Florida Foreclosure Law
In the State of Florida, you only have twenty (20) days to respond to a pre-foreclosure complaint. It is critical to meet with a knowledgeable foreclosure defense lawyer to discuss the legal options available to you.
Foreclosure is an action by the bank to take back your property. You have the right to fight that action. The bank’s foreclosure lawyers must take specific steps in order to have the right to foreclose. In most cases, the court will take between 5 to 10 months to enter a final order in a foreclosure action. This time allows you or your foreclosure attorney to take action to save your home.
Additionally, almost all mortgages in the state of Florida give you or your defense attorney the right of “reinstatement.” This means at any time during the foreclosure litigation if the borrower comes up with the money for the late payments or can make a deal with the bank, the bank then legally must dismiss the foreclosure action.
Most people feel overwhelmed when they get sued for foreclosure–they move out of the house or sign the house over, not knowing that by hiring an attorney and fighting this action it is very possible to save their home, without filing bankruptcy.
