Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure

Facing the threat of losing your home?

If you are among the countless families facing home foreclosure in Orange County and want to find out what you can do to resolve the situation, then you need to know about a legal instrument known as "deed in lieu of foreclosure." A home mortgage is a secured debt, meaning that when you signed the loan documents you agreed to put the house up as collateral against the debt.

When you carry out a deed in lieu, you simply offer to turn over the deed to the lender to satisfy the debt. Banks are often willing to cooperate with this type of request, as their main objective is to recover as much as possible on what you owe, and a deed in lieu is usually a much faster method than a foreclosure. If the house is upside down–worth less on the market than what is owed on the mortgage–you may meet opposition from your lender. In this case you might want to consider a short sale or other foreclosure alternatives.

A deed in lieu will offer you many advantages over a foreclosure, such as:

  • No legal requirement for the lender to file an official notice
  • Much more private matter, out of public sight
  • Most likely less damage to your credit
  • Quickly relieved of any debt you have not been able to handle on the home

Because it is a voluntary transaction, you will have to convince your lender to comply with your request, and a knowledgeable Orange County foreclosure attorney can not only represent you in negotiations, but also assist you through the entire process to ensure that it goes smoothly and quickly.
