Long Island, Suffolk and Nassau Foreclosure Attorneys
20 Days to Answer a Foreclosure Complaint
After you are served with a notice of foreclosure, you have 20 days to file an answer. This is an opportunity for you to write a defense to foreclosure proceedings. Properly filing an answer to a foreclosure complaint can buy you the time that you need to figure out a valid alternative to foreclosure, or can stop foreclosure proceedings altogether.
While you can file an answer to a foreclosure complaint without an attorney, it is highly recommended that you seek legal assistance. Before filing your answer, discussing your case with an experienced Long Island foreclosure defense attorney means that you will be able to fully understand your rights and options in this regard, and that you will know what to say in your answer. Your attorney can actually file your answer to foreclosure for you, saving you time and ensuring that it is done correctly. Your answer must be valid to have even a chance of being taken seriously by the court.
