a homeowner, you have rights when it comes to foreclosure of
your home. You need to make sure that you understand and
protect those rights because no one else will do it for you.
As with many aspects of foreclosure, what it comes down to is
The best place to start is with your state and local
government websites. Go to your state's website and just type
in foreclosure in the search box on their website. Whatever
results you get will at least be a starting point in helping
you understand your foreclosure rights in your state. Every
state has different laws concerning foreclosure so make sure
that you educate yourself about what those laws are.
It is also helpful to go to the website for your county and
city. Again, type in the word foreclosure in the search box
for the website in your city and for the website in your
county. Here again, whatever results you get will give you a
better understanding of your foreclosure rights. It
might also be helpful to type in foreclosure law into the
search box on the websites for your state, city and county.
Your city, county and/or state may also have free resources
to help you during foreclosure. Doing these searches on those
websites will also help you find these free resources that can
help you. Some states, cities and/or counties have free
hotline services that allow you to talk to credit counselors
for free. Going through this process can help you get a
realistic picture of your financial situation and gives you
ideas of where you can cut back on your spending. Some areas
also offer free foreclosure classes that can give you a better
idea of what your foreclosure rights are for your area.
Depending on where you live, you might be able to get
information about your foreclosure from a local government
website. Some sites even have all of the
documents related to your foreclosure, information about the
lawyers who are representing your mortgage company, and
you might even be able to verify that the foreclosure sale on
you home has been stopped.
This kind of information may be available to you through the
internet. It is definitely worth a little time and research to
see if it is. It can give you a much better handle on your
foreclosure rights and how to stop
mortgage foreclosure on your home.
