When your home is undergoing foreclosure, the first document you will receive is the foreclosure summons. This is essentially a detailed report of who is filing a foreclosure action against you and why. Leinart Law Firm routinely assists clients who have been served with a foreclosure summons. It is crucial that you call us right away, as there is a limited amount of time that you have to respond. While we will review a basic defense and how to answer a foreclosure lawsuit, not every case is the same. Nothing in this blog should be construed as legal advice. If you have a specific question regarding your foreclosure, you need to consult with one of our foreclosure attorneys.
How to Answer
Once you receive your foreclosure summons, you will need to seek the advice of legal counsel immediately. Your attorney will sit down with you and go over all the allegations of the complaint. You will admit the allegation, deny, or say you do not have enough information to deny or admit. You will need to be honest with your attorney, as it is the only way they can accurately help you. Once your attorney has all your information, they can submit your answer.
