There Must be a Way to Keep Your Home and Car

The Foreclosure Process Moves Fast
For most mortgage default situations in Georgia, unless there is language in the contract that dictates the foreclosure procedure, the requirements on the creditor are minimal, and the process usually looks something like this:
- The lender must run an ad in the newspaper for four weeks before the sale is scheduled to occur.
- The lender must notify you at least 15 days prior to the date of sale.
- After fulfilling these requirements, the lender can sell your house at auction at a fraction of its value, and you can lose your home in one month from your first late payment.
If you are even starting to get behind on your payments, it is essential to contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that we can stop foreclosure.
The Repossession Process Moves Even Faster
Often our clients are surprised to learn that, under Georgia law:
- Lenders can repossess immediately after you miss your first payment.
- Lenders are not required to give you any notice about repossession.
- Lenders can take your car from anywhere at all. As long as they don't violate trespass laws, they are not limited to taking your car only from the street or your driveway.
- If your car is repossessed, we can still get your car back, if we move quickly.
