A homeowner does not necessarily have to lose their home when faced with foreclosure – there are other options. No matter what the situation, an attorney can help a homeowner make the right choices. With the right knowledge and experience, an attorney can assist at any stage in a foreclosure case. The help an attorney can provide includes examining all documents related to the homeowner’s case, offering information regarding options and pursuing that option, handling all communication with the lender, protecting your homeowner rights in and out of court, negotiating to modify your mortgage, staying foreclosure proceedings and challenging the validity of a foreclosure action.
