Receiving a notice of foreclosure is a homeowner's greatest fear. Fortunately, there are remedies to avoid foreclosure. Restructuring the mortgage through the lender can lower your monthly payment, which is the easiest remedy. If restructuring is insufficient to stop foreclosure, you may need an attorney to challenge the lending institution's right to foreclosure.
GetLegal's Attorney Directory can put you in touch with lawyers in your area who can challenge your lender's right to foreclose on your property.
How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
