The Florida courts have focused on moving cases out of the court system to ease the existing backlog. Thus, it’s big news that the Fourth Florida District Court of Appeals reversed and remanded a Port St. Lucie case, Bruce L. Blum, Appellant vs. Deutsche Bank Trust Company, Americas as Trustee, in which the bank failed to correctly deliver the notice of default to the defendant, the homeowner.
The attorney for the homeowner argued that the bank failed to comply with the terms of the mortgage by delivering the default notice to a post office box, instead of to the property address. The bank defended itself by stating that the home was vacant at the time the notice was sent, however, the mortgage and note stated the property address as the official address. The 4th DCA sided with the homeowner and remanded the case to the trial court for dismissal.
This is an example of why it’s essential to choose a good attorney to handle your foreclosure. Just because the bank has filed foreclosure, it doesn’t mean that your options are over. What is important is for you to find a dependable and experienced Miami foreclosure defense attorney that will take the time to meticulously study your case and defend you accordingly.
