Exploring Your Foreclosure Defense Options

When we work with our clients, we take various steps to help them discover the foreclosure defense solutions that work best for them. In addition to considering their property values and financial situations, we also thoroughly review their loan documents. We check to see if there is any missing paperwork, mistakes on paperwork or even forged paperwork. There are many scenarios in which the bank or mortgage company made errors that can be used as a defense for the homeowner, including errors in the foreclosure process. We are equipped to help clients who want to take advantage of short sales, deed in lieu options and other options for getting rid of a distressed property that is no longer of value to the homeowner. When these tactics are used, it is vital that the homeowner obtain a waiver of deficiency so that he or she does not end up facing harmful financial liability later on.

At our firm, we can sit down with you and answer all your questions about why you should fight foreclosure. We can also answer questions about many other aspects of real estate law and foreclosure defense, including second mortgage foreclosure, cash for key settlements, the process of dealing with a homeowner association liens in short sale and much more.
