Whether you are behind on your mortgage or a foreclosure action has already been filed, you have options. One of these is called "loss-mitigation." Loss-mitigation (also called foreclosure workouts) is a negotiation process between you and your lender.

Under this process, you have a few foreclosure options as a homeowner:
While workouts can work for borrowers, if your work-out plan does not succeed, you may have only days to stop a foreclosure. It is not enough time. The best way to truly protect your home is to contact Christopher R. Lucas as soon as possible to discuss your foreclosure options.
In this challenging real estate market veteran trial attorney Christopher R. Lucas is known as "the closer" when it comes to restructuring and loan modifications which are so vital to survival in this commercial and residential real estate market.

At the Goforth & Lucas Law Partnership we understand that property values have declined significantly, and many property owners are underwater on their businesses and homes. Many of our clients have experienced hardships and cannot afford to continue mortgage payments due to a job loss, decrease in income, or loss of customers. For over 30 years, Attorney Christopher Lucas has been helping homeowners and commercial property owners negotiate loan workout agreements with their lenders. We walk our clients through the legal, credit, and tax implications of short sales, deed in lieu of foreclosures, and other workout options so that clients can choose and understand the path that is right for them.
Many people believe that because the loss mitigation department is "working" their case that the attorneys prosecuting the foreclosure have stopped. The fact is, the mortgage company's mitigation department typically has no lines of communication with the foreclosure attorneys! While you are trying to work things out, foreclosure lawyers are most likely aggressively preparing a case against you.
Keep in mind things don't always run smoothly with the loss mitigation program. They may lose your files, you may speak with a different person each time you call and/or you may start too late to actually prevent foreclosure on your home.
That is why it is critical that you have an attorney on your side to help with foreclosure early in the process; someone who can help you understand all of your foreclosure options while protecting your interests.
