Vigorous Defense When Lending Practices Are Under Fire

When debtors start blaming you for their inability to pay their debt, you need skilled legal representation to defend your lending practices. Current lending regulations are complex and ever-changing. When lenders find themselves on the defensive end of a legal battle, they often don’t know where to start.

The legal team at Delev & Associates can help. We take a serious, professional approach to every creditor matter, including defending you against lender liability claims. Creditors’ rights and its related fields are all we do, and we do it well. As an experienced firm for financial lenders and bankers, our lawyers are prepared to provide aggressive litigation defense for claims of misconduct against the lender, loan servicer, fiduciary or financial institution.

Common examples of lender liability claims include:

  • Breach of contract claim — borrowers may accuse lenders of not living up to the terms of the loan agreement
  • Breach of a fiduciary relationship — some borrowers try to allege that the lender owed them a fiduciary duty
  • Fraud charges — these claims often arise when the borrower alleges the lender made verbal assurances to entice signing the loan document that was not part of the contract and not honored
  • Inappropriate sale of collateral — for selling collateral too soon after the default of a loan

You must make sure you are following all legal requirements when you pursue debt collection. We will ensure that you are following every regulation in your lending and collections practices so that future lender liability claims will have no traction in court.
