Many homeowners find themselves in the foreclosure process, whether they just received a Notice of Default from their lender or just received a Notice of Sale with an auction date scheduled in the next couple of weeks. These homeowners’ main concern is how to stop foreclosure. To stop foreclosure, we will evaluate the facts of your case and advise you on whether you have a strong case against your lender. Each case is unique; if the facts of your case present a strong legal case and you have an active sale date, then we will file a lawsuit followed by an application for temporary restraining order requesting the Judge to sign an order to stop foreclosure given the pending lawsuit. There are many examples of strong cases, such as when the lender breaches a contract the borrower signed or the lender forecloses while the borrower is in active loan modification review for a mortgage modification.
Most Common Home Foreclosure
In California, homeowners can face a judicial foreclosure or a nonjudicial foreclosure. However, the overwhelming majority of foreclosures in California are nonjudicial foreclosures. A judicial foreclosure is an actual lawsuit that requires court intervention. A nonjudicial foreclosure is conducted by a trustee who must adhere to particular procedures and noticing requirements. Bank foreclosures are usually nonjudicial foreclosures. In this instance, borrowers receive a Notice of Default providing 90-days to cure the amount in default and reinstate their loan. If the loan is not brought current, then the trustee will send the borrower a Notice of Trustee Sale. The notice of trustee sale will have a date and time of the foreclosure auction approximately 20-days from the date of the notice. As an alternative to avoid foreclosure, a homeowner may be able to negotiate a deed in lieu of foreclosure with their lender.
The majority of foreclosure cases our firm handles deal with home foreclosures, meaning an individual’s or family’s primary residence is going through foreclosure. Rental properties or commercial properties may also go through foreclosure. These properties have slightly less protective laws covering them since they are not primary residences, however, there are still procedures and noticing requirements lenders are required to follow with regards to these properties.

Prior Successful Foreclosure Lawsuits Brought by Consumer Action Law Group
In Mushin v. Bank of America, our client made all the payments he was required to under the trial period plan he was offered by Bank of America. Bank of America never followed through with the permanent modification. Our client’s case settled and our client received a monthly payment reduction from $2,980.65 to $1,409.55. In addition, our client received a reduction of their principal balance in the amount of $277,549.98.
In Brizuela v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, our clients were making mortgage payments and when the loan was transferred to Ocwen. Ocwen began sending our clients loan statements claiming arrears. Our clients had their proof of payments. A lawsuit was filed. Our clients ultimately settled through an Ocwen loan modification. Prior to the litigation, our clients had a mortgage payment of $3,262.00. After the lawsuit, our clients’ new mortgage payment amount was $2,069.53 and their principal balance was reduced from $530,000.00 to $335,000.00.
Both of these clients once found themselves being threatened with their homes in foreclosure. If these clients did not hire an experienced foreclosure attorney, they would have been in risk of losing their homes. Because they filed the lawsuits, they were able to save their homes and resume making mortgage payments at a much lower monthly payment amount. More foreclosure cases can be found here, click here.
