With the current foreclosure crisis I am seeing more and more clients who are struggling with keeping their homes. Many times this situation is made all the more worse by a serious injury, such as an automobile accident that keeps them out of work.
Unfortunately in all too many cases the foreclosure situation is made all the more worse by the unlawful conduct of the banks and servicing companies. South Carolina is a judicial foreclosure state - this provides many important protections to South Carolina homeowners facing foreclosure.
Until a South Carolina Court signs an order of foreclosure or grants possession, it is against the law for a bank to trespass into your home, lock you out, take your property or disconnect your utilities. When banks failure to follow the law they are subject to specific claims, including for conversion, forcible entry and detainer and trespass.
If you have suffered due to an unlawful and illegal act conducted as part of a foreclosure we would like to hear from you. Contact the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, at (803) 359-3301.0
