At our firm, you get to work with a real estate expert!

Choosing the Course of Action That Best Suits Your Needs

When you turn to our firm, you can learn more about the foreclosure process, the foreclosure timeline and ramifications of foreclosure. More importantly, however, you can learn about your foreclosure rights and the various options that are available to you for potentially avoiding having your home foreclosed upon. For example, we might be able to help you carry out a deed in lieu or a short sale. There are various types of short sales, including Chapter 7 short sales, second mortgage short sales and short sales involving homeowner association liens. In some situations, homeowners actually choose to go into foreclosure voluntarily because they find it more financially beneficial than continuing to make payments on a property that has lost its value. If it turns out this is the best option for you, we can help you execute a strategic default.

At our law firm, we can provide you with all the information you need—from information about the homestead exemption in Florida to information about how to protect your assets from deficiency judgments. We encourage you with to consult with our knowledgeable attorney regarding your foreclosure matter. We can look over your loan documents line-by-line to help you determine whether the bank or mortgage companies made any errors in the lending or foreclosure process. This could potentially provide you with greater pull in reaching a more favorable solution.
