LSNV News
         LSNV Provides Comprehensive Foreclosure Assistance

LSNV's Foreclosure Legal Assistance Project is designed to provide holistic legal assistance for those who are facing foreclosure on their homes. Northern Virginia has experienced some of the highest rates of foreclosure in the nation. In response to this crisis, LSNV’s Foreclosure Legal Assistance Project provides legal advice and housing counseling to low-income homeowners facing foreclosure. Traditional housing counseling programs typically do not provide legal advice to clients, and legal services organizations generally focus on the legal aspects of foreclosure. By contrast, LSNV offers services that address the full range of a client’s needs. In addition to assistance with the foreclosure itself, LSNV also offers clients services addressing related issues such as public benefits and employment disputesand bankruptcy. Potential clients seeking to make an appointment with the Foreclosure Legal Assistance Project (FLAP) should call LSNV at (703) 778-6800.



Our Clients

A client came to LSNV for assistance on a post-foreclosure eviction matter. The client has two children that she cares for, and brings in little income to support her family. Her husband moved to Bangladesh to look for work, and the family could not afford the mortgage on just the client's income. LSNV attorneys were successful in negotiating an arrangement that would allow the client to stay another five weeks in the home and to receive $3,250 in a cash for keys agreement. The client moved out per the agreement and received the cash to cover her moving expenses. She and her children are currently renting an affordable apartment.
