Filing A Lawsuit
Successful litigation defenses to foreclosure are due, in large part, to the unearthing of more and more evidence that the mortgage industry have been rife with errors. Courts that once rubber-stamped foreclosure actions have shifted their sympathies towards borrowers.

Saunders & Associates, APC, noticed this change in judicial attitude and challenge foreclosure actions in many different ways. Some of the most common defenses to foreclosure include:

Foreclosing bank didn't follow the required State and Federal procedures;
Foreclosing party can't prove it owns the loan (it lacks “Standing”);
Mortgage servicer made a serious mistake when handling your loan;
Statute of limitations has passed;
Servicer used a defective affidavit or declaration;
Crediting your payments to the wrong party
Dual-tracking in violation of Federal law or State law, if applicable;
Imposing excessive fees or fees not authorized by mortgage contract;
Substantially overstating the amount you must pay to reinstate your mortgage;
Defective Affidavits and Declarations
