Bank of America to Freeze Foreclosures in all 50 States

by Rodney Forbes on October 11, 2010

Following the announcement that Bank of America would join other major lenders in freezing foreclosure proceedings in certain states, including Florida, Bank of America now has decided to expand the freeze to all 50 states. BofA is using this time to review foreclosure documents on thousands of cases that have recently come under criticism of shoddy record keeping.

What does this mean if your home happens to be in the foreclosure process? This is not a free pass to stay in the home forever, or a “get out of jail free card”. These cases will resume as documents are reviewed. This does give you time to look for an alternative solution to foreclosure, such as short sale or loan modification.

If you live in the south Florida area you can contact Forbes Realty of South Florida to discuss your options. Forbes Realty, based out of West Palm Beach Florida, specializes in short sale help for homeowners.
