Mortgage foreclosures and modifications

The Law Office of Peter A. Hurwitz, PLLC has a proven track record of representing and assisting homeowners who have fallen behind in their mortgage payments and must defend against a foreclosure lawsuit brought by their mortgage company. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation where you are experiencing a change of circumstances, such as a decrease in income due loss or illness, or an increase in expenses making you unable to pay your monthly mortgage obligation, contact Mr. Hurwitz who is experienced in defending against foreclosure actions and he will provide you with the most reasonable options available in finding a solution. These options include:

  • Defending against the foreclosure action to keep you in your home as long as possible and fighting hard to have the foreclosure case dismissed due to possible defenses, such as lack of standing by the foreclosing bank, if applicable. Mr. Hurwitz is very effective in defending against foreclosure proceedings and has been successful in proving that, in some cases, the mortgage companies have failed to possess the proper documentation necessary to bring the foreclosure action and/or the mortgage itself contains unconscionable terms. In addition, to those on active military duty, an adjournment of the foreclosure action is available under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act.
  • Seeking a mortgage loan modification by negotiating with your lender to make your mortgage loan payment more affordable. We will attempt to obtain a lower mortgage interest rate, reduced loan balance, and waiver of interest and fees, if possible.
  • Negotiating with your bank for a “short sale” agreement allowing you to sell your house for less than what is owed on the mortgage, if possible, thereby avoiding a foreclosure sale by your mortgage company.

Mr. Hurwitz will fight hard to stop the aggressive collection tactics of your mortgage loan servicer and use all means possible to keep you in your home, and fight for your rights as a homeowner.
