Should You Negotiate A Consent Order In Foreclosure?

Sometimes you have to give something up to get something else. That's the case for recent clients of our firm who agreed to a consent order that involved them consenting to judgment and withdrawing their contesting answer to the foreclosure complaint in exchange for getting more time before judgment was entered and avoiding a trial.

A little background on foreclosures is required to explain what a consent order is. In judicial foreclosure states like Florida, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Illinois, a lender must sue a homeowner in a civil lawsuit in order to foreclose on their home.

If you're served a foreclosure summons and complaint, which starts the lawsuit, you have the right to answer it and deny the bank's claims and raise your own defenses. And you should, if you have any desire to keep your home. It can buy you a lot of time in your home, during which you can work toward a permanent solution.

It's Time to Get Ready for the 2018 Hurricane Season

2017's Atlantic hurricane season was one of the strongest ever, with three Category 4 storms hitting the U.S. (Irma in Florida, Maria in Puerto Rico, and Harvey in Texas) causing billions of dollars in damage and thousands of deaths. Unfortunately, the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June through November, is expected to be above average in terms of number and intensity of storms.

As of this writing, two people have already died in flooding caused by tropical storm Alberto.

For 2018, forecasters are predicting 14-18 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 hurricanes of category 3 or higher. So, it's a good idea to take all necessary precautions to protect you and your family's well-being and property from the effects of any storms that might come your way.

The National Hurricane Center says that there are two keys to weather safety:

  1. Prepare for the risks.
  2. Act on those preparations when alerted by emergency officials.

You can visit the National Hurricane Center's website to read all of their tips on safety during the hurricane season, but here are some of things to take into consideration as you prepare for potential storms.
