Rest assured, help is available
There should never be a fee from your mortgage company or HUD-certified housing counselor to obtain assistance about options to avoid foreclosure. Be wary of companies or individuals offering to help you for a fee and never send a mortgage payment to any company other than the one listed on your monthly mortgage statement. If you believe you’ve been the victim of a mortgage scam, call 1-888-995‐HOPE (4673) and report it immediately.
Before you reach out for help, take the time to fully understand your financial situation and have your mortgage information readily available. Being well organized and prepared will help your loan servicer or housing counselor better understand your financial position and assess your eligibility for a workout option.
