Bringing Order to Show Cause with Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) vs. "Produce the Note" Suit to Postpone Foreclosure Sale

Question: My home has a pending foreclosure for next week. My lender is willing to modify my loan for a significant down payment, the full amount of which I will only have in two weeks. They are unwilling to extend my deadline for that long. Can I file a "Produce the Note" suit to buy me the extra time needed to complete the loan modification?

Response: Generally, when a foreclosure sale date is scheduled, the banks are unwilling to do a loan modification unless you can request to postpone the public foreclosure sale date. Whether they will consent or not is in the bank's discretion but they will generally agree to it if your loan modification process is active and likely to happen. Also, if the bank is unwilling to do that, you can bring an Order to Show Cause with a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) through the court and have the judge make a determination on an emergency basis. Most likely, judges will grant these petitions, especially if you can show them good faith on your part in trying to save your home.
