  • Our foreclosure defense lawyer at Legal Counsel, P.A. can review the documentation the lender is providing to the court to determine whether it is valid.

If the bank doesn’t have proper documentation to support the foreclosure, the bank may not be able to foreclose on your home. There are other legal defenses to foreclosure available as well. If the bank made errors in crediting your payments or failed to send your proper notice of default, you may also be able to fight the foreclosure. Finally, if you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may also be able to put a stay on your foreclosure.

  • Residential Foreclosure Defense in Orlando, Florida: Residential homeowners who cannot pay their mortgage may have many options when it comes to preventing foreclosure. If you are facing foreclosure of your home, and have a government-backed loan, you may have additional rights and options to preventing foreclosure in Orlando, Florida. For example, loans like VA loans, USDA loans, or FHA loans may have additional requirements of the lender to offer individuals loan modification options. Even if you do not have a government-backed loan, residential mortgage borrowers may be able to work with their bank to either refinance the mortgage or to seek a loan modification. In some cases, you can sell your home or go through a short sale to avoid foreclosure. If you are facing residential foreclosure, you may also have rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  Finally, Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a residential foreclosure defense lawyer in Orlando, Florida who can either help you negotiate with your bank to prevent foreclosure or fight your foreclosure in court.  We can review your situation to see whether there may be alternatives available to you, such as a short sale, bankruptcy, or loan modification.  If the foreclosure legal process has already begun, Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a residential foreclosure defense lawyer in Orlando, Florida who may be able to build a defense against the lender if the documentation supporting the foreclosure is not there.

Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a short sale and debt settlement lawyer in Orlando, Florida who may be able to assist you.
