How Foreclosure Could Be Prevented

When a bank or lender tells you that they intend to foreclose on your home, you have only 20 days to respond to their notice. On that 21st day, a default judgement will be filed against you and your home is automatically foreclosed. Why accept a loss when there are real ways you can improve your situation and get the help you need?

Top strategies for fighting foreclosure include:

  1. Short sales: You can place your home on the market priced at its current value, figuring in your mortgage. While a short sale does end with you losing your home, it is better than a foreclosure, which takes away both your home and your chance of selling it. Talk to your lawyer about short sales, for with the right argument, a bank will often approve it over foreclosure due to the fact that they can make more money off a short sale as well.
  2. Mortgage modification: A home on the market with no one in it is intrinsically less valuable than a home occupied by someone in debt. With the assistance of our foreclosure defense attorney, you may be able to convince your bank or lender to modify your mortgage payments and interest to keep you in your home, rather than having you default and lose it. In the end, everyone can benefit from a mortgage modification.
  3. Chapter 13 bankruptcy: If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may very well lose your home in exchange for total debt discharge. Using a Chapter 13 filing reduces and reorganizes your debt into more affordable payments, increasing your chances of preventing foreclosure and eventually eliminated your debt.
