1 in every 58 housing units (or 1.74% of housing units) having a foreclosure filing during that period, Florida had a foreclosure rate that was nearly three times the national average. During the first six months of the year, Florida had 155,264 properties that were in some stage of the foreclosure process, according to RealtyTrac.
