This handbook is an essential resource for attorneys defending homeowners against abusive lending practices.
This handbook discusses the types of mortgage lending and servicing practices generally regarded as predatory and the legal challenges available to the homeowner. It will help you determine whether there has actually been a default and whether the predatory lender has a claim; master the workings of the Illinois Mortgage Foreclosure Law; recognize the most common predatory lending and servicing practices; learn numerous federal, state, and local potential remedies for such predatory practices; and establish the liability of assignees and holders. Sample editable complaints, letters, and other valuable forms are also included to save you drafting time and speed up your work.
