We Fight Delay and Make Them Pay
We are skilled at avoiding the delays in lender foreclosures that can be so damaging to your bottom line. We understand the problems caused when borrowers use stalling tactics to delay a foreclosure sale. We fight to minimize the risks that can occur when:
Mortgage holders who are in default destroy the property
Vacant properties are vandalized
Additional judgments, liens and unpaid property taxes make it difficult to clear title to the property
Lenders can't sell the property and recover the money they are owed
At Levey Filler, we are proud of our success in fighting delay. We move quickly and get properties to the foreclosure sale as soon as possible. We take pride in maintaining our goal to always seek to act on the same day we receive a new matter and when working on projects in a pending matter.
The Mortgage Foreclosure Process in Florida
Unlike some other states, lender foreclosures in Florida are court actions. You must file a lawsuit in court. Because mortgage foreclosures must be completed in court, you should consider the benefits of working with an experienced foreclosure attorney. Errors in the pleadings, failure to properly serve or publish notices and other mistakes can affect your ability to obtain title to the property and get it sold. We take pride in our success in seeking to avoid the various technical errors which can cause delay.
Foreclosure sales in Florida typically take place 30 to 60 days after judgment is entered. We work with real estate brokers who specialize in selling foreclosed properties, to help you sell the property after you take title.
Mortgage Workouts and Loan Modifications
Because of decreased real estate values in Florida, it is sometimes impossible for a bank to recover the full amount of an unpaid mortgage through lender foreclosure. In some circumstances, it may be in a lender's best interest to work with the mortgagee to rewrite the loan. If you are a lender looking for alternatives to foreclosure, we can assist you with workouts, loan modifications, shorts sales and obtaining deeds in lieu of foreclosure.
