Banks must not only follow strict guidelines in initiating foreclosure proceedings but also must obey all applicable laws that govern mortgage lending as a whole. Violations of these laws may constitute violations of homeowners' rights and grant invaluable opportunities to stop foreclosure entirely. For example, homeowners must be served with the lawsuit paperwork.
They have the right to file a response and defend themselves against the bank's complaint. They have the right to raise whatever legal defenses they believe apply to their case, including the bank's right to foreclose in the first place. This may include a failure to properly notify the homeowner of the impending lawsuit or the fact that the bank does not actually own the original mortgage note. The specific strategy may vary depending on the situation at hand.
