Helping People Save or Forestall Foreclosure of Their Homes in Tampa & Riverview
If an action for foreclosure has been filed against you, it may be delayed long enough to give you options to save your home or, at the very least, to allow you to stay in your home during the foreclosure process without making the mortgage payment. Furthermore, by delaying the foreclosure action, you would have the opportunity to sell the house by short sale or otherwise, refinance the mortgage with another lender, obtain a loan modification with your current lender, obtain a forbearance agreement or a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure, or file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
Your first step is to contact an experienced attorney who can help you explore your options. I founded the law firm of All Family Law Group (Lynette Silon-Laguna, P.A.) , in 1997 to provide the people in Tampa and all of Hillsborough County with effective, amicable and empathetic solutions to their legal problems. My attorneys and staff are committed to providing you with the personalized service and professional representation you deserve.

What Does Foreclosure Mean for You?
The term foreclosure has been heard a lot lately in the media, but what is it, really? Foreclosure is an action taken by the lender and filed with the Court to take your property when you have not timely made your mortgage payments. You are personally served with a foreclosure petition and you have 20 days thereafter to respond to the lender and to file a copy of your response with the Court.
If you have been served with a foreclosure notice, you should not sit back and see what happens. You have options for either forestalling or possibly terminating the foreclosure action. Banks are required to take very specific steps during the foreclosure process, and we will protect your interests throughout the process.
You Need to Act Quickly
It is important to contact my firm as soon as possible if you have been served with a foreclosure petition. Under Florida law, as you only have 20 days to respond to this notice, it is critical to discuss your legal options with one of my attorneys to avoid the bank's default on your foreclosure action.
