What is Foreclosure?
Foreclosure Attorney in Los Angeles, California
Most western states have a “non-judicial” foreclosure system in which a foreclosure trustee sends a series of legal notices to the homeowner, and then subsequently forecloses on the property, without any court intervention. Once the non-judicial foreclosure sale takes place, it terminates most legal rights the homeowner has in the property, and the property is transferred either back to the lender, or to a 3rd party purchaser. Foreclosure becomes likely when a homeowner falls behind on their mortgage payments, the more payments they are behind, the more likely a foreclosure will take place.
What Causes Foreclosure?
Lenders, and in many cases the mainstream media, would like you to believe foreclosure is caused by “irresponsible” homeowners. This is simply NOT true. Many circumstances beyond the homeowners’ control typically contribute to a homeowner falling behind on mortgage payments, these factors often include:
- Loss of Job or Income
- Illness/ Medical Challenges
- Adjustment in Loan Terms
