Birmingham homeowners often find it difficult to defend their home in a foreclosure procedure due to the fact that the state follows a “nonjudicial foreclosure” procedure. Struggling homeowners who want to contest the foreclosure case could file a lawsuit to the court so a judge could intervene for them to possibly ask for the following:
- Momentarily stop any ongoing foreclosure procedures
- Preliminary injunction
- Permanent injunction
Struggling homeowners who are considering contesting a foreclosure procedure should sue their lender and trustee in court. The judge will then weigh each argument to figure out if the procedure should continue or not. Oftentimes, homeowners could reason to the court that they are likely to suffer an irreparable injury if the foreclosure is completed. Homeowners, however, should know that bringing their case in court could be arduous and expensive.
