Foreclosures and Short Sales in Illinois
In Illinois, there are many commercial and residential real estate properties that are “under water” – or worth less than is owed on the mortgage. Many of these properties end up in foreclosure. Foreclosure can be avoided in some circumstances, however, if a short sale can be arranged. Our attorneys are highly skilled in handling foreclosures and short sales. We can guide you through the process of either a foreclosure or a short sale and make sure your interests are protected along the way.
