real estate attorney
by Jeffry Stanton Becker , 06/29/2012
We hired Jeffry S. Becker to help us with some questions we had on our home mortgage. We were behind in our payments and on our homeowners dues. We did not know if we should just let the bank do a foreclosure on the house or file bankruptcy. Mr. Becker reviewed our mortgage documents, listened to us about our financial problems and explained to us all of our possible options in words we could understand. We finally decided that a short sale was the best thing to do. Mr. Becker helped us talk to our mortgage lender and find out if they would agree to a short sale and not sue us for a deficiency if the short sale price we sold the house for was less than the amount we owed on our mortgage. He helped us find the right real estate agent to list our house for sale. It took a few months but we finally found the right buyer who was qualified and ready to buy. Our real estate agent and Mr. Becker both negotiated with our lender to accept the buyer's offer and Mr. Becker made sure that our lender would not come after us for a deficiency judgment. He made sure the lender gave us that promise in writing. Mr. Becker also negotiated with our HOA (homeowners association) to work out a settlement wiht them so they did not sue us persoanlly for all of our delinquent homeowners dues. Mr. Becker did a great job. He was very knowledgable, patient, understanding and, most importantly, listened to us and took the time to explain everything to us. We would highly recommend him to anyone needing help with their real estate issues or problems. When we get our credit improved, we will definitely go back to Mr. Becker and let him find us a real estate agent to help us buy another house and we will want him to review our documents so we do not get in trouble again.
