  6. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy to retain the home or discharge debt (and potentially disconnect any second mortgage)
  7. Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure (DIL)
  8. Original Loan Review for Potential State/Federal defenses
  9. Allow Foreclosure
  10. Potential combinations of the above
  11. Mortgage Refinance (Note:  RRLG does not offer these services)

Talk to An Attorney

As a law firm, we can point out options that you might not have known exist.  This is why the State of Washington tells you to talk to an attorney to discuss your options:

  • “An attorney can advise you about your options and legal liability”
  • “Before proceeding with a short sale (a seller should) obtain legal advice”;
  • “Legal counsel can help you determine whether a short sale is the best option and can advise you during the short sale process.
