Default Servicing


Loss Mitigation

Loss mitigation in the simplest of terms is foreclosure avoidance. HWA works on behalf of borrowers with lenders to negotiate forbearance agreements, loan modifications or short sale arrangements. Because of our solid expertise in commercial real estate, banking, and litigation, HWA is able to produce customized, compliant solutions that benefit our clients. 


The Default Servicing Practice Area is highly automated and uses an internally developed case management system. Because our case management system is not dependent on third party vendors, we can quickly accommodate changes and new reporting requirements.
