Mortgage Foreclosure Defense
Because of the economy, and the practices of certain lenders, we have experience in the area of foreclosure defense, including representing individuals and businesses. This type of work can involve requesting the intervention of the Court, filing pleadings with the Court, and seeking Orders of Protection or other rulings from the Court, depending upon the facts and circumstances of the case.
Mortgage Rescuers – a mortgage rescue scheme can work in the following manner. Mortgage rescuers can promise to “save your home” by offering you a deal. The rescuer (or a third party investor) (1) buys your home from you for a small fraction of its actual value, (2) you stay in the home as a renter, (3) you have to buy back the home when you are financially on your feet.
For many people, their home is the most significant financial investment they will make during their lifetime. When you are on the brink of losing your home through a mortgage foreclosure, you need an attorney who will take swift and aggressive action to protect you. Even if you have not paid your mortgage in several months, there are often viable defenses that may protect you and may keep you in your home for months and sometimes years while litigation is pending. At the same time, our attorneys will utilize their experience to help you find the best long-term solution for your circumstances.
Depending on facts and circumstances, we can intervene on your behalf to defend you on foreclosure proceedings, take action any sale, attempt to reopen default judgments, etc.
There can be action taken in regard to extending the time in which you can sell your house. Counterclaims can be considered against the noteholder or other parties. You should be concerned regarding excessive fees that are combined into any deficiency judgments. We can attempt to negotiate a deed in lieu of foreclosure. We have had experience in renegotiating recapitalization of arrearages or forgiveness of certain add-ons in a mortgage modification agreement or forbearance agreement.
