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.

Real Estate Closings
Are you planning to close your home and need legal assistance? Our experience in real estate law gives us the credibility to assist in your home’s closing whether you are the purchaser or the lender.
Your home is one of the most important assets you own and handling the purchase or selling of your home should be handled with attention to detail. When you are in the process of buying or selling property, getting the help of an attorney can help you to avoid many legal issues that can arise with your closing. In a real estate transaction, closing is the final exchange between seller and buyer. Once an offer has been accepted by the seller there is a final agreement and a set closing date. On the closing date the property is transferred from seller to buyer, and the buyer is then free to move in. We can help you by checking the title records, reviewing proposed contracts, preparing your title report and helping to coordinate the closing. This process usually takes a little over a month. If a buyer has already been pre-approved for a mortgage loan the process of paperwork takes a little less time. If the buyer is not pre-approved, it generally takes longer. There are other common issues which can further delay the process, but we have the experience to handle those issues quickly.
