Fear of the unknown adds pressure to any stressful situation – same is true for homeowners facing foreclosure. Everyone has heard horror stories of dealing with mortgage lenders and homes being foreclosed without the borrower being aware. Situations in which the homeowners are evicted from their home and unprepared can be avoided with a foreclosure defense attorney representing your case.
In Florida, the foreclosure system is judicial, meaning that the lenders have to file the foreclosure through the court system and the homeowner has a right to have an attorney defending his or her interest. Going through the courts also means that the lender has an obligation to give proper notification of their next move, which may not be fully understood by the average person, but another attorney will know how to proceed and prepare. Our attorneys at Graham Legal always advise clients of any motions or hearings that may have a significant outcome, allowing everyone time to prepare emotionally and financially.
Having someone monitor your case and providing insight throughout the duration of the foreclosure process will provide you with the peace of mind necessary to focus on adjusting your financial situation, health, and family. Foreclosure is difficult, but it shouldn’t take over your life and it doesn’t need to keep you from resting at night. A foreclosure defense attorney takes the guesswork out of the equation and can provide an approximate timeframe.
