A trustee sale foreclosure is a nonjudicial foreclosure. Unlike a judicial foreclosure, it does not involve the lender filing a lawsuit against the homeowner. It is the most commonly used type of foreclosure and it tends to be very effective. Still, it can be fought.
If you are the target of this type of foreclosure, a foreclosure defense attorney can help you. At Garland Griffiths Knaupp, Attorneys, we will protect your rights and interests throughout the trustee sale foreclosure process in Portland, Oregon.
Protecting You Throughout The Process
A trustee sale foreclosure must follow strict rules to be enforceable. First, proper notice must be given to the homeowner and junior lien holders. The notice must contain a number of details required by law.
The majority of lenders enlist large foreclosure processing firms to handle trustee sale foreclosures. At these firms, documents are typically drafted by paralegals and the process is overseen by lawyers. While most foreclosures are performed properly, mistakes can be made. If the rules are not followed, we can help you file a legal challenge prior to the date of the sale or within 48 hours of the sale to preserve your legal title.
We will carefully review your case to determine whether the trustee sale should be challenged legally. In some cases, it may be more appropriate to attempt negotiation with the lender to pursue a better outcome for you during the foreclosure process. Count on our experience to help you find the best option depending on your situation.
