Defending You From Home Foreclosure
Once you get behind on your payments, your mortgage company will become your adversary. It won’t look for ways to help you keep your home. Our attorneys will.
There are many solutions to mortgage debt problems. One may be right for you. The following are examples of ways to stop a foreclosure:
- Mortgage modification: By modifying your mortgage under the federal government’s Making Home Affordable program, you may be able to reduce your payments.
- Filing bankruptcy: Filing bankruptcy can stop the foreclosure process and give you time to negotiate a modification. By discharging credit card and other types of debt, you will have more money left over for house payments. You may also be able to discharge a second mortgage.
- Lease buybacks: In a lease buyback, a nonprofit company buys your home and leases it back to you. Later on, you can buy your home back. It’s important to be represented by a lawyer, as some companies offering lease buybacks are not reputable.
Act Now To Stop Foreclosure
The farther behind you get on your mortgage payments, the harder it is to save your home. Once you receive foreclosure papers, you have only 20 days to respond. If you don’t, you can lose your property.
