Foreclosure Prevention in Connecticut

Are you at risk of losing your home? Connecticut has been hit hard by the foreclosure crisis and has been lagging behind other states with the recent recovery. If you are among the countless families who face the threat of losing your home to foreclosure, you should immediately contact an attorney who can help you fight to keep your home. There are things you can do to stop the bank from beginning foreclosure proceedings and you may be able to reverse the process after it has started.

It is possible that you are in this position as a result of predatory lending practices on the part of your bank. Some financial institutions are known to have offered loans to borrowers who simply weren't qualified. Other actions include failure to disclose the full terms of a loan or imposing unfair or abusive loan terms. Even if the lender has acted fairly, you may be able to negotiate a loan modification for a lower monthly payment or similar changes that will allow you to keep the home. Lenders are often willing to renegotiate if it means that they will recover a majority of what is owed, rather than losing to default.

Fight for Your Home!

One of the most effective things you can do to prevent foreclosure is to file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. As soon as you file, you will be protected from creditor actions by an automatic stay, meaning that your bank cannot carry out a foreclosure against you. After you discharge your debt, you may then have more of your income to pay your mortgage.
