Foreclosure Attorney Stuart
Stuart foreclosure lawyers dedicated to resolving foreclosure issues for owners, lenders and buyers
In 2018, Florida’s overall foreclosure rate started climbing again, and Florida still ranks sixth nationwide in foreclosed properties. As a judicial foreclosure law state, the parties on either side of a mortgage face significant challenges when resolving these complex situations. The Stuart foreclosure attorneys at Woodward, Kelley, Fulton & Kaplan have the detailed legal knowledge required to help clients on the Treasure Coast and throughout South Florida make vital decisions and resolve their foreclosure issues.
Owners, buyers and lenders face different challenges within the foreclosure market
The foreclosure attorneys at Woodward, Kelley, Fulton & Kaplan have extensive understanding of the state and federal laws pertaining to foreclosure. We understand all sides of foreclosure issues, and can help any type of client achieve the most advantageous solutions. Whether you are a property owner hoping to turn to bankruptcy law to save your home, a lender who needs to reduce losses or a new home buyer who wants to take advantage of lower housing prices, we can provide the legal support you need in the following ways:
- Property owners facing foreclosure have to decide whether to try to keep their property or whether it is time to walk away. While some modification programs may allow you to keep the property, owners need to be employed and meet other qualifications to help ensure they have a good chance at success under new mortgage terms. A skilled foreclosure lawyer at our firm helps owners explore all available options for retaining their property — or the best ways to walk away.
- Property buyers may see an opportunity to buy property they could not buy when prices and interest rates were higher. However, lenders now impose strict requirements before granting credit, even if a purchase means they can get properties off their overloaded foreclosed property inventories. Our attorneys can help potential buyers assess their financial qualifications and help ensure they have the documentation available to present a compelling case to lenders.
- In recent years, Florida homeowners have agreed to surrender their homes in bankruptcy to get a discharge of their mortgage debt. As of October 1, 2018, the new law prevents homeowners from fighting a foreclosure after agreeing in a bankruptcy to give up the property to the lender.
- Lenders require appropriate evidence to justify foreclosures in court. They may also need assistance identifying new low-risk buyers to help deplete their inventories of foreclosed properties. Our lawyers have the experience to effectively represent lenders in court, and we can help them find buyers with the financial means to warrant the issuance of new loans.
