Foreclosure Defense And Protecting Your Home

Like many Americans, you may be behind in your mortgage payments and facing foreclosure. Foreclosure is the legal process whereby a lender takes your property when you have defaulted under the terms of your mortgage. However, lenders must follow specific guidelines when pursuing a foreclosure. Our clients often come to us believing they have no other option but to vacate their home or sign it over to the bank; however, it is possible for them to keep their home and even avoid bankruptcy.

It is critical that you are advised by an attorney of the legal remedies that may be available to you. At Pilka & Associates, P.A., we understand that your home is usually your largest asset and the core of your family's stability. Our real estate attorneys in Brandon and Lakeland, Florida, can help you determine your options and develop an effective defense strategy.
