Need a Foreclosure Attorney? Here are Five Tips for Choosing One

Going through a foreclosure can be an intimidating and expensive process. But being represented by a professional who knows about the process can put your mind at ease. There are thousands of lawyers who specialize in foreclosure rules and real estate laws, but how do you know which one is right for you? Here are five tips to help you choose one that will work for you.

1. Make sure you have documentation. Before you even begin looking for a foreclosure attorney, you should be sure you have the proper documentation that shows the specifics of your case. Start early by documenting all of your phone calls with the mortgage lender and keep any papers related to your foreclosure. Have your documents organized when you meet with potential foreclosure attorneys.

2. Ask friends and family. Do you know anyone that has gone through a foreclosure and hired a foreclosure attorney to help them through the process? If so, ask if they were satisfied with the attorney they hired. You can also look online for local attorneys who specialize in foreclosures and then read reviews of them by doing a simple search on their names through one of the major search engines.

3. Be factual, not emotional. Going through a mortgage foreclosure can be an emotional experience. But when you visit with a foreclosure attorney, they will not want to know about the emotions or feelings you have during the process. Stick to the facts and leave the emotions at the door.

4. Look for red flags. If a foreclosure attorney wants to rush to your aid before knowing all of the facts, it could be a red flag. However, the opposite could be a red flag as well. If the lawyer simply tells you there is nothing they can do about your problem, get another opinion. The purpose of hiring a mortgage foreclosure attorney is to stall the process so you can get back on your feet financially so keep that in mind when choosing one.
