When “foreclosure, foreclosure, foreclosure” became more important than “location, location, location” we were ready. We’ve been representing bankers, bidders and borrowers in foreclosure actions for over fifteen years. It’s not a “new” line of work to us. We think that helps you.
At HLF my staff and I have represented foreclosure companies (trustees) for over 15 years. We’ve also represented “professional bidders,” or investors at foreclosure sales, for just as long, and in those 15 years, I’ve come across some pretty scary scenarios.
When the real estate market went to hell in a hand-basket in 2008, my staff and I already had years of experience in the area. We didn’t chase the work like it was a new invention – the work found us, ready, able, and experienced.
We were – and are – able to take that experience, the experience of perfecting a sale at a foreclosure, and turn it into a tool to prevent a foreclosure. After all, the law is the law. If you can argue one side, you have to know the other side just as well.
If a lender hasn’t done its job exactly right—the sale can—and should—be set aside. The headlines are filled with story after story of lenders taking short cuts and messing up the process. That is where my staff and I step in. We can look at a foreclosure transaction and spot what was done right—and what was done wrong. If a borrower/owner has a claim, I’ll make it for them. If not, I’ll tell them—straight up. I won’t take a case I don’t think has a chance of winning. But, if you do have a claim—my staff and I will fight for it.
Does that mean I work only for borrowers? Nope. The coin has two sides. If you are an investor, and you made a righteous purchase at a foreclosure sale, but now the former owner is doing everything they can to stall from giving up the property, I can help you there too.
