How Does Foreclosure Defense Work?

We have a feeling if you are here reading this page, you’re probably stressed out beyond belief, so how about an ice breaker? Let’s start with a joke; even attorneys love a good lawyer joke.

What’s the difference between an accountant and a lawyer? Accountants know they are boring!

Ba-Dum-Dum. Alright, back to the serious stuff.

The foreclosure process in Florida can be a confusing and intimidating. Let us assure you, though, that our foreclosure defense attorneys have years of legal experience and have defended countless families from foreclosure proceedings. When it comes to foreclosure defense, our Florida foreclosure law firm employs strategic foreclosure solutions designed solely for the protection of homeowners’ rights.

As you may know, the foreclosure process is initiated when a mortgage company files a foreclosure lawsuit against an individual who has been unable to make their regular loan payments on time. The foreclosure lawsuit will essentially seek to force the sale of a home so that lenders can reclaim what they are owed. Fortunately, with the help of experienced foreclosure attorneys, you may be able to avoid this outcome.

Our Florida foreclosure attorneys can help you develop an effective foreclosure defense strategy by:

  • Analyzing the facts and legal documents of your foreclosure case.
  • Negotiating a loan modification or foreclosure alternative that works best for you.
  • Determining if foreclosure defenses exist in your case.
  • Utilizing foreclosure defense strategies, such as filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, to protect and defend your home in court.

What is strategic foreclosure defense?

Foreclosure defense is quite simple. In fact, let us explain to you how foreclosure works. Once you receive a notice from your mortgage company that your home is in the foreclosure process, it is time to take action IMMEDIATELY. Although every foreclosure is different, most foreclosure cases end with a sale date. This means that you have very limited time to seek legal help to attempt to save your property.

Surely, these past few weeks, months, and maybe even years have been rough on you. Our foreclosure lawyers are here to let you know that the future can be brighter. If you want to consult with an experienced foreclosure defense attorney in Florida, contact The Dellutri Law Group, PA.

Did you know Chapter 13 bankruptcy can save your home from the foreclosure process? It’s true! Filing for Chapter 13 stops foreclosure on your home, at least temporarily, while you attempt to work out the details of your debt consolidation payment.

What is a debt consolidation payment? When filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you are able to include the back mortgage payments into your bankruptcy to get up to date and save the home; however, it is important to know that you will need to earn enough income to make your current mortgage payment at the same time you are paying off your past-due debts. As long as you can make both payments, Chapter 13 will help you avoid foreclosing on your home and bringing the past-due mortgage payments to current.

Common Causes of Foreclosure

Foreclosure is a stressful process, but you are not alone. Several people who go through this process overcome their circumstances, especially with help from experienced Florida foreclosure attorneys.

There are a few common causes of foreclosure, including the following:

  • Medical bills from illness or injury leading to lack of funds
  • Expensive divorces
  • Losing your job or loss of money in another way
  • Decline of a family business
  • Death of a partner or other family member

Remember that if you are facing foreclosure for the reasons above or another reason not listed, that you and your family have options available to you. You should speak to a foreclosure defense attorney in Florida immediately to learn more about these legal options. Our firm will work to help you, contact us today.

Questions to Ask Yourself During the Florida Foreclosure Process

The foreclosure defense process can be complex, but it’s important that you know your rights. If you are facing foreclosure, we recommend asking yourself these questions:

  • What should your next steps be?
  • What rights do you have as the homeowner during this process?
  • Are you willing to talk to a foreclosure defense attorney who actually sues the mortgage companies and even their attorneys when they cross the line?
  • Would you be interested in finding out how to protect your home?

At The Dellutri Law Group, PA, we like to say we provide hope to those who have lost it. These questions, and many others will all be answered for you when you come and see a foreclosure defense lawyer for a complimentary strategy session.

The most important part of the foreclosure process is to NOT IGNORE IT. As easy as it may seem to pretend nothing is happening, doing so can lead to serious consequences. We want to get you on the road to not only a fresh start but also financial freedom.

Often, our Florida foreclosure attorneys find that people ignore what they could have fought because they think they can just go out and purchase a cheaper home within their means. While we think living within your means is ideal, that is not a very solid plan when it comes to strategizing your best move regarding a foreclosure. Defaulting on a loan will hurt your credit score, rendering it tough to get another loan. It's not impossible, but it will take some time to rebuild.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q:Can an attorney stop a foreclosure?

    A:Yes, an attorney can stop a foreclosure, even in circumstances where you may not think one can. For this reason, it’s always a good idea to speak to an attorney when faced with a foreclosure, no matter what. A few routes you may take with an attorney are reinstating the loan, filing for bankruptcy, and redeeming the property.

  • Q:Do I need a foreclosure attorney?

    A:Foreclosure is a big deal. There is a lot on the line, and there is a lot to navigate. Naturally, we’re going to recommend legal assistance in all circumstances. It is very important that you not ignore an impending foreclosure and form a strong plan of action with an attorney so that you can come out on top.

  • Q:How long does the average foreclosure process take?

    A:The average foreclosure process in Florida takes between 4 and 6 months to complete. However, your foreclosure may be shorter than that or take over a year. It’s really going to depend on the details of your case.

  • Q:What is involved in the foreclosure process?

    A:The foreclosure process starts when the borrower begins missing payments. After 120, lenders can issue a notice of default and file the Summons and Complaint.

The next steps include motion for summary judgment, foreclosure trial, foreclosure sale and a deficiency judgement.
