Keep an Eye on Your Mortgage Company and Their Locksmith

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Recently it has become common practice for mortgage lenders to keep an eye on their investments once they near foreclosure.  Sometimes, the lender sends out a realtor to appraise and review the property and occasionally the lender authorizes their agent to change the locks to secure and protect their investment.

Lenders supposedly instruct their agents to secure only abandoned property, but the locksmith is no doubt under a financial incentive to change locks – surely he is paid more when he finds an abandoned property and has to add on hardware to his bill.

These actions are blatantly illegal, and yet they have become commonplace. In a recent case in Sarasota, Florida, the lender even locked up the wrong property!  Chaos ensued.  You own your property until it is sold on the courthouse steps, and even after that, you may have rights; however courts frequently turn a blind eye to these home invasions because usually no one cares.

The moral of the story is to Stand Up for Yourself!  If you have been victimized by your mortgage lender in this way, please call our Orange County bankruptcy law firm or another attorney to ensure and enforce your rights.
