Mortgage Company Payment Delays

Let Our New Orleans Insurance Attorney Help!

If your home suffers tremendous damage or loss as a result of fire, flood, or any other covered catastrophe, your insurance company will send a check payable to both you and your mortgage company, as they have an interest in the property. From there, your mortgage company is required to release the funds to allow you to rebuild your home.

However, some mortgage companies have been known to drag their feet in this process, making homeowners wait excruciatingly long times or releasing the payment in installments, which can prevent you from rebuilding and getting back into your home.

As a New Orleans insurance lawyer, Joey LaHatte of LaHatte Law knows how difficult this can be for you and your family, and he strives to help you get your life back to normal. Attorney LaHatte understands how intimidating it can be to face a mortgage company who could seemingly care less about their customers, and he works tirelessly to protect your rights as a consumer and demand payment when you are the victim of bad faith practices. We take each case seriously, and we never settle for less than you deserve, which is to restore your home and get back on your feet as quickly as possible.

If your mortgage company refuses to release funds to let you rebuild your home, call LaHatte Law today at (504) 509-5177 and review your options with us completely free of charge.

What Can You Do?

A mortgage company unnecessarily delaying payment is not only illegal as a bad faith practice, but can leave you and your family stranded without your home and some of your most valuable possessions. However, many people have no idea where to begin when it comes to obtaining this money they both need and are entitled to. That’s where we come in; Attorney LaHatte can help you get the money you deserve to rebuild your home and get back to your normal life.

LaHatte Law can represent you and pursue the following options against your mortgage company:

  • Sending an official demand letter regarding your claim
  • Analyzing your ability to file a lawsuit
  • Filing a lawsuit
  • Filing a formal complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Attorney LaHatte has gone head-to-head against some of the largest insurance carriers and mortgage companies in the country and is not afraid to stand up for your rights. If you have been wrongfully treated by your mortgage company, and this treatment is preventing you from repairing your home so you can go on with your life, call now and speak with our team.
