Mortgage & Housing Attorneys in Chicago
Defending Homeowners & Renters throughout Illinois
At Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin, LLC, our lawyers can help you put an end to the endless runaround you may face when attempting to solve a problem with your mortgage company or landlord.
Large mortgage companies are prone to errors. Similarly, landlords and property management companies can be unreliable and even unethical. When consumers try to get these problems resolved on their own, they are faced with what seems to be a brick wall. We can help you break down that wall and seek a favorable resolution to your problem.
If your mortgage company or landlord is causing a problem that you have been unable to solve on your own, the Chicago mortgage and housing attorneys at ECLG can stand by your side. We offer a contingency basis for most cases so you will not owe us anything unless we successfully resolve your case. Click here to see our case results.

Can My Mortgage Company Refuse Payment from Me?
Your mortgage company may refuse payment if you have started the foreclosure process for your home. If they refuse payment your mortgage will go unpaid and the foreclosure process will begin if it hasn’t already. They must contact you prior to negotiate options to avoid losing the home. If they refuse payment before you have started your foreclosure, call a lawyer. The experienced debt attorney at Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin LLC is here to help you through the process.
