Orange County Foreclosure Lawyer
The ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage) with a fixed rate of interest for the first several months to several years seemed like a good idea years ago when home prices were skyrocketing upward. Many home buyers planned to either refinance or sell before the higher rate kicked in.
When the market changed and home values began dropping, the higher interest rates in the mortgage agreement still applied. Refinancing or selling became more difficult. For a large number of homeowners who became unable to meet the higher payments, this meant increasing financial stress and in some cases an inability to keep up the payments. Many property owners continue to struggle to stay current.
If you have fallen behind in your mortgage payments or you are being victimized by a predatory lender, an Orange County foreclosure lawyer can explain the various options available to help you avoid losing your home. Contact us today!
