What Is Foreclosure Defense?

Foreclosure defense involves a range of legal strategies aimed at helping protect homeowners who face losing their homes to foreclosure. It's not just about delaying the process; it's about examining the foreclosure process itself for any errors, rights violations, or possible defenses that could result in the homeowner retaining their property or negotiating a more favorable outcome.

An experienced foreclosure defense attorney, like ours, may be able to assist homeowners in numerous ways, including:

  • Reviewing the lender’s foreclosure notice
  • Negotiating with lenders
  • Identifying violations of federal and/or state mortgage servicing laws
  • Representing homeowners in court
  • Filing for bankruptcy if/when appropriate

Foreclosure defense can offer a lifeline to families who are struggling to stay in their homes. Our experienced lawyer is committed to exploring every possible avenue to defend your home against foreclosure.

Foreclosure Surplus Funds Recovery

After a foreclosure sale, there might be instances where the sale amount exceeds the debt owed. These extra funds are known as "foreclosure surplus funds." For example, let's say your home was foreclosed upon, and the bank sells it for $425,000. However, you only owe $415,000 between your mortgage debt and other fees. This means a surplus of $10,000 is left over after the sale.

If, at the time of the foreclosure, you were the record owner of the property, you may be entitled to claim these funds.

Recovering foreclosure surplus funds involves filing the necessary documents within specified timeframes. Though this may sound straightforward, it can be complex, and other parties may also have a claim to these surplus funds. Consequently, having legal representation is strongly encouraged.
