If you need an attorney for settlement, negotiation, For Sale by Owner transactions or litigation (mechanics’ liens, confession of judgment, partition, landlord tenant, foreclosure defense, ejectment, quiet title, breach of contract, contract litigation, seller disclosure fraud, home inspection cases, realtor negligence cases, amongst others).
It is critical that you defend the foreclosure litigation immediately, even if you may be endeavoring to achieve a short sale or work out some other agreement with the lender. Failure to respond accordingly will lead to a default judgment being taken against you, thereby making the prospect of resolving the situation amicably far more challenging. The failure to answer the complaint in foreclosure will be viewed by a court as an admission of the truth of all of the bank’s averments, some of which may not be entirely accurate. Finally, assuming that a court will simply permit the borrower to open that judgment and have a second bite at the apple, if you will, is a highly risky assumption.
