Postponing Foreclosure Auctions
We have developed several strategies to postpone and/or cancel the auction date of our Client’s pending foreclosure, although the specific strategy for each case may be different. The avenues can be as easy as a phone or Email communication with the foreclosing bank/servicer’s legal counsel. We have longstanding working relationships with all the firms who practice in this area and typically deal with the same attorneys on all related matters in the foreclosure field.
The avenue could also entail legal action via an injunction/temporary restraining order through the court system to postpone the auction date. It is important to understand that Massachusetts is a non-judicial foreclosure state, meaning your Lender can foreclose without obtaining authorization from a court because your Lender can simply exercise its rights to foreclose directly through your mortgage contract if you have defaulted on the specific mortgage terms. This is important because you do not lose your rights to challenge the foreclosure, the bank’s title, or your right to lawfully continue to possess your Property even after a foreclosure has occurred.
It is a huge misconception that the banks have utilized to force unwary homeowners out of their homes. You maintain the LEGAL RIGHT to POSSESSION of your home EVEN AFTER foreclosure and do not have to vacate your home until you have your day in Court and a judgment is obtained against you. This is a reason that postponement is not always that crucial as you can still assert your rights after a foreclosure has occurred. McArdle Law will provide you with an in-depth analysis of this situation and what avenues are available in your particular case, whether pre or post-foreclosure.
Loan Modification Defense &
Loss Mitigation Options
If your loan qualifies as a “certain mortgage loan” as defined under Massachusetts law, you have a right to be properly considered for alternatives to foreclosure, such as loan modification. If you have made efforts to obtain a loan modification but are unsuccessful and a court determines that your treatment during the process was “fundamentally unfair”, which seems to happen all too often, that alone can be reason to invalidate a foreclosure and give you a renewed opportunity to keep your home.
We have qualified professionals who are dedicated to assist you in the loan modification process if the same has become overwhelming for you on your own. We also have a dedicated team of short sale specialists, who can assist you if your loan is underwater and you would like to take advantage of the opportunity to sell your house prior to foreclosure but otherwise could not because you owe more on your loan than your home is worth.
