Foreclosure defense strategies

Christopher G. Winans, P.C. fights banks to protect your home from wrongful foreclosure by challenging the legality of the proceedings. If necessary, our attorney can help you file a Chapter 13 petition to stop the foreclosure action.

Mortgage modification

If your home has dropped in value to below your outstanding loan amount or you no longer can afford your monthly payments under your current mortgage, you may be eligible for a loan modification. Christopher G. Winans, P.C. negotiates with the bank to have the terms of the original loan permanently changed to reduce payments to an amount you can afford.

Loan forbearance

Forbearance gives you a temporary reprieve from making payments on your loan while your lender agrees not to foreclose on your home during the forbearance period. The arrangement can give you a much-needed break if you have fallen behind in your payments.

Short sale

During the real estate bubble, many homes were overvalued and mortgages issued that reflected the inflated prices. Home values plummeted when the bubble burst, and now many homeowners owe more on their properties than those properties are currently worth. With no equity in their properties, these homeowners have found themselves stuck in a cycle of debt from which they cannot extricate themselves. A short sale allows you to sell your home for less than the amount you owe on the loan. The bank avoids the expense and time involved in foreclosure, and you can walk away from the oppressive debt.

Deed in lieu of foreclosure

Much like a short sale, a deed in lieu of foreclosure allows you to relinquish your interest in your home for the amount of the loan by exchanging your deed for the loan cancellation. Christopher G. Winans, P.C. aggressively negotiates with your lender and meticulously prepares the agreement to ensure you do not lose your home and still remain saddled with the loan, but instead are truly relieved of the debt.
