Real Estate Buyers
A mortgage is a lien on your property, placed by a bank or financial institution, for money that you borrowed from the financial institution in order to pay for the property. When a mortgage has been signed and approved, you will have the obligation to pay back the loan for the property, plus interest, and the financial institution will have the right to foreclose your property if you do not repay the mortgage. Sometimes a mortgage loan modification can prevent foreclosure. We represent individuals and businesses in the structuring of commercial and residential real estate loan transactions.
We provide a range of services for mortgage holders, including:
·Collecting delinquent mortgage payments
