People threatened with foreclosure often feel cornered. They do not know where to turn. When they turn to us, they are often surprised when we educate them about the options available. At Garland Griffiths Knaupp, Attorneys, we have successfully employed a variety of foreclosure defense strategies in Washington County, Oregon, to help people like you.
Strategy No. 1: The Negotiated Settlement
In many cases, staying in the home simply does not make sense for economic reasons. However, that does not mean that you should let the foreclosure move forward. It is important to protect yourself from liability. Our lawyers will strive to negotiate a settlement of the foreclosure that protects you from liability and ensures that the lender cannot come after you at a later date for the remainder of your debt.
Depending on the situation, it may be appropriate for us to use negotiation strategies to keep you in your house for an additional amount of time, either to allow you extra time to find a new home or to pursue a short sale.
On average, we can negotiate a settlement of a judicial foreclosure case for $600-$800.
Strategy No. 2: Fight The Foreclosure
Perhaps you are looking for true foreclosure defense. You want to stop the foreclosure. You want to stay in your home. Our experience means we can quickly identify opportunities to achieve this goal. We will review for legal violations on the part of the lender. Perhaps the lender has not followed the rules. Perhaps the lender does not even have the authority to foreclose. We are prepared to aggressively challenge foreclosures when appropriate.
