Mortgage Debt Buyers—like the Junk Debt Buyers who buy “Zombie” debt—buy up old debt from mortgages, home equity loans, and home equity lines of credit (or HELOCs). Then they try to collect on this debt even if you’ve already lost your home to foreclosure. This means that, even if you’ve lost your house, you may be receiving letters and harassing phone calls from a collection agency or a mortgage debt buyer.
We help Michigan consumers fight unfair mortgage debt collection practices by creditor banks, mortgage debt buyers and other debt collectors including Ocwen, Bayview, Green Tree, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Trott & Trott, Potestivo, and Schneiderman & Sherman.
Mortgage debt buyers may purchase the debt formerly owed on your house note even after foreclosure. Then they try to collect without full information on whether you still actually owe the debt. Many also use debt collection practices—like constant phone calls, threats, and approaching your family members or employers—that are unlawful under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Banks or debt buyers may call or sue you to collect on an old home equity loan or line of credit even after your home was foreclosed. But many don’t even have enough documentation to legally collect. And many try to collect even if the statute of limitations for collection has passed. We can help you. Send us any paperwork you receive, ASAP.
Mortgage debt buyers are hoping for one of two things: to intimidate you into paying or to win a lawsuit against you by default. That is, they hope you won’t respond when they sue, so the court will rule against you without even hearing your side of the story.
Act fast and don’t let them win: We will review your case for free, stop harassment by debt collectors, and defend you in court. Even if there is some outstanding valid debt, we can settle or eliminate it. And, if they’ve violated the FDCPA or state debt collections laws, we will make them pay you.
