Stop Foreclosure on Your Home

The first thing you should do if you miss a payment on your home is contact your lender and discuss your situation. Many people try to avoid their lenders, but this is the worst thing you can do. Believe it or not, your lender doesn’t want to foreclose on your home because foreclosure proceedings are expensive. If you communicate with your lender, they may be able to offer you options to resolve your payment problems. Your lender may also suggest alternatives, such as a loan modification, which can prevent foreclosure

Stop Foreclosure on Your Home

The Foreclosure Process

The Foreclosure process in judicial states begins when you miss a payment on your home. After your first missed payment, your lender will contact you by mail or phone to notify you of your missed payment. Within a few weeks of your first missed payment, fees will begin to apply to your mortgage. If you are unable to make any mortgage payments for three consecutive months, your lender will usually give you a 30 day period to make up your missed payments. If you cannot pay what you owe within the 30 days your lender will begin a foreclosure action against you.

The Foreclosure Process


Foreclosure laws vary from state to state; a state is either “judicial” or “non-judicial”. In judicial states like Florida, your lender must file a foreclosure action against you and process the foreclosure through the court system. Non-judicial states do not require the lender to pursue foreclosure through the courts and these foreclosures generally occur quicker than judicial state foreclosures.
