Why You Might Need an Expert Witness for Wrongful Foreclosure
Your home is meant to be your safe place that you come back to every night and where you take care of your family. You work hard and pay your mortgage on time, but the servicer is saying you must vacate for reasons that don't make sense to you. What do you do?
What is Wrongful Foreclosure?
If you have been forced out of your home because your mortgage servicer has foreclosed on it, but you have done nothing wrong, you may have a case for wrongful foreclosure. This can happen when the servicer forges signatures on loan documents, or alters the documents after they've been signed. They use these fraudulent documents as proof that you have not stuck to the agreement and then force you out of your home. If you feel this has happened to you, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney to review your case and represent you in court.
How an Expert Witness Can Help
An expert witness is an impartial third party that works for the court to provide facts and authoritative opinions on a matter that the average jury member would not have prior knowledge of. In a wrongful foreclosure case, the expert witness could explain the process of loan origination so the jury can determine if fraud has taken place or not. An expert witness can be a valuable piece of evidence in your case, but remember that this person does not work for you or the other party, they are present to serve the court.
