If there is enough payments missed, or a person falls far behind on their mortgage payments, the home lender can begin the legal process which is called a foreclosure. The home lender will most likely give 30 days for the person to bring their current debts back to normal. After that the bank will move forward with the action if it is not paid back. Before the bank is able to move forward with the proceedings, it is important to hire an attorney who will represent you in this case. It is especially important if you know you cannot pay back the debts that you owe.
One of the most important reasons for hiring an attorney is simple, it is a complicated process with lots of rules and procedures.An attorney can give you options for the foreclosure and give you advice on how to proceed. Even if you think you are in too big of debt to save your home, do not give up hope, an experienced Baltimore lawyer can help you keep your home.
How can an attorney help you? There are a number of ways that an attorney can help people in debt, the first is through loss mitigation. There are certain types of loans that allow special programs to bring the balance of the debt into good standing. Lenders can be very sneaky and unhelpful when it comes to these programs, and may not inform you, so it is important to have an attorney who can find ways around their rules.
Attorneys can also help you modify your loan. This will modify the agreement between the borrower and the lender, that changes the original terms of the loan. This type of modification could lower the interest rate or even extend the amortization term. Make sure the attorney checks to confirm that there are no hidden fees associated with the new offer, and this modification is in your best interest.
