If you are experiencing foreclosure and wants to get out of foreclosure, there are some actions that you could do so that you could get out of foreclosure and among these are:

Inform your lender if you are going to miss a mortgage payment

If you know that you are going to miss the first payment on your mortgage, it is your responsibility to notify your lender or the bank where you obtained a mortgage loan so that your lender could explain to you the entire process and what to expect when you miss your first payment, the longer that you miss your payment there are other fees and costs that you have to consider if you are able to pay the missed mortgage payments.

Another reason why you should contact your lender immediately is for them to know the reason why you have missed your first mortgage payment, the reason could be that you lost your job or there was a medical emergency in your family or you have had suffered a financial setback or hardship, your lender could give you time until you regain your financial stability and be able to pay them.
