How Foreclosure Defense Works
As court traffic loads increase, judges do not have the time to meticulously search through the massive documentation involved in mortgages and the selling and transferring of mortgages from one bank to another. Fraudulent and sloppy practices have made it impossible in many cases for the entity trying to foreclose to prove to the court who is the legitimate holder of the mortgage. You cannot rely on the judge to find these things out for you. You need the experience and insight of a knowledgeable attorney in this field to review your case, find these discrepancies and then ensure that the judge is made aware of them.
Our firm can provide this service for you. We know how to obtain the documents from the banks or lenders, what to look for, and how to present the evidence of fraud or errors by the lender in court. Many of the activities engaged in by mortgage lenders have been found to be illegal. To deal with them effectively and efficiently, you will be well served to have our legal team representing you and demanding the information so that the foreclosure on your home can be challenged.
Not every foreclosure will be challenged based upon fraud. You have rights under the Truth in Lending Act, and other options that may be possible to halt the sale of your home, or perhaps a short sale can help you move forward without the blot of a foreclosure on your credit score. Whatever the right course is for you, we will zealously protect your rights and interests. You must call our office so that we can review your documentation and determine the best course of action for you in your unique case.
