Loan Modification May Be Viable Form Of Foreclosure Defense

On behalf of Licatesi Law Group, LLP posted in foreclosure defense on Wednesday, January 4, 2017.

Being at risk of losing a home can be a substantial weight on an individual’s shoulders. Foreclosure affects many people, and often, these individuals are uncertain about what options they may have for foreclosure defense. Parties who are facing such a predicament may wish to gain more information on viable prevention paths.

One way in which New York residents could potentially stop foreclosure is to seek a loan modification. This type of modification allows for a homeowner to negotiate with the mortgage lender in hopes of gaining a more manageable monthly payment and revise other terms of the agreement. This action could have various positive impacts on a situation that could allow individuals to potentially get back on the right track with their mortgage.

If individuals are successful with gaining a modification, they may see their interest rates lowered, reduction of penalties and fees and other benefits. Of course, some individuals may feel unsure as to how they should go about seeking such a modification. In these cases, considering legal assistance may be prudent. Taking action may be able to help individuals save their homes.

If New York residents feel that there is no stopping a foreclosure, information on foreclosure defense strategies may save them from a very difficult loss. Experienced attorneys can offer guidance relating to loan modifications and other options that could suit particular circumstances. Therefore, interested individuals may wish to closely assess their specific circumstances and determine whether speaking with an attorney in hopes of saving their homes could be in their best interests.
