Have You Received a Notice of Foreclosure?
Your lender can start the foreclosure process if you have been late on multiple mortgage payments. During the foreclosure process, the lender takes the property and sells it at auction to pay off the remainder of the loan. Although foreclosure does not happen immediately after one missed payment, the bank or lender can quickly seize the property to sell and force the occupants out.
If you have recently received a notice of eviction or foreclosure, then contact our Riverside team right away so we can provide you with the information you need to protect your home and save your investment.
Using Bankruptcy to Stop Foreclosure
One possible solution to protect your home from foreclosure is filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. When you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, an automatic stay is placed on all your accounts that stop all collection and foreclosure attempts. Even if you have already received an eviction notice, you can remain in your home if you are issued an automatic stay. The lender or bank will have to lift the stay in order to resume foreclosure, but filing a bankruptcy petition can give you enough time to regain control of some of your finances.
Other Foreclosure Defense Options
Aside from bankruptcy, homeowners also have the following options if they are facing foreclosure:
- Loan Modification: This includes changing the terms of your loan by negotiating to reduce your interest rate, the loan's principal, or eliminating late fees/penalties.
- Refinancing: This involves forgiving a portion of your debt and refinancing the rest into a new loan.
- Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure: This gives ownership of your property to the lender in exchange for being relieved of your debt.
