  1. Very interesting article regarding Foreclosure defense.
    Simply, foreclosure is the process by which a homeowner's rights to a property are forfeited because of failure to pay the mortgage. If the owner cannot pay off the outstanding debt or sell it via short sale, the property then goes to a foreclosure auction.Foreclosure Attorney Bloomfield NJ
