Lawyers Experienced With Home Loan Workouts

If your mortgage is in arrears and you're facing a real threat of foreclosure, your best option will depend on how much you want to keep your house and how much equity you have in it. If you have no equity, the best alternative might be a deed in lieu of foreclosure. You basically surrender possession of the property to the mortgage lender and walk away from any deficiency between the mortgage balance and the value of the property.

If you have equity worth protecting, you'll have a substantial interest in preventing foreclosure. For many people, Chapter 13 bankruptcy will prevent or interrupt a foreclosure while giving you the chance to spread out repayment of past-due mortgage obligations over a period of up to five years. It also gives you the chance to erase the value of second or third mortgages and home equity loans while keeping your house.

If your mortgage is in trouble, you can't get legal advice too soon, whether or not you're seriously considering bankruptcy. The longer you wait to get an experienced attorney's advice, the more likely it is that you're losing valuable options as time goes by.
