Saving your home from wrongful foreclosure
You worked hard to purchase your dream home. When unexpected circumstances occur that put your home at risk of foreclosure, you can take crucial steps to ensure that your lender complies with its legal duties. Raymond L. Sandelman Attorney at Law combines innovative strategies with fierce determination to defend your right to keep your home. When selling your home presents the better option, the firm guides you toward the most advantageous situation. Some means of protecting your home include use of:

  • Mortgage modification
  • Loan forbearance
  • Short sale
  • Deed in lieu of foreclosure
  • Lawsuit

Defending your right against government’s abuse of power
Eminent domain is the power of the government to take private property for public use. The process involves condemnation of your property, appraisal of its value, an offer to purchase and negotiation for a fair price. If the government offers an unsatisfactory amount of compensation or if your property was improperly designated for public use, you can sue to halt the eminent domain process or to receive the compensation you deserve. Raymond L. Sandelman zealously protects clients’ property from eminent domain abuses.

Resolving an eviction crisis
Eviction is disruptive to both the landlord and the tenant. The landlord must spend the time and money to replace tenants who fall behind on rent, and displaced families must find and locate to a new home, under traumatic circumstances. With this scenario in mind, Raymond L. Sandelman helps mediate disputes when eviction is undesirable. If you are a tenant who unfairly faces eviction, he protects your right to remain in your home. If you are a landlord whose tenants are engaged in disruptive, illegal or damaging behavior, he helps you to protect your property and your business.

Alternative dispute resolutions (ADR)
ADR refers to other means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. Some contracts require binding arbitration or nonbinding mediation to resolve disputes that arise out of the transaction governed by the agreement. When the cost and time of litigation exceed the likely outcome, you may choose to settle instead. If negotiating a settlement, Raymond L. Sandelman’s tenacity directs the proceedings toward a desirable outcome.
