Consider All Your Legal Options

Banks and mortgage companies have attorneys that look out for their best interests. It is just as important for you to have representation as well. A skilled lawyer can help you understand which options to foreclosure may be available to you in Florida, including:

  • Mediation — Legal disputes are kept out of court by resolving them through a mediator, avoiding the costs associated with lengthy litigation.
  • Short sale The mortgage company agrees to take a lesser amount than originally owed on the property.
  • Loan modificationLender makes permanent changes to an existing mortgage such as reducing the mortgage rate, or extending the due date to make the payments more affordable.
  • Deed in lieu of foreclosure The lender accepts the deed to the home upfront, rather than receiving it in foreclosure, thereby saving time and expense.
