Deficiency Action and Bank Litigation

Recently, we have seen a lot of litigation involving banks.  Bank litigation is common when there has been a sudden drop in the value of real estate.  When the value of an asset drops and the debt remains constant, a dispute will often result.

 The most common type of bank litigation in this real estate market is a deficiency action.  A deficiency action arises when an individual has barrowed money to purchase real estate and then is unable or unwilling to pay back the loan.  The bank then forecloses on the property and then sues the barrower for the difference between what was barrowed and what was recovered for the property after foreclosure.  These lawsuits sometimes arise after a short-sale or a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.

Usually, we represent the barrower in these situations. The barrower is usually under a great deal of stress.  He or she has always paid debts.  He or she has never been behind on a mortgage or loan repayment but does not have another option based upon the realities of the real estate market and their own personal finances.  They have tried to get help from the banks and found that the banks just want another payment.

These people should contact us immediately and without further delay.  We can give them information, share our experiences, and help them understand best and worst case resolutions for these complex financial problems.  Whether you are a developer with hundreds of properties or an individual with under-water investment property we can help you put together a strategy that will address these liabilities without unnecessary harm to your financial future.

Civil & Real Estate LitigationCivil & Real Estate Litigation

Civil Litigation is the process of resolving disputes between individuals or businesses over money, real estate, contracts, debt or some other right or obligation.  An aggrieved party may sue the other individual or business in court.  The resulting civil lawsuit must identify the parties, state the basis for relief and make a specific request for the relief sought.  A civil dispute can be resolved by a judge, a jury, an arbitrator or the parties themselves.  We can help you recover money damages, assert claims and defenses, and enforce your rights.  We can also help negotiate a favorable resolution to claims where you may have liability.  We represent Plaintiffs and Defendants in these types of lawsuits everyday.
