Short Sales Attorney

Law Firm Servicing Long Island and New York Metro Areas

Sometimes, when someone is truly behind on their mortgage payments, the mortgage debt is greater than the value of the home, and it does not seem like they will be able to pay back the mortgage, a mortgage holder will be willing to accept a short sale in exchange. A short sale is essentially a sale of your mortgaged property to a third party for less than the value of its current mortgage. While this is not necessarily favorable for a mortgage holder, it can seem much better than the alternative of being saddled with a foreclosed home they do not want.

The New York foreclosure lawyers at David J. Lorber & Associates will work with you to short sell your home to get the burden of your mortgage off of you. We handle a variety of issues related to short sales, including:

  • Negotiating with your mortgage holder
  • Seeking forgiveness for remaining debt
  • Fighting a deficiency judgment
  • Dealing with issues related to the real estate sale

Our lawyers will work with you to convince your lender to agree to a short sale of your home. We will also help you get forgiveness for any remaining debt from your mortgage that may remain after the short sale goes through. If your mortgage holder seeks a deficiency judgment against you, we will help you fight it to ensure you are no longer saddled with debt. A short sale can seem daunting, but for many, it is a preferable alternative to the risk of a foreclosure.
