Do I Need a Lawyer to Fight a Foreclosure?


If you are about to enter into the home foreclosure world, you may be wondering if it is something you can handle on your own. While it is true that you are legally allowed to deal with your own foreclosure case, it is highly recommended that you seek counsel to assist you through the foreclosure process. The only exception would be if you are in agreement with the foreclosure commencing – in which case, you would simply need to find alternative living space.

On the other hand, if you want to remain in your home and are being foreclosed upon, whether justly or in error, it’s in your best interest to hire the most qualified foreclosure defense attorney in NJ that you can find. It may seem counter-intuitive to pay some of your valuable money to retain a lawyer to handle your foreclosure defense. After all, if you’re going through a foreclosure, chances are good that you are stretched a little thin.

However, in this case, going the cheap route (handling the matter without an attorney, or hiring an attorney who knows little about foreclosure) can often end up being more expensive in the long run. The reason for this is because foreclosure laws are extremely complicated, as are rules surrounding foreclosure litigation. As a matter of fact, it is an area of law that many attorneys know nothing about.

This makes it all the more important to find an attorney who is extremely qualified to represent you in your New Jersey foreclosure defense. You will want an attorney who specializes in foreclosure defense, and who has quite a few successful cases under his belt.

Every foreclosure case is complex and unique. Good foreclosure defense attorneys know this and do not treat all foreclosures equally. You want to work with an attorney who has a deep understanding of foreclosure rules, procedures and legalities.

Your qualified New Jersey foreclosure defense attorney will sit down with you and examine all of the details surrounding your specific foreclosure case. He will ask you about your goals and then tell you what your options are. Working closely together with you, a qualified NJ foreclosure defense lawyer will create a strategy specific to your case details and your goals.
