Foreclosure Help- Counseling Services

“Working together to help neighbors recover”

What type of help can a homeowner expect to get from a counseling service and why is it such an important first step?

The HUD certified counselors review the home owner’s overall financial situation and then guide them to the solution that best suits their individual situation. Everything from assisting homeowners in reviewing their monthly budget to determining whether loan modification or other options are appropriate. They also assist the homeowner in submitting the required documentation to the homeowner’s lenders. They can guide them through the entire process including credit repair. It’s important to note that every individual or family’s situation is unique and it takes a trained counselor to look at the situation and discuss with the homeowner their options.

Is there help for homeowners who have already gone through foreclosure and need help getting back on track?

Many of the counseling agencies, as well as credit counseling agencies, can assist homeowners to get back on track with a budget and the steps to take to repair their credit. Their goal is to have these people become homeowners again in the future.
