Kirkland Real Estate Attorneys
Our firm’s comprehensive real estate practice serves the Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond and greater Seattle areas, and includes the following services:
If you — like many others in the state of Washington — are dealing with threats of foreclosure, creditor harassment, or struggling to manage debts, a short sale of your home may be an ideal solution for you. Generally, the short sale process involves listing the property for sale, proving to the lender that the homeowner is suffering a hardship, determining the value of the home, finding a qualified buying, gaining the lender’s approval to short sell the home, and closing the sale.
At DC Legal, our short sale attorneys will guide and advise you through every step of the short sale process, making it as easy and stress-free as possible. We also work with lenders to ensure the deficiency (the difference between the amount owed and the sale price) is forgiven.
Foreclosure Prevention and Guidance
The Washington State Foreclosure Fairness Act, which took effect in July 2011, allows attorneys and housing counselors to request that banks engage in a good faith mediation with Washington State homeowners before they foreclose. Our real estate attorneys have extensive experience using Washington’s foreclosure protection and bankruptcy laws to help people save their homes from foreclosure.
We have extensive experience in working with homeowners facing foreclosure to achieve the best results for each of our clients. Under the circumstances that you do not want or cannot afford to keep your home, our experienced real estate attorneys can help you buy more time in your home while you consider your options. While foreclosure may be the best option for you, there are alternatives. Furthermore, we can ensure that the foreclosure proceedings are legal, and stop them if they violate Washington State laws.
