In the last few years our country has undergone a housing crisis caused by the sub-prime mortgage practices of the banking industry in the early and mid 2000's. The failure of these sub-prime loans has left millions of homeowners with mortgages they no longer can afford, resulting in foreclosure suits by the lenders. If you are facing the loss of your home, please keep in mind that while the foreclosure process is a serious matter, you do not need to navigate it alone. We urge homeowners to retain qualified counsel to ensure that their rights are being protected and all available foreclosure options are attempted. At our law firm, we take the time to analyze each case independently and prepare the best defense strategy for the benefit of the client. Whether the case requires challenging the bank's right to maintain the legal action, or negotiations are necessary for approval of a loan modification or a short sale, we can assist you. Please call or email us today for a free consultation.
If you find yourself underwater in your home loan, we can help you find alternatives to foreclosure. You may be able to obtain a loan modification through the different programs which banks offer, and the ones promoted by the Government -- one of the most famous being the HAMP Loan Modification Program (Making Home Affordable). These loan modification processes require a large amount of paperwork and a cumbersome process. After April, 2012, when most of the major banks signed a settlement agreement with the federal government, the time to obtain a loan modification has never been more favorable. Under the settlement agreement, homeowners may benefit from a loan modification, reduce the interest rate on their mortage, and in some cases, even obtain a reduction of a portion of the principal owed to help them keep their property. Please contact us for a free consultation.
