Steps to Stop Foreclosure

Acting Quickly Is the Key to Avoiding Foreclosure on Your Home

The economic downturn and the significant drop in prices in the Naples and Fort Myers real estate markets have forced many property owners to face the possibility of a mortgage foreclosure on their primary residences, second homes, and investment properties.

The key to avoiding foreclosure is acting quickly. Do not ignore the correspondence from your lender or, worse, ignore the problem all together. Instead, let The Law Office of Jursinski & Murphy help you prevent or stop foreclosure. .

Help from Our Foreclosure Law Firm

Obviously, the best way to avoid foreclosure is to continue making your monthly payments. If you can no longer make your monthly payments, our attorneys can work with your lender to make your mortgage payment more manageable:

  • Refinance
  • Forbearance
  • Loan modification

Another option to consider is a short sale. In a short sale, the proceeds of the sale of your home are insufficient to pay off the balance of the mortgage. The contract of sale must be presented to the lender for approval. We help homeowners navigate the short sale procedure.

If your lender files a foreclosure action, seek help from the attorneys at The Law Office of Kevin F. Jursinski & Asscoiates. We file a motion to compel mediation as the homeowner’s first step in the mortgage foreclosure action.

The motion to compel mediation allows the homeowner to assert before the court that he or she is making a good faith effort to speak with the lender. Going to mediation gives the homeowner the opportunity to actually speak to the lender to determine if there is any way to resolve the foreclosure.

Do not wait until it is too late. Contact us today about avoiding foreclosure on your primary residence, second home, or investment property.

Call 877.291.3926 to stop foreclosure.
