HOW DO I STOP FORECLOSURE? Most people are never faced with this question, so if it comes around they are confused as to what they should do next. Stopping foreclosure sounds impossible. It may be easy to hide from your lender and eventually walk away, but that may not be in your best interest. Instead, you should consider all your options, such as the three strategies detailed below: 1. Negotiate with your lender. It is a common misconception that mortgage lenders enjoy the foreclosure process. The truth is that lenders hate this, as they often times lose money. Not to mention the fact that they are in the business of lending money, not owning real estate. Reach out to your lender to discuss your situation. They

This can lower your monthly obligation, thus allowing you to make your payment in full and on time in the future. 2. Refinance your mortgage. This is not an option for every homeowner, but could be just what you need to avoid foreclosure and get back on your feet. This starts with examining your situation. This includes the value of your home, the balance of your loan, and how far behind you are on payments. At that point, you can contact your lender to discuss your intentions to refinance. Note: you need to find another lender that can assist with the refinancing of your current loan. Give yourself enough time to find the right lender.

This can be scary in its own right. If you throw bankruptcy into the equation, you may be converned about what the future holds. But don’t turn your head to this idea just yet. Bankruptcy will not prevent foreclosure indefinitely, but it will buy you some time. With Chapter 13 however, for example, you can save your home by making payments to your lender through a repayment plan. DON’T DELAY IN MAKING A MOVE As soon as you realize you are in trouble, as soon as you get the feeling that foreclosure is coming, you need to examine your options and decide what to do next. Don’t delay in making your next move, as you still have time to save your home. If you stop foreclosure today, such as through one of the strategies detailed above, you will find yourself in a better position in the future.
