Rules of Professional Conduct Applicable to Attorneys Providing Services to Distressed Homeowners. Why are foreclosure consultants and attorneys teaming up to defraud homeowners experiencing mortgage-related distress? Individuals acting as “foreclosure consultants” are not entitled to receive payment until their loan modification work is completed. However, attorneys are permitted to accept advance fees for providing typical legal services. As a consequence, some foreclosure consultants and others offering foreclosure prevention services may partner with attorneys in an effort to get around laws that prohibit them from receiving payments from homeowners before providing the foreclosure prevention services. Homeowners should know that these partnering arrangements may violate the ethics rules governing attorneys’ professional conduct in YOUR State. To date, the many State Bar offices have not instituted specific loan modification scam regulations or initiatives.

Lawyers often cannot aid a foreclosure consultant in the unauthorized practice of law. For example, Oregon lawyers may not form partnerships with foreclosure consultants if any of the activities of any such business would involve providing legal services. Lawyers often cannot contact distressed homeowners referred to them by foreclosure consultants unless the lawyers have a family or prior professional relationship with the distressed homeowners so contacted. Lawyers often cannot accept fees for little or no work.
