Libertyville IL foreclosure attorneyHomeowners who encounter financial difficulties can sometimes struggle to make mortgage payments. Unfortunately, if a person defaults on their mortgage, their lender may begin foreclosure proceedings, which could ultimately result in the loss of their home. Those who are having trouble meeting their financial obligations will want to understand the foreclosure process and the potential defense strategies that may be available.

Steps Followed in a Foreclosure

A homeowner will be considered to have defaulted on their mortgage if they fail to make payments on time or in full. After the first missed payment, a person may receive notification from their lender that they will be charged late fees, and after a second missed payment, the lender will usually advise the borrower that they may face legal action if they do not become current on their payments. After a third missed payment or delinquency of at least 90 days, the lender may contact the homeowner letting them know that they will be beginning foreclosure proceedings. This process will involve the following steps:

  1. Demand letter - At least 30 days before filing a foreclosure lawsuit, the lender must send the homeowner a notice that they are in default. This letter will provide details about how the borrower has failed to meet their obligations, describe what needs to be done to become current on mortgage payments, and provide a deadline for when payments must be made.
