Foreclosure Defense Attorney
The thought of losing your home through a foreclosure proceeding is stressful to say the least. If you are facing this situation, it is important to have an attorney on your side. You are entitled to certain rights and you need experienced and competent legal representation to fight for you.
A common misunderstanding people have when facing foreclosure is that if you cannot make the mortgage payments on your primary homesteaded home, you would simply give the bank the keys to your house and be done with it. Unfortunately, it is not that simple. Factors the courts consider involve the valuation of the home versus the liability or debt that is owed. In some cases, an amount will still remain to be paid by the debtor/homeowner even after the foreclosure sale of the home has been completed. An Attorney experienced in Foreclosure defense will meet with to discuss your options and help put together a plan to meets your goals.
