You are not alone - many individuals, families and businesses throughout all of Long Island, New York and Florida are in a similar situation. Times are hard and for many it is hard to imagine how they can possibly get better.

Still, we represent clients in all aspects of landlord-tenant law in New York and Florida, ranging from the defense of tenant clients against eviction proceedings brought by their landlord to advocating on behalf of tenants to get their landlords to make necessary repairs or to treat the apartment for an outbreak of vermin or bedbugs.

If your mortgage company/servicer failed to do so, then you may be able to have the foreclosure proceeding dismissed. Defending long island foreclosures has sometimes resulted in cases where the banks do not have standing to sue and/or have failed to properly record the mortgage. Sometimes consumers are victims of predatory lending which caused their home to fall into foreclosure. Lenders give them mortgages that homeowners cannot afford. If you are a victim of predatory lending, you may have a viable defense. Sometimes a modification is possible - A Loan Modification being where the bank agrees to change one or more terms of the mortgage. Possible change to a Loan or Mortgage include: reducing the interest rate to avoid the lender falling back into foreclosure; extending the term of the mortgage to reduce the payments; and adding the arrears to the unpaid principal balance of your loan. Sometimes the property may be "under water" and a deed in lieu of foreclosure is a viable option. This option is a viable option for a situation where the person cannot afford to keep the home and the house is given back to the bank in exchange for a release. If there is equity in the property, a short sale may be possible. In most cases, the bank will not accept a deed in lieu of foreclosure if there are other mortgages or liens on the property.
