Danbury Foreclosure Attorneys

Despite governmental programs and bank promises of modification and homeowner assistance, the Danbury foreclosure system is experiencing an increase in new foreclosures. These new foreclosures join an overwhelming caseload of old or stagnant foreclosures left seriously dormant on the Danbury foreclosure docket.

Prompt and effective legal assistance, mediation requests and overall debt relief are the key elements to successful home ownership.

The critical steps to long-term success remain:

The foreclosure solutions provided by big banks and government programs have been universally reported as largely unsuccessful. The long series of ineffective new government programs have helped bail out big banks but haven't helped struggling Connecticut residents. Mortgage modification and foreclosure mediation have failed to help many Danbury homeowners.

Instead, at The Law Offices of Neil Crane, we offer comprehensive and effective solutions based on our experience and your specific circumstances. We know all the options available for saving homes in Connecticut. We've been helping Danbury homeowners since 1983.

If you are behind on payments or already in foreclosure, contact us in Danbury for a free consultation. Call 203-230-2233 or 888-249-3027 toll free.

Our attorneys know how to assist you in successfully mediating your mortgage while obtaining the other forms of debt relief necessary to a sound financial future.

Danbury Foreclosure Numbers and Foreclosure Mediation

The Danbury foreclosure system has seen just under 2,500 foreclosures in the city of Danbury over the past five years.*

Over 21% of all foreclosures commenced in Danbury over the past five years have resulted in a foreclosure deed — a lost home. This high lost home rate has continued despite the institution of mandatory mediation. Despite government programs aimed at helping homeowners, over 500 homes have been lost to foreclosure in Danbury since the housing meltdown began in 2007.

During this same period of record foreclosures, the Danbury real estate market for single family homes has declined approximately 30%. The market for Danbury multifamily properties has dropped precipitously. Two- and three-family homes that once averaged approximately $455,000 in 2007 had a 2011 average sales price of $214,000 — a drop of over $240,000 or more than a 52% loss in value.
