PRLog - April 15, 2010 - For many families faced with loosing their homes, these actions may be enough to put the danger of loosing a home to foreclosure in the past permanently. Read on for some quick ways to stop a home from being foreclosed.
What Is The Best Way To Stop A Foreclosure Proceeding?
Hector Milla Editor of the "Best Mortgage Loan Modification"
Before Foreclosure Officially Starts
“…One of the best ways to buy time when payments are late is by simply responding to any and all notices the bank sends. If the bank is sending letters saying they intend to foreclose, simply responding to these letters may be enough to hold off the proceedings. If a homeowner is expecting to be able to resume paying a home's mortgage, this is an ideal time to contact the bank and see if foreclosure can be slowed down or stopped. Even if financial hardship looks like it will last awhile, responding to notices will keep things from proceeding automatically…”
Stopping Foreclosures in Progress
There are several things a homeowner can do to stop a foreclosure once it is in progress. If the homeowner meets federal guidelines designed to prove financial hardship or distress, a homeowner can apply for a home loan modification to immediately put a stop to all foreclosing proceedings. The bank cannot resume attempting to move toward the home's sheriff sale until they have finished reviewing the modification application and either approved or denied it. If this application is approved, it will stop the foreclosure permanently and give a homeowner a new start on paying a reasonable mortgage.
Another option involves securing as much of a loan as possible for a refinance and contacting the bank to negotiate a short sale. This loan can be used to pay the bank whatever is agreed upon for the short sale and resume the mortgage through a new lender with more manageable terms. Frequently, this can allow a homeowner to cover legal fees involved in negotiating with the bank, get a discount on the original price of the home, and start paying on a mortgage that they can afford.
“…Once a home is actually at auction, the only option is to attempt to buy the home back during or after the auction. Luckily, there are several steps that can be taken before a foreclosure reaches this point that can help someone stay in their home…” added H. Milla.
