Foreclosure can be a complicated and confusing process for homeowners.
If you’ve received a foreclosure notice, there are several steps that you should take.
STEP 1: Don’t panic.
STEP 2: Contact an experienced foreclosure attorney.
And you may be wondering if you should try to fight the banks yourself or if it’s necessary to hire a lawyer.
Having an attorney can be very helpful. If you’re represented, the bank can no longer call. They can no longer come to your house. They can’t send you letters.
Don’t lose your home.
If you’re facing foreclosure, you have many options available and you shouldn’t go at it alone.
Because many times the banks can’t prove their case. And how does that happen?
“In Florida, there’s many defenses to a foreclosure that need to be investigated on a case by case basis. The bank can fail to send you the proper documents before filing the case. We can challenge the validity of the mortgage. The bank may not even have the proper paperwork to file the foreclosure case at all.”
If a homeowner fails to properly raise these affirmative defenses in their answer to a mortgage foreclosure action, their rights to use these defenses may be waived.
