  • Charging more interest or fees to a borrowing after putting them in a lower credit bracket than they deserve

  • Failing to inform the borrower of the loan's terms and conditions

  • Asking disproportionately high fees or interest rate

  • Charging insurance that will pay of the loan if the borrower dies, called single-premium credit insurance

  • Concealing fees or interest by packing them or using balloon payments

While many mortgage lenders are helpful, some will treat you unfairly so that they make profit.

    What is the Foreclosure Process?
    Assistance From Our Foreclosure Defense Lawyers

    If you are beginning to gall behind on your mortgage payments, then your properly may be seized and sold by the lender. This process is called foreclosure. The lender usually allows three to six months of missed payments before the foreclosure process takes into effect.

    If they have not yet initiated the process, then our experienced Foreclosure Defense Lawyers may be able to defend you. Some of the effective strategies to prevent foreclosure is as follows:

    Loan Modification. Loan modification allows home owners to change the term of their loan by cutting interest rates, reducing the loan's balance, or extending the loan terms.

    In many cases, a skilled foreclosure lawyer can work with the bank or other mortgage lender to negotiate a modification of the loan terms. The goal of a loan modification is to reduce the amount of the monthly mortgage payments to a level that the borrower can afford. This may be done by cutting the interest rate, by extending the loan terms or even by reducing the outstanding balance of the loan.

    Deed in Lieu. This gives home owners the option of handing over the deed of their house in exchange for debt forgiveness.

    For many people who are anxious to avoid foreclosure yet prefer to let go of the home and make a fresh start elsewhere, the best solution is known as deed in lieu of foreclosure. In deed in lieu, you surrender the deed to the bank in exchange for being forgiven the remaining loan balance. A deed in lieu is only possible with the consent of the lender.

    Bankruptcy. The process of bankruptcy may enable you to discharge other debts which would free up assets to pay for the mortgage.

    If you are determined to keep your home but cannot afford a monthly payment while also trying to pay off other debts, declaring under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 may be the answer for you. Bankruptcy will not get rid of mortgage debt but it will free up your income by wiping out most or all of your other debts. Further, the automatic  stay issued at the beginning of the process will prohibit the lender from moving forward with foreclosure.

  • Once you decide to sign the loan, do not falsify your information, no  matter what the lender tells you! Make sure that the whole document is filled in and there are no blanks on the application. You should also consult with a real estate attorney. Our experienced attorneys can review your loan and contract to ensure that everything is correct and in your best interest.
