Fighting Foreclosure When You Got a Bad Loan
If your foreclosure is due to your inability to make payments on on a bad loan, you’re not alone. Thousands of people obtained bad loans and have successfully fought banks to keep their home. However, you must resist your first instincts to fight the foreclosure lawsuit alone. Doing so may waste valuable time to taking appropriate action and possibly serve to “waive” valuable defenses. Our Chicago based foreclosure defense lawyers can help you take effective action.
Arguing with the Lender
Arguing with your lender is not a solution and will only postpone the correct foreclosure defense steps. The lender you have a loan with will have a lot of leverage over you and, unless you’re a lawyer yourself, it’s going to be hard to differentiate empty—but intimidating—threats that they may make from legitimate actions they could take against you.
Producing The “Note” Myth
While there is some truth to the notion that, if a bank cannot find the promissory note it can prevent them from foreclosing. (The note in essence gives them “ownership” of your home) They will eventually find it, or will make arguments to a court to give them a judgment with only a copy. This move may buy you some time, but you should not solely rely upon it to save you from being foreclosed upon.
Have a Foreclosure Defense Attorney Look at the Matter
A foreclosure defense lawyer can explore all possible defenses and check to see if there was deception or another violations of state or federal laws in the way that your original loan was written. Recently a class action mortgage lawsuit was settled by Bank of America for improprieties in their lending practices. You will want to make sure that the lawyer you are working with is straightforward with you. (Be wary if a lawyer just says that they can help without looking at your situation first.) If you cannot afford your house or property, then other options should be explored (e.g., loan modification or short sale). Remember that there are bad lenders out there who gave good people terrible loans. We can help you fight a foreclosure if your home is being taken away from you without just cause.
