Definition of Foreclosure
When your mortgage company repossesses your home, this event is known as foreclosure. This unfortunate situation arises if you have defaulted on your loans, meaning you have been unable to make the required payments to the mortgage company.
What many people do not realize is that, even if they have already received a foreclosure notice, they can still avoid losing their homes. To do so, you will need a knowledgeable lawyer to help you make a realistic plan as soon as possible.
The Consequences of Foreclosure
Some of our clients believe foreclosure could allow them to escape debt with minimal consequences. They ask us if giving up their home could help them start a new life. In reality, foreclosure has many short-term and long-term consequences that will hinder your ability to obtain a home in the future.
Some of the repercussions of foreclosure include:
- Eviction from your home, which means you will forfeit both the property and any established equity
- Long-term credit damage, negatively affecting your ability to get credit, a new mortgage, and even a new job for several years following foreclosure
- The anxiety and stress of never knowing when you will have to vacate yourself and your family, or where you will live next
Once you have been given a foreclosure notice, there is still time to fight the eviction process. You may be surprised to learn that your mortgage company would prefer not to foreclose your home, because the process is not only time-consuming and complicated on their end, but also extremely expensive.
As such, most mortgage companies are more than willing to attempt to resolve the default issues, but homeowners are simply unaware of how to reorganize their debt and repay their mortgage. This is why you must take action now, retaining the aid of an experienced lawyer who can help you gather your financial information and outline your plan of progressively paying off your debts.
