Achieving Mortgage Debt Relief with a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure
Providing clients with sound alternatives
If you are prepared to leave your home in exchange for being relieved of the balance of your mortgage debt, giving your creditor a deed in lieu of foreclosure may be a good option for you. Under this foreclosure prevention strategy, you voluntarily surrender the deed to your house to your creditor, which prevents or stops foreclosure proceedings. Our skilled debt relief attorneys with the Miller Law Group, P.C. can protect your interests if you choose to surrender your deed and ensure you won’t be subject to foreclosure at a later date.
Advantages of a deed in lieu of foreclosure
If you are facing imminent foreclosure and lack the time to participate in a short sale, providing a deed in lieu of foreclosure may be a more efficient option. If your lender agrees to accept a deed in exchange for forgiving your debt, you are exempt from finding a buyer for your property or participating in a lengthy and expensive real estate sale process. These and other advantages make deeds in lieu of foreclosure an attractive option for you if you’re trying to prevent foreclosure.
Are all properties eligible for a deed in lieu of foreclosure?
In a word, no. Only properties that are free of liens and have no additional mortgages are eligible for a deed in lieu of foreclosure. If there’s a lien on your property for any of the following reasons, you may be unable to hand over your deed in lieu of foreclosure:
- Home repair work
- Financial judgments
- Unpaid taxes
As experienced debt relief attorneys, we can help you determine whether a deed in lieu of foreclosure is right for you. If you decide to proceed, we help you communicate with your lender, handle negotiations and draw up the deed to successfully achieve your financial goals.
