Bankruptcy & Home Retention Services
Bartifay Law Offices, P.C. provides Chapter 13 bankruptcy services for those facing mortgage foreclosure, where a three to five year reorganization plan is implemented that allows for payment of mortgage arrearages over time. Chapter 13 may also benefit those with high automobile loan payments, secondary mortgages on over-encumbered property, and tax debt.

In addition, Bartifay Law Offices, P.C. provides Chapter 7 bankruptcy services to assist with elimination of unsecured business or consumer debt. Bartifay Law Offices, P.C. can also represent clients in mortgage modification negotiations, either within or outside of bankruptcy.

Short sale transactions can benefit sellers by providing relocation credit cash out at closing of approximately $3,000.00 and eliminating personal liability for the deficiencies on the mortgage notes and judgments. Buyers benefits because real estate can be purchased at below market value.

Bartifay Law Offices, P.C. provides short sale representation, which takes the obligation for processing the short sale application from the listing agent, along with any potential liability for failure to correctly represent the seller's interests.

Attorney Bartifay has successfully negotiated hundreds of short sale agreements with mortgage lenders. He will appear at your realtor offices in order to present an educational seminar entitled "The Pitfalls of Short Sales", which takes approximately 30 minutes and provides real estate agents with a basic understanding of short sale transactions.

In most cases, the attorney fees can be paid from the closing proceeds with no out-of-pocket contribution from the seller. Attorney Bartifay does prefer for his settlement agency, Attorney Partner Settlement Services, L.P. to perform the closing services due to his familiarity with short sale transactions.

Please feel free to contact Attorney Bartifay directly with questions about short sales generally or with specific questions about a particular short sale transaction, or to schedule a short sale educational seminar at your offices.

Bartifay Law Offices, P.C. provides legal services in real estate matters for:

* Oil and gas title opinions
* Representation of parties in residential or commercial real estate transactions
* Quiet title and partition actions

* Estate administration (necessary where the seller has died)
preparation of legal documents such as power-of-attorney instruments, deeds, installment land contracts, mortgages, mortgage notes, mortgage satisfaction pieces, judgment releases, and waiver of mechanics liens

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

No practice area is as rewarding for an attorney than bankruptcy and home retention. I really enjoy assisting individuals in overcoming financial crisis and retaining their homes.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I had to work my way through college and spent several years as a coach and exercise physiologist before attending law school. I know what it's like to try hard, but not have enough money to pay all creditors. I can sympathize with my clients in economic distress.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We have a small staff and a small number of clients and provide personalized service. We are affordable compared with our competition and work with our clients to develop payment plans that fit their budgets. In most cases, a large deposit is not required before we commence services. We will order the credit counseling courses and credit report for your and attempt to make the process as simple and streamlined as possible.
