Foreclosure Defense & Short Sale Negotiation
Local Real Estate Law Firm
The State of Florida has been severely affected by the turbulence of the real estate market and fluctuations in property values. Many homeowners are left confused and frustrated when faced with the reality of negative equity over the foreseeable future. This situation becomes even worse when a lender elects to pursue you in court and foreclose your home. Many firms that provide foreclosure defense services lack the capability to handle your short sale transaction. Conversely, many firms that provide short sale negotiation services lack the knowledge and experience to defend your foreclosure action in court. Crockett Law P.L. offers a refreshing hybrid approach as the firm can negotiate your short sale transaction and passionately defend your rights in foreclosure court. This streamlined business model centralizes both processes and provides an efficient client experience with one point of contact.
There are numerous advantages in hiring a qualified law firm to represent you throughout the short sale process. I provide consistent updates to my client and their real estate agent professional throughout the negotiation. Crockett Law P.L. will always explain the terms of the short sale approval letter and what rights a lender may, or may not, have after a short sale closing to pursue any deficiency amounts. Further, many lenders will attempt to leverage borrowers through a foreclosure lawsuit during an active short sale negotiation. I can assist you with standing up to your lender and asserting all claims and defenses to protect your property and family.
