Avoid Foreclosures Law:

Homeowners sometimes find themselves in unexpected situations, such as job loss, health emergencies and other unmanageable expenses that can cause them to be unable to pay for their mortgage on time. If you are unable to pay your mortgage on time, even for several months, you need help from a foreclosure lawyer on how to avoid a foreclosure. You can avoid foreclosure by:

  • Refinancing your house
  • Negotiating with your lender for a "repayment plan", to get a couple more months to pay your mortgage
  • Negotiating with your lender to lower the mortgage payments or lower the interest rate to the amount before the rate increase
  • Asking your lender for a "loan change", which changes the terms of the loan to bring your loan balance current
  • Seeking a short refinance, where your lender forgives part of your debt and refinances the rest of the loan
  • Selling your house as a "short sale" for a lower amount than the amount still owed, which can save your credit rating and help you keep equity you have
  • Choosing a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure to give your house back to the lender and save your credit
  • Filing for bankruptcy

Avoiding Foreclosures Legal Issues:

If you have a large amount of debt or unexpected expenses, you may not be able to pay your mortgage any longer. Once you stop paying your mortgage, your home can and will be foreclosed. Avoiding foreclosure is a good idea, since when a homeowner loses their home, they will lose all the money they have invested in it. Foreclosures are also recorded to the public, as well as credit reporting agencies, which stays on your credit record for up to seven years.

What a Lawyer can do for you:

A foreclosure lawyer can help you avoid foreclosure and defend you in a foreclosure proceeding. A lawyer can work with your lender or a certified housing counselor to come up with foreclosure alternatives. A foreclosure lawyer can examine the terms and conditions of your property agreement to analyze how your personal and financial situation can excuse you from non-payment.
