Life is full of surprises. Sometimes, events beyond our control interfere with our best intentions – like paying our bills. Luckily, there’s help for homeowners who face challenges in making their payments.
If you’re at risk, it’s important to realize you are not alone. Millions of homeowners face foreclosure each year. If you are having difficulty making your payments, your first course of action should be to contact your servicer as soon as possible. Whether you intend to sell your home or stay in it, your servicer can help with a variety of programs to support your goals.
Resources for Every Homeowner
Foreclosure isn’t good for anyone. That’s why the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offers resources to help homeowners find the best solutions for their unique circumstances.
Be cautious of those who claim they could help – sadly, there are scams that take advantage of homeowners in need. Only trust your servicer or HUD-approved counseling agencies when seeking information.
