In today's troubled economy, many homeowners know all too well about the looming prospect of foreclosure. Foreclosure is the legal proceeding in which a bank or other secured creditor sells or repossesses a parcel of real property due to the owner's failure to comply with an agreement between the lender and the borrower. Commonly, the violation of the mortgage is a default in payment of a promissory note, secured by a lien on the property.
There are ways a homeowner may be able to avoid or stop a foreclosure, including making a full payment on arrearages owed, devising a mortgage modification plan, getting help through federal assistance programs, and if necessary, filing under chapter 13 bankruptcy, in which homeowners can stop foreclosure proceedings by making payments over an extended period of time.
When faced with a legal issue, especially a serious and time-sensitive issue such as foreclosure, confusing advice on what steps to take is the last thing anyone needs.
