Modification, Foreclosure, and Short Sale
Mortgage payments can oftentimes be a person’s largest monthly expense. If you are having difficulty making your mortgage payments, contact our office right away. The sooner you seek legal counsel on your options, the better your chances are of saving your home and getting out of a situation with serious financial consequences.
Our attorneys are committed to mitigating the damage that may be incurred when you have been unable to keep up with your mortgage payments. We will seek loan modifications on your behalf. There is always the possibility that you may be able to work with your mortgage lender to modify your loan so that your payment is reduced or debt may be forgiven. Loan modification can mean changes in the initial loan agreement to make payments more manageable. Most banks do not want your house. They would prefer working with you to ensure that they receive continued regular payments.
A short sale may be another option to avoid foreclosure. If a lender agrees to a short sale, they agree to accept a mortgage payoff amount that is less than what is actually owed. The remaining balance of the loan is forgiven. Short sales result in the sale of your house but are better for your credit than a foreclosure.
If all options have been exhausted and foreclosure is inevitable, count on our attorneys to explore every possible defense. A foreclosure action does not mean all hope is lost. Our attorneys are committed to doing everything they can to represent you in the foreclosure process.
