Texas Foreclosure and Your Rights: What Every Home Owner Needs to Know

Posted by John A. Hixson | Mar 14, 2013 | 0 Comments

Texas foreclosure is a serious legal process that can result in the repossession of your home and serious damage to your credit record that can be devastating to overcome. The foreclosure process can be initiated by the lender as soon as you begin missing payments on your mortgage.  If you want to protect your credit rating and your home, you need to know your rights as a homeowner and take the time to learn about your options before a foreclosure takes place.

The best way to prevent a foreclosure from happening is to get legal help right away.  The foreclosure process is one of the most difficult legal proceedings you may ever face.  Not only are you dealing with possibly losing your home, but you may be having other types of financial issues as well.   A foreclosure lawyer can help you work through all of the issues at hand, helping you see your options from an objective point of view.

Foreclosures can often be stopped if the homeowner pays off all of the associated foreclosure costs and fees, the mortgage lender fraudulently obtained the mortgage, or if the homeowner has filed for bankruptcy.  If you believe that your home has been put into foreclosure due to an error, it's especially important to act fast in order to protect your rights.  By being proactive and taking action before it's too late, you may be able to save your home and your financial future as well.  When it comes to your home and your family, it pays to look into your options.

You home is your castle – don't let the banks take it away without a fight!  Having a legal ally in your corner offers the best chance for success, so don't hesitate to call for help if you are facing foreclosure.
