When it comes to foreclosure, you don’t have to face it alone.
A HUD Certified Housing Counselor can be your first line of defense in saving your home. Our Housing Counselors will work with you concerning your situation and help you decide what mortgage options are best for you.
If you have missed any mortgage payments, or are about to miss a payment, or if your loan already has been referred to an attorney for foreclosure, our Housing Counselor can help you assess your circumstances, identify your options and prepare you to talk with your mortgage company and – help is free!
As part of the session, your counselor will help you explore different ways of possibly resolving your mortgage situation. Their objective, like yours, is to find a way to help keep you in your home.
A housing counselor will:
- Explain what documents you will need to provide to your mortgage company and may be able to contact the mortgage company on your behalf
- Help you make a budget so that you can meet your monthly mortgage payment and other expenses
- Provide information about local resources that may be helpful to you
