Strategic Default – Don’t Immediately Walk Away
We Can Help You
We believe that walking away from a home, otherwise known as a “Strategic Default”, is not the preferred method of dealing with an upside down home or mortgage foreclosure due in part to deficiency judgment and credit issues. In most instances, we recommend to clients to short sale the home, if mortgage modification has failed or is otherwise unavailable as an option, due in part to the amount of time it currently takes to complete the foreclosure process. If you are thinking about a strategic default, Sackrin & Tolchinsky, P.A. can help you.
Read: Walking away from your Home Mortgage – Not without Consequences
We understand that there are moral issues related to strategic defaults, but we also understand everyone has to protect their own financial interest. This is true especially in light of the fact that some mortgage lenders did not fulfill their obligations to make sure that borrowers could afford the home they were buying and that the home was properly appraised.
