Information on Foreclosures in the Florida Keys

Understanding a Foreclosure

Purchasing property requires a significant investment; most people cannot afford to pay the entire purchase price in cash. This is where mortgages come into the picture.  In exchange for lending you the money, your lender will hold a lien on the property.  This provides them with the right to repossess the property if you fail to make your payments, a process is known as foreclosure. Some of the most common reasons for foreclosure include the property owner’s …

  • Losing their job
  • Facing illness, impacting their ability to work
  • Incurring an increase in expenses.

Additionally, the terms surrounding some mortgages can change. In some cases, rises in interest rates simply make the monthly payments too high to manage.

Client Testimonial

“I have used Carlos for the last 5 or so years. He has helped me achieve 2 settlements with banks I sued, retain property out of foreclosure for good. I have used him to quiet title, evictions, getting escrow money back on deals that went bad, sending letters to people, foreclosure defense and litigation, and other real estate matter requiring a lawyer like probate cases. He is usually easy to reach on his cell, and responds quickly. He is not a rip off like most lawyers down here who charge you for paper clips and don’t know what they are talking about. I would recommend giving him a try , especially if you are using one of these rip off lawyers we have so many of in south florida.” – Buy Wholesale (Google Review)
