record numbers of foreclosures. In spite of how behind you are on your mortgage payments, foreclosure may be avoidable. Contingent on an individual’s situation, there are a variety of possible solutions that the Bouis Law Firm may be able to pursue on your behalf. Some of these foreclosure solutions are as follows:

  • Negotiating a private payment plan with the bank or mortgage company—this is often called forbearance or loan modification agreements. In this situation, the lender will modify an existing loan in an attempt to help the homeowner in a time of financial hardship— basically making the loan affordable for the long term.
  • A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the earnings from the sale fall short of the balance owed on a loan. Frequently, a bank will allow a short sale if they believe that it will result in a smaller financial loss than proceeding with foreclosure.
  • Litigating the foreclosure with the expectations that the lender has made a legal misstep and the court will stop the foreclosure. In rare cases, the mortgage company may have violated specific Federal laws. In which the court may assess damages to you.
  • We will investigate whether you qualify for any Federal or Public Assistance. In some regions there are charitable foundations and Public Agencies which help people in foreclosure.
