Fort Myers Foreclosure Lawyer
Helping Clients Protect Their Homes From Their Mortgage Lenders
If your mortgage lender is threatening to foreclose on your home, it is important to take immediate steps to understand your rights and pursue the best possible outcome. Taking the wrong steps, or failing to act until it is too late, could have disastrous consequences.
At Kuhn Law Firm, P.A., we are committed to helping homeowners fight foreclosure. Fort Myers foreclosure lawyer Scott A. Kuhn, who has been practicing real estate law in Florida since 2002, can help you explore all of your options, which may include the following:
- Foreclosure defense: Before your lender can foreclose on your home, it must sue you for defaulting on your loan. Our firm can defend you against this lawsuit. We will hold the bank accountable for proving its case, and we will carefully investigate whether there is any evidence of abuses such as Truth in Lending Act violations and the use of robo-signers.
- Mortgage modification: The government has created incentives for banks to modify mortgages so that more homeowners can keep their homes. However, many banks are hard to negotiate with and may process foreclosures at the same time they are claiming to negotiate. We can help you navigate the mortgage modification process at your bank.
- Short sales and deeds in lieu: If it turns out that there is no way for you to keep your home, we may still be able to help you avoid a foreclosure by negotiating a short sale, in which the bank allows you to sell the property for less than you owe on your loan, or a deed in lieu of foreclosure, in which you voluntarily give up your home to the bank.
- Our firm represents clients who are at risk of losing their primary residences as well as second homes and investment properties to foreclosure. We also help clients who have been foreclosed upon defend themselves against deficiency judgment collection actions.
