Are you a Florida homeowner currently facing foreclosure and have recently received a summon notifying you of the foreclosure suit filed against you? If so, we at Florida Consumer Law Center in Tampa have a team of Florida foreclosure defense attorneys on staff to assist you and your family through the foreclosure process and to protect your rights as a Florida homeowner.
Lenders have attorneys whose job is to foreclose and take possession of the home. Most consumers are not aware of their legal rights and defenses in the foreclosure proceeding which if NOT enforced could be lost.
Foreclose defense representation will afford the homeowner a careful examination of their rights and may prevent the lenders' attorneys from closing the door on other options available to them such as a loan modification, short sale, or deed in lieu of foreclosure. In special circumstances a forensic loan audit could reveal possible lender violations which could void the lenders' right to foreclose.
Our Loan Auditors will audit your loan for predatory lending violations, which when combined with legal action may be your best option to protect your rights and possibly save your home. Possible violations may include Truth in Lending, RESPA, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, FHA, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, and more.
Your may be eligible if you have a variable interest rate and having trouble paying your payments or may go into default. You may qualify for programs that allow for the modification of you existing loan terms.

Too many try to work with the banks in a desperate effort to save their home and ignore the legal process of the court - give up their rights to defend foreclosure and are turned down by the banks at the last minute.
Florida homeowners spend too much time obeying the requests of the banks and trying to personally negotiate deals that will allow them to stay in their home, rather then protecting their right to the home with representation of legal counsel. Protecting your homeowner rights must defended in court before the sale of the property is scheduled and the ownership of the title is transferred. If a homeowner fails to protect and defend their rights in a timely manner during a foreclosure suit, the banks will have a much easier time taking your home to a public auction and evicting you in as little as a few months. But by protecting your rights in a foreclosure, homeowners may be able to drag out the process giving more time to find alternative foreclosure options and save their home.
Remember, in Florida you only have 20 days to respond to a foreclosure complaint. Contact the Florida Consumer Law Center, P.A. today to avoid any delays that could adversely affect your foreclosure case.
