Residential Foreclosure Defense and Workouts

Like all too many Floridians in difficult economic circumstances, Florida homeowners may be at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure. If you are behind on your mortgage payments, your lender can declare a default and force the sale of the home. Lenders do not like foreclosures, because they are costly and difficult. But they do not hesitate to foreclose on past due loans if they are not given better options.
