Calgary Foreclosure Legal Support
Unsure of your rights and responsibilities while being faced with a foreclosure? Work with a legal expert to help you understand and navigate the process.
The past several years have created some of the most challenging economic conditions that many Albertans expect to face in their lifetime. As a result, many Albertans will be forced to default on their mortgage obligations – like their obligations to pay principal, pay interest and pay land taxes – or perhaps even their obligation to pay back the balance of the mortgage owing at the date that the term of the mortgage expires.
But there are defence options against mortgage action, and you do have real options and opportunities to reduce court costs, increase equity, or extend possession of the property. If you are faced with being a defendant in a mortgage action, we are here to provide you with a legal opinion and provide you with realistic options available for you to pursue.
Flat Fee Mortgage Foreclosure Services
If you are facing foreclosure action, Mainwood Legal Services has flat fee, limited retainer agreements where we can evaluate your situation, and provide a legal opinion outlining the options available to you.
We have acted for borrowers in the following foreclosure situations, with good success for the borrower:
- Asserting our client borrower’s protection from a deficiency judgment.
- Blocking a lender from completing a mortgage action triggered by a non-monetary default under the mortgage. The lender had to wait until the expiry of the full term of the mortgage to take any action.
- Negotiating to get more time for the borrower to stay in possession of the property.
- Getting judgment from the Court requiring that the lender pay the borrower’s court costs, due to the lender failing to act reasonably. Normally, the borrower would be required to pay the lender’s court costs.
- Generally cooperating with the lender’s lawyer to increase the amount of equity available from the property to distribute to encumbrancers – and the borrower.
