We can help you if you are in Foreclosure

18 Mar

The Lee County Foreclosure Task Force is dedicated to educating and helping homeowners in foreclosure along with helping to preserve their rights of due process. 98% of all homeowners do nothing to contest foreclosure and thus they waive all of their legal defenses.

Through community workshops we educate homeowners of their foreclosure rights and resources that can assist them.  The feedback has been extremely positive.  CLICK HERE to jump to our Workshop page for more details.

Here’s what a couple of our recent workshop attendees had to say…

Thanks so much to you and your colleagues for a very enjoyable and informative discussion about Florida foreclosure issues at yesterday’s Foreclosure Task Force meeting.. Your clear presentation made absorbing the information you provided easy. I appreciate the service you provided, and I would recommend this meeting to anyone who wants to know as much as possible about foreclosure in Florida and how to deal with aspects of it. – Art K.

I just left the workshop and I have to admit I was embarrassed to be there at first. How could I end up in this situation? I think a lot of people are stopped by that reason, but I’m glad I went. I’m a working class mom and attended the foreclosure workshop get the FREE INFORMATION and feel like I have some of the power back in my life again! – Ann O.

Knowledge is Power! I would have made a bad decision if it was not for the helpful information provided by Lane, Robert and Shannon. You were all very helpful by sharing the pros and cons of bankruptcy, foreclosure and the new laws being passed affecting homeowners. Good job! – Harry L.
