Foreclosure Law Lawyers In Schuyler Virginia

Schuyler (SKY-lur) is an unincorporated community in Nelson County, (with some addresses also in Albemarle County), Virginia, United States, close to Scottsville. In 1882, the community—originally "Walker's Mill" -- was named for Schuyler George Walker, local mill operator, and the area's first Postmaster. In the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, the town became a small industrial center with the establishment of a stone cutting plant for the area quarries of the Alberene Stone Company, which took the native and acid-resistant soap stone and milled the rock into flat table tops for labs and hospitals. The Great Depression essentially destroyed this industry and the area never fully recovered. Schuyler was the birthplace and home of writer Earl Hamner Jr. He is best known for the CBS television series The Waltons, which was based on his experiences of growing up the eldest child of a large rural family in depression era America. The region suffered greatly from the remnants of Hurricane Camille, which dumped two and three feet of rain in the area in August 1969. The flooding and landslides are a major weather event of the late 20th Century.

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.
