We have saved the homes of scores of homeowners facing foreclosure in Cleveland, Ohio.
Cleveland Case Study
One of our recent trials in Medina County, south of Cleveland, resulted in the judge ordering the foreclosure cased dismissed. In that case, the mortgage company gave our client a loan modification in her maiden name. However, it refused to update its records or the loan modification to her married name. It refused to give her the document in her married name. Because it refused to change the loan modification documents to her married name, she could not find a notary. Without the notarization, the servicer would not accept the signed modification documents.
Rather than update the loan modification documents to reflect her correct name, which would have saved her home from foreclosure, the mortgage company filed a foreclosure lawsuit instead. The Cleveland-area judge decided at bench trial that it would not be fair for the mortgage company to win. He found that the foreclosure case was the result of their actions, not hers. Had they just updated the document, the foreclosure could have been avoided. That Cleveland Ohio foreclosure case was dismissed!
