Are you behind on mortgage payments and are being foreclosed on by Wells Fargo? Deciding what step you should take next can be hard, that’s why Denbeaux & Denbeaux Law wants to make it easier for you.
Mortgage servicers like Wells Fargo must comply with federal laws regulating the foreclosure process in New Jersey that prevent servicers from certain inappropriate practices that violate homeowner rights. Whether or not you should actually be foreclosed on by Wells Fargo, you may have options.
If any of these or other situations have happened to you, the law office of Denbeaux & Denbeaux Law may be able to help:
Dealing with Wells Fargo can be stressful. Make sure you have an experienced foreclosure defense attorney by your side that will navigate you through the process and give you a fair chance at obtaining a reasonable outcome.
A mortgage servicing company, also known as the mortgage servicer, is the company that handles your mortgage loan and often gets confused with the owner of the loan.
The owner of your mortgage loan is the bank or mortgage company that originally gave you the mortgage loan that allowed you to purchase your property. Some owners will also be the mortgage servicer of your loan, but some owners hire a second party to act as the servicer of the loan.
If you have received a Notice of Intent to Foreclose or other notices from Wells Fargo, they may or may not own your mortgage loan. However, failing to act when you receive a notice of foreclosure from Wells Fargo immediately may result in a foreclosure in as little as 6 months.
In most cases, the foreclosure process can be time sensitive and require that homeowners communicate with their servicers as soon as possible in order to get the best results. It’s important to know who your mortgage servicing company is from the beginning so you know who to reach out to for important information regarding your foreclosure and loan modification options.
