Determine If Your Home Foreclosure Can Be Defended by Our Attorneys
When the bank tries to foreclose on your home, you have the legal right to defend it. If defended correctly, you may be able to stay in your home payment free for very a long time. The following questions should help you get a better idea if we can help or not.
Need more time to get a loan modification.
Need more time to find a buyer for a short sale.
Need more time to work out a deed in lieu of foreclosure.
Need to get a deficiency waiver so they are not liable for any extra debt when a home is sold for less than what they financed it for.
Need to buy more time to negotiate with their lender.
Are looking to continue living in their home mortgage free to save money.
Feel the bank has made a serious error and should not be allowed to foreclose.
Unfortunately, we cannot help if your home has already been sold.
TIP: After you are served a foreclosure summonsyou only have 20 days to respond in Florida. If you don’t respond within that timeframe a default judgement will be entered and you will most likely lose your house.
