There isn’t much you can do to stop foreclosure on your home once the ball starts rolling. But here are a couple of things to consider.
- Review the information received from your lender or trustee and determine whether you will be able to pay the amount of money required to stop the foreclosure. If so, pay it.
- Ask whether you can work out a compromise to make adjusted payments to the trustee. If the trustee is unwilling to work with you and you can’t pay off the entire amount of back payments and charges, you will be forced to either sell your home or lose your home through foreclosure.
If you are close to being able to pay the money required to stop foreclosure, consider contacting the lender, and speak with the person in charge. If this person refuses to speak with you, you may have to speak to someone at the trustee’s office. Once a foreclosure passes a certain point, it is out of the lender’s hands.
Selling your home while in foreclosure requires a fast sale, and once the public learns that your property is in foreclosure, you won’t likely receive a decent offer because buyers will be trying to take advantage of your situation.
