Prevent Foreclosure: Want To Know How To Stop A Home Foreclosure?

Jan 13, 2008
Would you like to know how you could stop a home foreclosure? The best answer is to take immediate action. Many people overlook the best solution, and ignore the lenders, this is not the good solution, the lenders will continue to pursue it until either they sell the home at auction or take the home back them.

Stopping a home foreclosure can be a bit intimidating, but do not try to run from it, remember that the banks do not want the property back, they are in the business of lending, not property management.

Homeowners that are facing foreclosure are either in a financial bind, or some other hardship, their intention was not to get in to this position, but this does not mean that they cannot recover from it, or stop the foreclosure process.

Once the owners take control of their lives and stop ignoring the issues at hand, contacting the lender is the first step in getting back on track. It is not easy to stop the foreclosure process; it will require some work, but do not give up on it. Most banks will work with the homeowner by attempting to resolve the default without going through the legal process, especially with the high rate of foreclosures in today's market.

If you are looking to stop a foreclosure, chances are very good that you have already received the "Notice of Default"; this is the lenders legal way of informing you that you are potentially facing a foreclosure on your home. Depending on the state, you live in and the laws regarding foreclosures, you will have some time to take action. Whatever you do, ignoring the notice is the last thing that you want to do. This is not just a warning or a collection letter from the lender, this is the beginning of a legal home foreclosure and ignoring the notice is a guarantee that the lender will win. Working it out with the lender is the only way in which you can stop to foreclosure.

Talk to the loss prevention, or sometimes called the loss mitigation department. This department handles foreclosures, and can get you on a work out plan. Lenders not like to deal with foreclosures, however if you leave them no choice, be assured that they will if given no other option.

The lender may be willing to setup a workout plan, or payment plan for the amount in default and to keep the loan current, in this case, you should take action if you are able too. They will require certain financial and personal information in order to modify the loan agreement. Providing this information accurately and timely, will ensure a timely result from the lender, and will prevent the lender from pursuing further action on the foreclosure.

Selling your home is another option, if you are not in a position to agree with the lenders recommendations, or you will not be able to make the payments as promised, your best option may be to sell your home. Selling your home is one way that you are in control of the unfortunate situation.
Taking action is the best way to start, and you can look on the internet for a great deal of information regarding foreclosures and companies that can offer assistance. Make sure to act fast as time is already against you if you have received a "Notice of Default."

Stopping or preventing a home foreclosure is entirely up to the homeowner, if you are willing to work with the lender, provide the required information, and come to an agreement, you may stop the foreclosures on your home. On the other hand, if you are not willing to talk to them or ignore their phone calls and letters, then make sure that you have your personal belongings packed and ready to go when they foreclosure on our home.
