Successfully Helping a Servicemember with a Mortgage Foreclosure
A Navy servicemember had been sued for a mortgage foreclosure on the basis of a delinquency on his homeowner’s association dues. The servicemember’s association fees were originally included in his mortgage payments. Then, the servicemember made changes to his mortgage loan, but he was unaware that, after the changes, the association fees were no longer included in his mortgage payments. The servicemember missed two annual association fees, but he did not receive notice of this default until he was sued for mortgage foreclosure. The Military Pro Bono Project found an attorney who offered to help the servicemember. The volunteer attorney was able to get this case dismissed and make new arrangements for future association fees.
