Frequently Asked Questions
I'm facing a foreclosure, how can you help me?
Every situation is unique, however, our first step is to analyze your situation and look at options to halt the foreclosure action and stop the expensive legal fees from escalating. Our team of professionals and affiliates include many of the top real estate, legal, and financial experts in the province. We have the specialized knowledge on the process works and are able to work with you and your lender to find alternatives to having your house go into foreclosure, and subsequently and ruin your credit for years to come.
Our next step is to analyze the situation to see if there is a way that we can keep you in your home. We will review all possible financial restructuring options to neutralize or pay out your creditors. If there are no other options available we look to see how your situation will impact your financial future, and provide you with options and guidance through the foreclosure proceedings to help you to avoid any further judgments, get your financial outlook back on track, and move on with your life.
Should I consider filing for bankruptcy?
No, filing for bankruptcy is not the best solution to solving the problem. Firstly, secured debts such as mortgages are not eliminated through filing for bankruptcy and do not halt a foreclosure. Secondly, the long-term financial repercussions of a bankruptcy can often leave you in an even worse credit situation than the one you are currently in. You may feel that this may be the only option to you, but there are often more favorable solutions available than bankruptcy. We would have to look at the entire scope of your problem before determining the best plan of action.
What happens to my credit if I lose my house in the foreclosure?
This record could stay on your credit report for at least 7 years, limiting your chances of getting credit or another mortgage when you need it. Losing your home may be a worse case scenario, but your credit still can be saved. To provide you with all of your available options you will need to be put in touch with one of our consultants to assess your situation and provide you with your solution options.
