Mortgage Foreclosure Help

FORECLOSURE PREVENTION AND DEFENSE

WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY SAVED HUNDREDS OF HOMES FOR CLIENTS IN SOUTH FLORIDA

If you are in South Florida and are behind on your mortgage, are at risk for a mortgage foreclosure or are currently the subject of foreclosure, we offer cost-effective representation that can allow you to leverage the laws and make sure your rights are respected so you achieve a reasonable result.

There are many rumors and a great deal of misinformation circulating which makes it extremely difficult for consumers to have a clear picture of what is going on and where they fit in. Making good decisions is  challenging with inaccurate information. When the appointment is over, you will have the tools to make decisions that make the most sense for you and your family.

Once you are armed with real facts, our objective is to work with you to find a way to achieve YOUR PREFERRED SOLUTION. Our clients want more than just to stall, and we can help them to get more. If your goal is to SAVE YOUR HOME, we work to find a SOLUTION based on the particular facts and issues of your case geared to find the leverage you need to assist in saving your home. A short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure do just the opposite – they help you to LOSE your home. And, the way things work today, you could still have a deficiency judgment exposure. So, a short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure do not get you any closer to a solution, unless properly negotiated so that at least the risk of deficiency is gone.

If you are frustrated and do not know what to do next or where to turn, we can help. We will analyze your situation and tell you what alternatives we see. We will answer any questions you have, and when the appointment is over, you will clearly understand the landscape and your options.

LOAN ACCOUNTING ERRORS AND WRONGFUL CHARGES

It happens more frequently than most would expect, and far too often. Banks and mortgage servicers can, and do, regularly make serious mistakes when handling customers’ accounts. Frequently, when the borrower asks the bank or mortgage servicer to correct these mistakes, they are given the runaround by an inflexible and non-responsive bureaucracy. Often, frustrated borrowers give up and pay money they don’t owe simply to protect their home.

 

Sometimes the borrower cannot afford to pay or refuses to give in. This can result in a foreclosure lawsuit being filed, placing the borrower at great risk of losing his or her home simply because their mortgage company mishandled their payments. Even worse, there is growing evidence that these errors may not be accidents. Mortgage servicers are able to profit from mishandling borrowers’ accounts, and mortgage companies’ “mistakes” rarely, if ever, benefit the borrower, almost always favoring the bank or mortgage servicer.

If you believe your mortgage company has taken incorrect action regarding your loan or has added improper charges to your account, you may be correct.

She is personally involved in every case and treats each one as if it were her own. She is based in Broward County, Florida.

Attorney Golant is one of a very small, elite group of attorneys in the U.S. who is truly knowledgeable about foreclosure law, foreclosure defense litigation and mortgage-related litigation in civil and bankruptcy court.

Because of her work on behalf of Florida's borrowers and consumers, she was awarded the honor of Consumer Protection Attorney of the Year by the Consumer Protection Law Committee of the Florida Bar.

She is a former judge, and her experience has provided her with a unique and valuable perspective in the view from the Bench.
