Pottstown, PA Foreclosure Lawyer

Pennsylvania continues to have one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country, and Pottsville hasn’t escaped the trend.

In fact, Montgomery County leads the charge with the 4th highest foreclosure rate in the state.

If you need help avoiding foreclosure, you’re not alone.

How Your Pottstown, PA Foreclosure Defense Attorney Can Help

Sometimes people are surprised to learn foreclosure can be fought, and a loan modification isn’t the only way.

In fact, there are a lot of strategies we use. We’ve successfully argued for case dismissal on procedural grounds. We’ve successfully proven our Pottstown clients were issued unconscionable loans. We’ve even been able to show the bank violated their own side of the contractual agreement, voiding their right to foreclose.

Sometimes it’s just a matter of buying time for you to take other actions, like selling the house. Or buying time while helping you negotiate a short sale.

Much depends on your goals. If you’re only worried about keeping the foreclosure off your credit report we’d adopt a different strategy than if you are desperately trying to save your home.

What about tax foreclosures?

We can help with those too. It’s a sad fact that you can pay off every penny of your home loan only to lose everything to missed tax payments. It’s also a sad fact that Montgomery County property tax rates seem to grow every year.

Current property tax rates can turn the annual bill for a modest $185,000 home into a $10,000 payment that’s anything but modest. Many people are overpaying. In Montgomery County over 210,000 people are.

The good news is you have the right of redemption in a tax foreclosure, which means if you get caught up you can keep your home. The bad news is that might not help if you can’t lay hands on that kind of money. In that case, filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often the best defense.
