Do you need an attorney for Bankruptcy, a Foreclosure or a Loan Modification issue?
Contact us today. We can help.
We live in difficult economic times and the Riverside County community has been hit harder than many communities across the nation. Home mortgage defaults and foreclosures are increasing as good people fall further and further behind on their credit card payments and other bills.
If you find that you are not able to keep up with your growing debt load, bankruptcy may be an option for you. There are several types of bankruptcies, Chapters 13, 11 and 7 being common varieties, and if you want to see if you qualify for any of them, you should speak with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer to see if you qualify and if this is a smart choice for you.
Bankruptcy is not for everybody. For example, declaring bankruptcy may have a negative impact on your credit and effect your ability to rent an apartment. An experienced bankruptcy lawyer will address issues like this when you are deciding whether bankruptcy is right for you.
Foreclosures happen when a person is so far behind on their mortgage payments that the lender decides to take ownership of the property that is secured to the mortgage, often a home.
When a property is sold for less than is owed on the property, it's called a short sale. When a short sale occurs, the person who formerly owned the property could face negative tax consequences.
Lately, in this distressed economy, banks and other lenders have been more receptive than ever before to work with borrowers and change the terms of the original mortgage so that the debt does not go into default. This is commonly referred to as a loan modification and an experienced real estate attorney may be able to help you negotiate more favorable mortgage terms for you.
Whether your matter relates to a personal or business bankruptcy, or if you would like to speak with an attorney about a foreclosure, loan modification or short sale issue, you want to be sure you meet with a qualified lawyer who has the experience to help.
