There Are Alternatives!

Almost everybody feels overwhelmed when facing foreclosure on their home. This is usually the issue they face at the end of a long road of financial worries and hardships that have led them to their situation. Foreclosure can sometimes seem inevitable, unavoidable, and inescapable. This just isn’t the case! That is, not to say it will be simple. Defenses to foreclosure are complex and sometimes exceedingly technical. Russo and Rieke, LLC attorneys will provide you with the expert guidance and legal options you need to explore all the potential ways available to stop foreclosure and hold onto your home.

For instance, our lawyers will examine your loan documents for any mistakes as well as any mistakes in process or notification relative to the foreclosure. They will also examine any loan modifications or assignments to ensure they were done correctly and that the company seeking foreclosure has appropriately filed and has the right to foreclose. In addition, they will ensure the lender has complied with the Truth in Lending Act, 15 U.S.C. 1602. Under this Act, lenders must make cost and payment disclosures in the loan documents at specific times in the loan process. All of these actions and more can lead to an effective defense against a foreclosure action.

By getting together with your lawyer and reviewing your individual situation, you will be able to use your lawyer’s counsel to decide what the best defense is in your particular situation. We will help you understand your finances and potential root causes for your situation, including assistance with managing unsecured debt and potential bankruptcy. By understanding the process and all the ramifications for you and your family, you can begin to deal with the foreclosure process with your Russo and Rieke lawyer right alongside.
