How Houston Cash-For-Keys Programs Work

As eviction and foreclosure defense attorneys in Houston, Texas, Jarrett Law Firm, PLLC understands the entire process to protect you and your credit through the cash for keys program

The Houston cash for keys program is simple and straight forward. You give the keys, deed, and possession of the property back to the mortgage lender/bank and in turn, as incentive to leave peacefully, they pay you cash. When you chose this option you also agree to forego fighting an eviction in court.

If this is the option you are considering there are a few things you must know.

What is in a cash for keys program in Houston, Texas?

If you have had enough and have decided your home is not worth keeping, you can try to acquire cash for keys in Houston, Texas with your lender. Cash for keys, in actuality, is a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure. This is where the homeowner signs an agreement to surrender the deed of the property to the lender.

This is where it gets tricky. Any agreement for cash for keys in Texas should include a stipulation stating that the bank will not go after you for any deficiency judgment.

One thing to remember, the lender is not legally responsible to waive the remaining balance. In turn, you should have an experienced foreclosure attorney negotiate on your behalf to ensure that the bank cannot file a lawsuit for any remaining balance of the mortgage.
