Salt Lake City Mortgage and Foreclosure Attorneys

Resolving Business Legal Matters
Creative • Responsive • Cost-Effective

When a property owner defaults on a mortgage, it results in lost revenue for the lender. That is why we work quickly and provide cost-effective solutions to help collect the money that is owed to you from property owners. Contact our law firm in Salt Lake City, Utah, to learn more about our mortgage-related services:

  • Mortgages: When drafting mortgages, we keep in mind our clients' potential risk for loss if the property owner cannot repay the loan.
  • Loan restructuring: Sometimes it is in a lender's best interest to restructure a loan, rather than foreclose. We protect our clients' interests and assure the terms of the new loan agreement are acceptable to our clients.
  • Promissory notes: Our business law attorneys will walk you through the structuring and signing of promissory notes which form the basis for most loan agreements.
  • Automatic stays and foreclosures: Our firm is experienced in collecting money through the foreclosure process. Not only can we conduct the foreclosure sale, we seek deficiency judgments from the property owners after the sale, where appropriate. In addition, our creditor rights attorneys are experienced in obtaining relief from the automatic stay after a property owner declares bankruptcy, so that the foreclosure process can continue.

Debtor Representation

While we typically represent creditors in mortgage and foreclosure proceedings, we will represent debtors on select occasions. If we cannot represent you, we will refer you to an attorney who can.
