Long Island Fraudulent Foreclosure Defense
New York City Foreclosure Defense Attorney
It has come to light in recent years that numerous banks and financial institutions have utilized, in their loan application process, mortgage underwriting and mortgage closing documents, documents which have proven to be either fraudulent or misleading. When our law firm defends a foreclosure lawsuit we investigate the actions and documents prepared by the financial institution who gave the loan, serviced the loan, were assigned the documents from the prior financial institution, handled the bookkeeping for the loan, and were involved in any aspect of the loan administration process. We have found loan processors and banks have been involved in poor bookkeeping and dishonest practices. We have investigated and found numerous instances of false misleading representations, less than honest disclosure material, last minute add-ons of expenses, raising of interest rates, and improper tactics that took place during the underwriting process and at the time of the closing of the real estate transaction. We have also uncovered cases involving false documents which have been submitted in foreclosure proceedings to courts.
When a homeowner receives a summons and complaint in a foreclosure lawsuit they sometimes go through a process of regret, anger, and depression. They can feel defenseless when presented with a lawsuit by a multi-billion dollar financial institution. This is not a time to back off. An experienced foreclosure defense lawyer can protect your rights and see to it that you remain in your home. Our law firm uncovers violations of truth in lending laws, violations of New York State consumer protection laws, mistakes made by banks, failure of banks to provide appropriate assignments, situations involving robo-signers, fraudulent and misleading actions taken by financial institutions and other misleading or inappropriate procedures that will provide the homeowner with a defense to the foreclosure lawsuit and will also help them in some situations in negotiating a mortgage modification.
