With millions of homeowners forced to consider short sale or foreclosure, loan modification has become big business. Requesting San Mateo County lower your property taxes is one thing – a thing you can do yourself – loan modification is not a do-it-yourself project. You need an expert. And so-called experts have jumped on the bandwagon to offer their services.
The California State Bar Association has had enough. They’re so fed up that they’ve publicly announced the names of some attorneys under investigation.
The California Association of Realtors reports, “These attorneys have allegedly taken fees for promised services, but failed to perform those services or even communicate with their clients who face the possible loss of their homes. Their non-attorney staff may also be under investigation for unlawfully practicing law.”
“Scam artists may intentionally associate or affiliate themselves with attorneys in an attempt to lend credence to their fraudulent schemes.”
While you may need expert advice, you don’t need another problem to deal with so be sure to get the right expert on your side.
