Homeowners say government 'conspired' to foreclose on them

Homeowners from outside of Florida are alleging a conspiracy between their county government and business interests that, if true, would constitute government fraud and a troubling abuse of power. The plaintiffs have won their day in federal court after a U.S. District Court judge issued a temporary restraining order that will keep three families in their homes until at least mid-January.

New South Florida foreclosures dropped 53% in Nov.

As the backlog of foreclosure cases in South Florida slowly shrinks, fewer new cases are appearing on the docket. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that there were 53 percent fewer new foreclosure filings in November compared with the year before.

How can I stay in my home after a short sale?

For many Florida homeowners going through foreclosure, getting the proceeding dismissed, modifying the mortgage or other options are not available for one reason or another. They may try to sell the home, but find that their home is now worth less than the remaining balance on the mortgage. This is known as being “underwater” and it can mean serious problems for the homeowner.
