Facing foreclosure can be scary, overwhelming, and confusing. For many people, home ownership is the fulfillment of a life-long dream, and the idea of foreclosure—of losing the home they worked so hard for—is like a waking nightmare. Many people facing foreclosure assume that all hope is lost, and their house is as good as gone.
Fortunately, this is not the case. Homeowners facing the threat of foreclosure can often prevent that foreclosure from ever taking place. As a homeowner, you have rights, and many of those rights are set up to help give you a chance to save your home if you run into financial hardship. In addition, many mortgage servicers can be negotiated with and persuaded to offer options like temporary deferment, repayment plans, and loan modification, all of which can help you get back on track and prevent foreclosure.
Often, it is very difficult for the average person to understand and act on their rights as a homeowner, especially when it comes to something as complex—as well as serious and high-stakes—as preventing foreclosure. It is even more difficult if not impossible for the average person to understand the obligations of their mortgage provider and to negotiate effectively to prevent foreclosure, especially if a mortgage provider has already decided to pursue foreclosure.
