Facing Foreclosure? We Can Help.

Many people who receive a foreclosure notice are so frightened that they do not know what to do or where to turn to help ― and often make the mistake of doing nothing. However, putting the foreclosure notice in the drawer and hoping the problem will go away is one of the worst things you can do.

In fact, if you do nothing, the foreclosure process will simply go on without you and you will likely be found in default, ruining your credit score and losing your home in the process. Quite simply, if you are served with a foreclosure notice, you need to respond ― and you need to hire a lawyer.

Understanding Your Foreclosure Alternatives

While you may be able to fight the foreclosure process in certain situations ― such as when the lender engages in fraudulent behavior or there are errors in the paperwork ― it is important to remember that other legal options may also exist under New York law, including:

  • Loan modification: You may be able to refinance your debt, extend the term of your loan or work out a more manageable payment plan.
  • Short sale: If you are allowed to sell your home for less than you owe, you will be able to avoid foreclosure, although you will have to move.
  • Deed in lieu of foreclosure: This option involves you returning the property to the bank in exchange for the forgiveness of your mortgage debt. While you will have to move, you avoid the foreclosure process.

To learn which alternative may fit your needs best ― as well as the pros and cons of each ― contact The Rand Law Firm, P.C., and speak with an experienced foreclosure defense attorney today.
