What Are The Nuances Associated With Home Ownership?
July 23, 2020
Home ownership is one of the great American dreams. Very little compares to the pride of home ownership. It gives one the status of being in the middle class. One that has provided security and comfort for the homeowner’s family and self.
For most of us to buy a home or other real estate requires obtaining a mortgage.
At the closing when buying property or even if one is refinancing an existing mortgage you are presented with volumes of documents. You are supposed to review these documents. Your signature is required multiple times.
The lawyers and the personnel at the title company will answer questions about the contents. Their answers are perfunctory.
In truth very few really know the contents of these documents in detail.
There are, however, a group of people who do know and understand the contents of these documents in intimate detail. Likewise, they know and understand the laws that govern mortgages and they even know the protections that homeowners and property owners have. These people are, of course, employees of the mortgage companies and their battalions of lawyers.
The laws surrounding mortgages, the volumes on documents you sign, and the rules and regulations have for the most part been crafted by the banks and finance companies.
The banking industry sends armies of lobbyists to Washington, D.C. and to Springfield. And, they spend big money wining and dining and persuading lawmakers to do their bidding.
When the property owners come into conflict with mortgage companies the American dream turns into a nightmare.
Fortunately homeowners and property owners have rights and protections. You should know what they are.
One of the greatest protections property owners have lay in the American bankruptcy laws.
The greatest fear a homeowner or other property owners has in FORECLOSURE. For that reason I decided that the first chapter of the book should outline the foreclosure process in Illinois. Subsequent chapters will deal with solutions and options for you.
This book lays out a general discussion of the laws relative to mortgages when there is a conflict. The main focus of the publications is, of course, to give advice on the use of our bankruptcy laws. Our current President has said that bankruptcy is a tool. He should know as at least 5 of his business have obtained relief in the Bankruptcy Courts. You too should know that this tool is available if and when you should take advantage of it.
The lawyers and staff at ROBERT J ADAMS & ASSOCIATES have devoted their careers to helping people just like you.
