Let Us Help You Protect Your Home Against Foreclosure

You work hard for your family. You try to do everything right to provide a comfortable home and lifestyle. But all it takes is one major unexpected expense or financial misstep, and you face a mounting pile of debt and the possibility of foreclosure. It is every homeowner's worst nightmare: the summons and complaint sent certified mail, taped to your door or personally delivered to you by your mortgage bank. Although receiving a summons and complaint in a foreclosure case can be a jarring and stressful experience, in the state of New York you still have many options open to you.

Your Rights Are Protected Under New York Foreclosure Law

For more than 30 years, Ugell Law Firm, P.C., has been helping homeowners throughout the Greater Hudson Valley avoid the devastating impact of losing their homes and property to foreclosure. If you are facing a debt problem that is putting your home in jeopardy, it is time we sit down together to discuss your options. Often, just knowing how the foreclosure process works will help put your mind at ease. We can show you the various options you have to protect your rights as a debtor through personal bankruptcy, short sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure or mortgage loan modification.

Have You Received Notification Of Imminent Foreclosure?

Our firm will help you feel more confident about keeping your family in your home when we explain that lawmakers have put power and rights in your hands. Here are some basic but important things to know:

  • If you are facing foreclosure, New York is one of the best states to fight it in
  • Your mortgage bank must put you on notice of default, in writing, if you default on one or more of your monthly mortgage payments
  • The bank also must send you written notice that you are in danger of losing your home, and provide you with information on homeowners assistance prior to bringing any action through a state Supreme Court
