Foreclosure Defense Strategies for Real Estate Investors

Foreclosure defense is a legal strategy in which a homeowner retains the services of an attorney to complete a forensic loan audit of all the documents associated with the mortgage. The attorney is looking for fraud and predatory lending violations than can then be used to aggressively counter sue the bank for damages and in return force the bank to negotiate with the homeowner or investor. Remarkably, on average over 80% of all residential loans since 2003 contain such violations. During the housing boom, banks could not push new mortgages through their system fast enough to satisfy the appetite for profits by Wall Street.

Bankruptcy and the Real Estate Investor – BK Doesn’t Solve Everything

Bankruptcy alone does not relinquish ownership of the property. The bank has to legally foreclosure on the investor in order to take back the property. This means the investor could actually keep collecting any rents received until the property is sold at auction assuming the bank does not assume the rents as they are entitled to. The main thing bankruptcy accomplishes is that it eliminates the right of the lender to collect a deficiency judgment from the investor when the property sells for less than its loan amount.
