Foreclosure Law Lawyers In Newington Virginia

Newington is a census-designated place (CDP) in affluent, suburban Fairfax County, Virginia, United States. The population was 19,784 at the 2000 census. While the ZIP code for Newington is 22122, this is only for delivery points within the post office itself. Homes and businesses in the CDP have Springfield or Lorton street addresses. The area is poised for a great challenge as the U.S. Army in 2006 announced controversial plans to relocate 16,000 personnel positions to the Fort Belvoir Proving Ground in the new few years as part of the Base Realignment and Closure program, despite already gridlocked traffic and inadequate public transportation services in the neighborhood.

What is foreclosure law?

Foreclosure is the cutting off or termination of a right to property to compel payment of a mortgage or other debt secured by a lien. As to real property, like a house or land, foreclosure is started because of non-payment of the debt and leads to the selling of the property to which the mortgage or lien is attached in order to satisfy that debt. Lawyers who assist with foreclosure issues help struggling homeowners consider their options -- both foreclosure and foreclosure alternatives -- and determine the best course of action. Foreclosure alternatives may include loan modification, short sale, forbearance, reinstatement, and repayment plans.
