When times start getting tough, the last thing you want to lose is your home. Unfortunately, if your difficult situation causes you to fall behind or "default" on your mortgage, your lender could repossess your home in a process called foreclosure.

If you are facing a foreclosure in the Sarasota or Bradenton areas, it is important to contact the foreclosure defense lawyer at Syprett, Meshad, Resnick & Lieb as quickly as possible by completing the form on this page or calling 941-365-7171.

Understanding the Foreclosure Process

When you default on your mortgage payments, your lender will start sending letters to collect the debt. Eventually, the lender may send a notice of foreclosure. When this happens, you house is not immediately repossessed; you still have the opportunity to negotiate options with your lender. Foreclosure negotiations can be complicated and confusing. Your chances of reaching an optimal solution are greatly increased with the assistance of a skilled foreclosure defense attorney. When negotiating on your behalf, an experienced lawyer can help establish options, such as a debt settlement, loan modification or a short sale instead of foreclosure.
