Facts: Our client fell behind on his mortgage payments. He later received a demand letter from the mortgage servicer giving him a deadline by which to pay the outstanding amount before his home would be foreclosed. Our client timely made the payment, but the mortgage servicer went forward with the foreclosure and began the eviction process. We filed a wrongful foreclosure lawsuit alleging that he had performed. The eviction was stayed and we negotiated with the mortgage company to reinstate his mortgage.
Result: Title to client’s home was returned to him and his mortgage was reinstated after he paid the outstanding amounts
Amount Client Received: Client’s attorney’s fees in the amount of $6,000 were deducted from the outstanding mortgage payments
