Foreclosure Defense Options for Massachusetts Residents
In 2012, in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the Massachusetts legislature passed a law that made it more difficult for banks and lenders to foreclose on homeowners. If a lender fails to follow specific, legally-required steps before foreclosing on you, then you may be able to invalidate the foreclosure.
There have even been recent developments on this front. In 2019, a court case involving a mortgage lender and a homeowner changed foreclosure defense cases statewide. In this case, the lender (Chase Bank) sent a misleading preforeclosure notice. Because it was deceptive, the court ruled that the foreclosure was invalid. The court decision has provided consumers with one more foreclosure defense: if a letter notifying you of a breach of your mortgage contract was confusing or misleading, then it may protect you from foreclosure.
This is obviously a recent development in Massachusetts foreclosure law, so speak with an attorney to learn your specific options.
