San Jose Foreclosure Defense Attorney
What can I do to protect my home from foreclosure?
There are several legal alternatives to foreclosure. What are your goals?
Do you want to keep your home or are you willing to walk away? Even if
you do not mind letting go of your real estate, do not simply let the
foreclosure occur. There are many consequences that foreclosure could
incur that another method may help you avoid.
Some of the possible alternatives to foreclosure include:
Short sale - In a short sale, the lender or bank accepts the proceeds of selling
the property instead of fulfillment of the loan, even if the sale price
is less than the loan balance. If you have questions about short sale
or sheriff's sale, contact The Law Offices of Jeffrey P. Widman.
Deed in lieu of foreclosure - This option allows you to exchange your property rights for the remainder
of the debt. In this manner, the debtor is able to trade in the property
and thus satisfy the defaulted loan. You could be able to walk away from
your home without debt and without the negative repercussions of foreclosure.
Negotiating with the lender - In today's challenging economy and its accompanying high rate of
foreclosures, many lenders are willing to negotiate with debtors on the
chance of at least collecting some debt. Negotiation may be an option
for you. Our
San Jose real estate & business litigation lawyer is a skilled negotiator. We can work with your lender to pursue more favorable
terms by restructuring the terms of your loan.
