Homeownership is key to the American Dream. Unfortunately, for too many, these unprecedented times have jeopardized their livelihoods and homes. Mortgage lenders have teams of attorneys on their side. The single best thing that you can do to protect yourself and your property is to engage an experienced foreclosure defense attorney early in the process.
In New York, once you receive notice of a complaint for judicial foreclosure, the clock starts ticking. Homeowner options diminish over time and can be very costly. Ideally, as soon as you think you might have trouble making your mortgage payments, you or an attorney should contact the lender to negotiate a forbearance or deferred payment arrangement. Foreclosure alternatives may include mediation, loan modification, refinance, short sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
If you do receive a foreclosure notice, contact a foreclosure defense specialist immediately. Missed deadlines can be fatal to your case.
As a foreclosure defense lawyer, we understand homeowners' frustrations and fears when being faced with a foreclosure. The firm goes above and beyond the average foreclosure defense firm to investigate and verify all mortgage documents for completeness and accuracy. If your lender violated the law when closing your transaction, you may have the right to rescind the transaction.
