St. Charles Bankruptcy Lawyer | MO Foreclosure Help | Debt Attorney
Job loss, health issues and other changes in circumstances can make it hard to keep up with monthly expenses such as mortgage payments. Unfortunately, once you get behind, it is hard to catch up. Non-payment of bills can have serious consequences. If you are significantly behind in your mortgage payments, your mortgage holder may try to foreclose on your home.
What is foreclosure?
When you borrowed the money to buy your home or refinanced your home, you used your home as collateral to guarantee your payment. When you miss payments, your lender has the legal right to use your home to pay your debt.
What are the consequences of foreclosure?
When foreclosure occurs, you must move out of your home. Foreclosures may seriously affect your credit.
What can I do to avoid foreclosure?
Because of the poor economy, foreclosures in the U.S. are hitting record numbers. Almost 500,000 Missouri residents are facing foreclosure. If you’re having trouble paying your mortgage, there are steps you can take to avoid foreclosure.
