What is Wrongful Foreclosure?

When a mortgage company starts foreclosure proceedings when it has no legal right to so, or when it fails to comply with the legal requirements for foreclosing, such as providing proper notice to the borrower, it has committed wrongful foreclosure.

When this happens, Alabama Law gives the borrower the right to sue for damages and, under some circumstances, to set aside the foreclosure and recover the property.
