TYPES OF CASES
TYPES OF CASES
Have you stopped making payments on your loan? Have you received a final demand letter from the bank demanding full payment of the outstanding balance of your loan? Have you been served with foreclosure papers?
Foreclosure is the process whereby the mortgage holder (i.e. the bank) sues the borrower (i.e. homeowner) to secure title to the property in partial or full satisfaction of the outstanding balance of the mortgage holder’s note when the borrower has violated and failed to cure the material term(s) of the note, mortgage and loan agreement. The most common uncured, mortgage violation default is the non-payment of the outstanding loan debt.
