The truth is that people facing a foreclosure suit do not always need an attorney to defend their case. However, it is always a good idea to get the expert opinion of a foreclosure defense attorney. The great news is that a consultation with the experts here, at Graham Legal, is always free. We are in the business of defending foreclosure cases ethically, because everyone deserves to have their rights represented, and we will also advise homeowners of their best options every time.
This particular case had recently been filed by the condominium’s association. Considering that this homeowner wanted to keep his home and the suit was at a very early stage, we suggested that he contact the attorney representing the association and discuss options to bring his payments current and settle the lawsuit. We also suggested that he use the money that he would spend on hiring an attorney and apply it towards bringing his payments current.
We did caution, however, that if the association’s attorneys were uncooperative that then they should call us back immediately. Also, we suggested that they keep detailed records of all conversations and get all agreements in writing.
After a few weeks we followed up with this homeowner, to confirm that they were able to settle and didn’t need our help with any legal matter involving their home. Luckily, they were able to come to an agreement with the association, and everything worked out smoothly without getting involved in a lawsuit.
At Graham Legal, we’re here to help you with any foreclosure matters you may have. Sometimes legal representation is not necessary. It’s always a good idea to take advantage of a free consultation with a foreclosure defense attorney. We welcome you to call and schedule with Graham Legal.
