While the loan default-fueled recession is over, the real estate market in New York City is still suffering. While foreclosures are down nationally, they are on the rise in Brooklyn and Queens. High foreclosure rates means high rent for those in apartments or renting a home in an already volatile rental market. It creates a cycle that’s bad for longtime residents of some parts of the boroughs. Banks are eager to give homeowners the boot to make way for big spenders, often without giving people a second chance – or worse – using unlawful means to foreclose on properties.
If you are in Staten Island or the Bronx and you are facing some problem with a landlord or lending institution, you should call an experienced property law attorney like Sadatu Salami. Ms. Salami is a highly respected civil litigation lawyer with 13 years of experience. She has provided dozens of clients with respectful, non-judgmental defense against foreclosures, evictions and other real property or real estate law issues.
Foreclosure Defense in Brooklyn
Ms. Salami’s number one priority will be to help keep you and your family in the home you’ve invested in financially and emotionally. She will attempt to negotiate with the lender to get a modification. This will buy you both time as she looks at the lender’s actions up until they sent the first letter about a foreclosure (Their words to you on the phone are just as important, so keep a record of conversations). Were their actions lawful? Did the lender honor your contractual agreement? The answer to these questions may keep you in your house, and Ms. Salami can find those answers for you.
It’s likely that neither you nor your bank would enjoy a legal battle. Ms. Salami will try to negotiate on your behalf. However, if it comes down to a lawsuit against your bank for unlawful actions, she will fight hard until you get justice.
