Residential Foreclosures: Helping Your Client with Options

Rinky S. Parwani

A foreclosure often starts with an action to request the sale of the home to pay delinquent secured liens on the property such as a mortgage, property taxes, or home owner association dues. Helping a client in foreclosure is probably one of the most challenging types of law for an attorney. It requires the understanding of numerous areas of the law, in addition to incredible social skills, mathematical abilities, understanding of contracts, and ultimately strong litigation strategy. In short, a lawyer must not only be able to navigate the vast amount of changing law in the foreclosure ocean but also be able to handle the range of emotions impacting the home owner client.
