Preventing Foreclosure Through An Appeal
Home foreclosures are incredibly stressful. They also involve a significant imbalance of power. The bank or lending institution pursuing the foreclosure has a robust legal team. Homeowners and property owners need a high caliber of legal counsel on their side as well.
At Hunker Appeals, we provide appellate services for homeowners and property owners seeking to challenge a foreclosure decision. As a boutique appellate law practice, we offer significant experience in this niche area of law. Our founding lawyer is board-certified in appellate law through The Florida Bar. Clients benefit from this in-depth level of knowledge regarding appellate procedures and effective appellate advocacy.
Grounds For A Successful Foreclosure Appeal
Pinpointing strong grounds for appeal is critical to success in any appellate case, including foreclosure defense. Those grounds might include:
- Procedural errors on the part of the bank, lender or lower court
- Errors in interpreting the law
- Misinterpretations or gaps in the mortgage terms
- Gray areas in the law that haven’t been addressed
A single successful appeal on an issue that hasn’t yet been clarified by the appellate courts could make a significant impact not only in that case, but extending to other property owners facing foreclosure as well.
