Fighting Foreclosure After a Default Judgment

VWL > Blog > Foreclosure > Fighting Foreclosure After a Default Judgment

Your lender brought a mortgage foreclosure action and obtained a default judgment against you.

So, it’s game over and you are bound to lose your home to foreclosure, right? Not necessarily!

The scenario usually goes something like this:

Your mortgage lender brought a foreclosure action against you and allegedly had you served with a summons and complaint. You failed to hire a foreclosure defense attorney or respond to the summons and complaint. The lender proceeded with the foreclosure action and obtained a default judgment against you.  Now your home is set to be sold at a fast approaching foreclosure auction.

This is not a good situation for any homeowner.  However, you may still be able to defend the foreclosure action and save your home from foreclosure. You might even be able to get a loan modification before it is all said and done. To determine if any of this is possible, you need to contact a knowledgeable foreclosure defense attorney immediately. They will determine if there is still time and a chance to vacate the default judgment and defend the foreclosure action.

If you are facing this type of foreclosure or foreclosure in general, we may be able to stop the foreclosure and give you an opportunity to negotiate a loan modification. We were recently successful in stopping a foreclosure auction and getting the homeowner into a foreclosure settlement conference. The lender has expressed an interest in negotiating a loan modification for the homeowner.
