Loan Modifications

A loan modification allows you to reduce your interest rate, extend the term of your loan, and, in certain circumstances, reduce the outstanding principal balance of your loan. This option generally exists for individuals who have experienced an economic hardship, such as a reduction in salary or hours worked, and who can no longer afford their mortgage payments. Although you may choose to contact your lender(s) personally to negotiate a loan modification, our experience is that with borrowers defaulting at record high rates and lenders not having the resources or capacity to respond to everyone in a timely manner, attempting to obtain a loan modification on your own may result in significant loss of your time and/or money.

By choosing to retain Peters & Associates, LLP, you will receive the legal services of a firm that is uniquely suited to negotiate loan modifications. Mr. Zakalik formerly represented banks against lawsuits brought by borrowers alleging predatory loan practices. Drawing from this past experience, Mr. Zakalik brings to the Firm knowledge that you or other law firms may not possess as to how banks and mortgage service companies defend against consumer complaints and lawsuits. In addition, to offer insight into how a lender's loss mitigation department (the lender's division that negotiates loan modifications) operates and provide our clients the best possible result, the Firm employs the services of a team of former mortgage brokers , lenders, underwriters and processors to supply expert consultation and processing services. This combination of specific knowledge and experience has allowed the Firm to develop an exceptional legal strategy for negotiating loan modifications that delivers results.

Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure

A deed-in-lieu of foreclosure allows you to relieve yourself of your loan obligations by giving your lender title to your property. It allows you to bypass the foreclosure process and will usually have less of a negative effect on your credit rating than a foreclosure. Even if you owe more than your property is worth, the Firm can negotiate with your lender to relieve you of this deficiency so that you owe nothing to the lender. In some circumstances, the Firm may even be able to help you receive a money settlement. The Firm has experience negotiating deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure and can assist you in determining whether this is your best option based on your circumstances.

Short Sale

A Short Sale allows a homeowner to sell their property for less than what is owed. A Short Sale offers the benefits of allowing a homeowner to rid themselves of the financial burden of the home in a way that may also alleviate them of any deficiency judgment. The Firm has experience negotiating Short Sales and can complete the entire Short Sale process for you from start to finish, including listing the property, as well as, possibly negotiating for no deficiency judgment. In some cases, a Short Sale may be accomplished with no out-of-pocket expenses to the homeowner.
