Worried About a Foreclosure? – Ask Steve

Written by  in category 
March 17, 2017

Join Attorney Stephen Foondos from the United Law Center this and every Saturday from 3-4:00 p.m. for the Ask Steve For Free radio program on NewsRadio KFBK 1530AM when we discuss what to do if you’re worried about a foreclosure and also why you should never expect an up front guarantee from your attorney on case results. Be sure and check out Stephen’s new series, The Ask Steve for Free Legal Challenge that runs every weekday morning at 7:30am on KQCA-MY58 TV. These weekly topics will extend into the radio show where we explore them in more depth. This week’s show will cover:

What should you do if you’re facing a foreclosure? Have you experienced a hardship and missed a payment or two then been offered a modification from your lender? Did you accept a modification only to later be foreclosed upon or be denied the modification? We want to help you understand what documents to look out for, and what the signs are if your bank is trying to wrongfully foreclose on your home.

If you are facing an immediate foreclosure including an auction sale or eviction YOU STILL HAVE OPTIONS. We can help you navigate what solution makes the most sense in your unique case:

  • Seeking a loan modification yourself through your lender or Keep Your Home California
  • Discussing a short sale with your lender
  • Filing a lawsuit with a qualified, experienced foreclosure attorney
  • Filing for Bankruptcy

What do we do now that HAMP has ended? What is the future for mortgage modification? Don’t expect mortgage servicers to be very motivated to give more modifications. It still worth trying but you’re more likely to get a real modification directly from your lender.

A recent New York Times article highlights that through HAMP, “Around 70 percent of those who applied for loan modifications were turned down (in the HAMP program). In the end, some 1.6 million homeowners had their loans permanently modified — less than half the number the program was intended to help. Meanwhile, nearly 14 million homes went into foreclosure, according to ATTOM Data Solutions, which tracks foreclosure filings.”

However, in California, we still have funds available through Keep Your Home California, which was extended through 2020 or until the remaining funds are depleted. Or, if you can refinance to get away from a servicer, DO IT IMMEDIATELY before interest rates escalate.

Join us each Saturday on 1530AM NewsTalk KFBK for the Ask Steve Show from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Past show podcasts are available here.

  1. Yes! Finally someone writes about personal injury lawyer Los
    Angeles.

  2. You’re so awesome! I do not suppose I have read through something like this before. So good to find someone with unique thoughts on this subject. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This web site is something that is required on the web, someone with a bit of originality!|

  3. I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the web might be a lot more useful than ever before.|

  4. Wonderful blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thank you!|

    Heya just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.|

  6. I like it whenever people come together and share opinions. Great blog, keep it up!|

  7. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve visited your blog before but after looking at a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely pleased I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!|

  9. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  10. What’s up to every body, it’s my first pay a quick visit of this blog; this website contains awesome and really fine information for readers.|
