Deed in Lieu in San Diego
Deed in Lieu vs. Alternatives
A deed in lieu of foreclosure involves the homeowner voluntarily signing over the deed to the property to the lender. This can be of benefit to both parties:
- It saves the lender the trouble and expense of pursuing foreclosure proceedings.
- It saves the homeowner from a foreclosure and its public listing.
In some cases, homeowners pursue a deed in lieu of foreclosure in order to avoid having to file for bankruptcy. Each individual situation, however, differs as to which approach would carry the most liability or be most beneficial. A short sale is another possible option along with deed in lieu, foreclosure, and even bankruptcy. If you are in the situation where you need to take drastic action to recover from a mortgage you can no longer service, a San Diego bankruptcy lawyer can help. An attorney can provide invaluable and impartial advice as to what options you have available and how each would relate to your particular circumstances.
