Foreclosure Mediation Can Save Your Home

Did you know that foreclosure mediation can save your home?  In response to the rise in foreclosure cases, the Ohio Supreme Court urged the courts to use mediation to help people save their homes.  Many Ohio courts responded to this call for action by offering mediation in foreclosure cases.  Prior to this program, homeowners in foreclosure cases did not have much of a chance to save their homes.  With mediation through the courts, mortgage lenders are forced to have a bank representative participate in the mediation process.  In these sessions, the bank representatives report on the progress of the homeowner’s request for mortgage modification, including whether the request will be granted, denied, or needs additional information to reach a decision.  A foreclosure defense attorney can assist homeowners in this process.  First the foreclosure defense lawyer ensures that the necessary pleadings are filed and the proper defenses are raised.  Second, the mortgage modification lawyer helps ensure that the homeowner’s application for mortgage modification is complete and accurate.  Incomplete or inaccurate applications can be grounds for denying a modification.  The mortgage modification lawyer also helps the homeowner pursue alternative options, such as the hardest hit program.  The mortgage modification attorney helps the homeowner get in touch with the correct resources for completing this process.  This is important as there are numerous scam artists claiming to provide help, but do little more than make money for themselves.  Being directed to the reputable counseling agencies is an important part of the process.

Foreclosure Mediation And Bankruptcy


Your foreclosure defense attorney should also be a bankruptcy lawyer.  The threat of filing bankruptcy can be a powerful motivator for the mortgage lender to seriously consider the mortgage modification request.  If the mortgage modification request is ultimately denied, filing chapter 13 bankruptcy is an excellent way to save a home.  The chapter thirteen plan forces the mortgage lender to accept a reasonable repayment schedule.  While the chapter 13 bankruptcy is pending, many homeowners are successful at obtaining a modification of their mortgage.  These modifications occur even when the homeowner’s request was denied prior to the bankruptcy filing.

Foreclosure mediation and mortgage modification is not just for homeowners with one mortgage.  There are programs available for rental property and second mortgages/home equity loans.
