Attorney Fees Resulting From A Foreclosure

Are You “Entitled” To Attorney Fees From Your Lender?

Could you be “entitled” to attorney fees as a result of your foreclosure? Well, the answer is, it depends. It depends on a few things, but it all starts with having the right attorney handling your matter from the beginning. While each case is different, there are certain legal requirements that need to be fulfilled during the pendency of your case that, if not properly preserved, can potentially be waived.

There are a variety of reasons why your case may be dismissed, either voluntarily or involuntarily. These reasons may provide an opportunity for you, the homeowner, to request attorney fees from your lender, as the “prevailing party”. I have seen these scenarios happening more and more frequently, however, many attorneys don’t know that their clients are entitled to attorney fees when a case is dismissed. Attorneys and clients alike are content enough with having a case dismissed—for the time being. But why stop there? The bank certainly receives a judgment for attorney fees when they are the prevailing party, and so should you!

Having the right attorneys who preserve your rights and put you in the best possible scenario, if and when the situation presents itself, is worth its weight in gold. It could mean the difference between receiving nothing and receiving thousands of dollars in attorney fees you are “entitled” to. Each case is different. Prevailing in your individual case is never guaranteed. Make sure you have attorneys on your side that are not just satisfied with the bare minimum results. You need an attorney on your side that has the experience and the knowledge to get the best possible results.
