Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
" Bankruptcy attorney Elias targets the estimated two million American homeowners who are currently in default on their mortgages. Elias explains how foreclosure works, what options there may be for keeping a home when in default, and what to do when that is not possible. He includes instruction on negotiating a workout with a lender as well as chapters on how to use bankruptcy to avoid foreclosure. Elias's section on fighting foreclosure in the courts helps readers understand the circumstances in which they may be able to delay or stop a foreclosure action. The appendixes provide summaries of each state's foreclosure laws, a glossary, and information on finding and working with lawyers and bankruptcy petition preparers. Straightforward and timely, this is recommended for most public libraries."  Library Journal

"Elias, a practicing attorney, former Nolo associate publisher and current president of the National Bankruptcy Law Project, advises that readers not panic. "Even if the lender does foreclose on the house, the process takes months at the least. You're going to have time to evaluate your options and make smart choices." Publishers Weekly

“Steve Elias’s proven ability to demystify law is exactly what those facing foreclosure need.”  Jim C. Turner, Former Executive Director, Halt
