Foreclosure Defense Options
If you’ve received a foreclosure summons, you may think that your options are fairly limited, but there are actually a number of solutions available to you, including the following:
- Case dismissal – If the bank doesn’t have the documentation and testimony that it needs to prove its case against you, we may be able to have the case dismissed.
- Loan modification – In some instances, we’re able to work with the bank to negotiate a lower monthly mortgage payment. Depending on the facts of your case, our real estate lawyers may even be able to reduce the principal amount still owed on your loan.
- Short sale – A short sale occurs when a homeowner sells the property in question for less than what he or she owes on the mortgage loan. If you choose to pursue this course of action, we can negotiate with the bank to provide you with a waiver of deficiency.
- Cash for keys – Banks want to avoid having to evict homeowners and make extensive repairs once they’re gone, so if you agree to leave your home in broom-swept condition, the bank may provide you with a cash incentive to do so. Our property lawyers can negotiate this amount to ensure you’re left with something at the end of the foreclosure process.
