Talk to a Counselor
If you are having trouble making your mortgage payment, talk to a counselor who can help you assess your financial situation and work with your lender or servicer to see if you can avoid foreclosure.

Avoid Foreclosure Scams
Non-profit counseling agencies provide free or low cost foreclosure prevention counseling services. There is no need to pay a private company for these services.

Call Homeowners HOPE Hotline at (888) 995-4673
The Homeownership Preservation Foundation provides non-profit HUD-approved counselors across the United States that are dedicated to helping homeowners. These counselors can work with you to avoid foreclosure. www.995hope.org

Make a Budget, Find a Solution
Professionally trained and certified counselors can help you to evaluate your current financial situation. Counselors also will help you to figure out what options are available and help you find a solution.
