Reverse Mortgage Foreclosure Defense Attorney

Reverse mortgages are becoming an increasingly popular way for aging homeowners to refinance and generate income. Unfortunately, reverse mortgages have many negative pitfalls for the surviving spouse and/or heirs of the borrower, as reverse mortgages are commonly taken out in one person’s name as opposed to jointly. Many reverse mortgage lenders aggressively pursue loan repayment, and even threaten or commence foreclosure actions on the home.

The compassionate attorneys at Hobson-Williams, P.C. understand that the passing of a loved one is emotionally trying, event without the added stress of a complicated reverse mortgage proceeding. They recognize that, more than anything, you simply want to remain living in your home and ensure your finances are in order. The firm is experienced in reverse mortgage foreclosure matters, and have successfully defended clients from lenders so that they can continue living in their homes.

For many surviving spouses and heirs, re-financing to pay off a reverse mortgage is either challenging or impossible. When you fail to repay the loan, lenders often use their seemingly endless resources to pursue actions against you. The legal professionals at Hobson-Williams, P.C. can review the initial terms of the reverse mortgage, and evaluate if the lender violated laws or regulations, or failed to fully advise you of your financial options.

Whether you are a surviving spouse seeking to continue living in your home, or an heir concerned about the burden of selling or refinancing a loved one’s home, Hobson-Williams, P.C. can represent your interests against reverse mortgage lending institutions. If a lender has threatened or commenced foreclosure actions, contact the firm at (718) 210-4744 for a consultation, and learn how the experienced elder law attorneys at Hobson-Williams P.C. can help you keep your home and protect your finances.


“I want to take this time to thank Tanya and Keith for their professionalism and their ability to keep me calm during this process. Tanya was very helpful in explaining the whole guardianship process and my next steps. Despite my numerous emails, I never felt ignored or that they were growing weary of me. Even after being granted guardianship when I had an issue with the bank releasing money Tanya stayed calm and found a way to get what I was entitled to. I hope I never need to do this again but if I do, I will definitely come back to Tanya and her team. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Love from Bermuda.”
