Q: I have bad credit, should I even bother?
A: Yes. Most homeowners who have fallen behind on house payments have
experienced some credit problems in the past. We can provide assistance regardless of credit.
Q: My mortgage company sent back my payment, Why?
A: Many lenders will refuse to accept any payment unless it is the entire
amount you are behind (including late, collection & legal fees) once you miss just one payment. The difficult part is sending it back to you often causes you to get further behind. Once foreclosure proceedings have started your lender will not accept any payment less
than the full amount that is in arrears, including foreclosure costs and legal fees.
Q: Someone stopped by the house, what is happening?
A: Lenders & investors often have representatives perform a site
inspection to evaluate the condition of the property and verify occupancy. Don’t
Q: I am behind on payments, how much time do I have before foreclosure?
A: Foreclosure time varies according to state law. Time is not your friend when you’re behind on payments. You need to take action. With our help you can avoid foreclosure procedures from starting or stop the foreclosure if its already
begun. The longer you wait, the more you will pay in court costs, late charges, and attorney fees.
Q: Do you provide help with my credit card bills or auto loans?
A: Not directly. We specialize with one thing, bringing your mortgage
current and stopping foreclosure.
Q: How long does it take for a case to be completed, once I am approved?
A. Your case could be completed in as little as 2 days or stretched
out up to 10 weeks depending on your financial situation. The length of time for a workout approval may also largely be dependant
on the reason for your default.
Q: Can you really resolve my foreclosure?
A. The rare case that we can not resolve is the situation in
which a client does not provide accurate information regarding their financial situation (example - bankruptcy, financial
data, taxes, or employment).
Q: Is there time to stop my foreclosure?
A. Until the auction occurs there is enough time for a homeowner
to stop their foreclosure. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE, and action should be taken as soon as possible. Under normal circumstances,
a foreclosure can be stopped through Foreclosure Assistance's mediation services in approximately 4-6 weeks. For homeowners
with a sale date set for their property, the process moves much more quickly. We have even stopped foreclosure the same day
we were contacted. Your situation can be resolved up until the day before the sale, but it is highly recommended to act as
quickly as possible.
