Holiday Help Avoiding Foreclosure!

This holiday season, you may get the gift of delayed foreclosure because courts and banks will be closed some days around Christmas and New Year's.

Foreclosure sale dates often aren't scheduled by courts for the end December to account for the days they will be closed.

The closures will also temporarily disrupt progress on moving a foreclosure case toward a sale.

That's means that you may have slightly more time in your home than if your foreclosure case was moving forward at another time of the year.

Foreclosure Eviction Moratoriums

It's possible to have some delays in your foreclosure case just because of the courts being closed. But there are also some actions being taken specifically to help families stay in their homes during the holidays.

Puppies & Other Things We Are Thankful For [Happy Thanksgiving!]

It's time to give thanks and celebrate! (And eat a lot of turkey and pie, of course.) This Thanksgiving at Amerihope Alliance Legal Services, we asked our staff to answer an anonymous poll that asked one simple question: What are you thankful for? Here are some of the responses:

  • My parents, my family, my friends, and my health.
  • I'm thankful for random acts of kindness, and people who are friendly and generous.
  • I'm thankful for my beautiful mother and daughter, and that everyday I can be thankful for something in my life.
  • Puppies!
  • I'm thankful for having and raising two boys that I love and that they aren’t ashamed to show me that they love me, too.
  • I am thankful for my wonderful friends and coworkers and holidays like Thanksgiving.
  • I'm thankful that we're able to help our clients

You Can't Avoid Foreclosure Forever

Sometimes a homeowner will fall behind on their mortgage, but they don't actually lose their home to foreclosure for a long, long time. How long? We've had clients who were in foreclosure for 11 years before their case was resolved!

People who stop paying their mortgage but continue to live in their home for years without anything happening can get used to that. Mistake. While at times it may seem like nothing's going on, the wheels are turning.

Some homeowners forget how serious their situation is, and then they get a notice that their home is scheduled to be sold in a foreclosure auction, and they're shocked and unprepared and have few options available to them.

Remember that when you fall behind on your mortgage, your home will eventually be lost and you and your family will be evicted if you can't resolve your default. Don't let it happen to you!

Every week we obtain loan modifications for our clients with a variety of loan servicers. You can see these results as they are announced on Twitter (#loanmodwow) or Facebook. Here are some of our results from this week with SPS, Home Point Financial, and Selene:

SPS

What Does It Mean To Return Your Mortgage To "Normal Servicing"?

If you want to keep your home after falling behind on your mortgage, your goal should be to find a solution, such as a loan modification, that will return your loan to “normal servicing” and allow you to avoid foreclosure.

What Is Loan Servicing

Loan servicing is the process by which a company collects money from a borrower and manages their loan. Your mortgage loan servicer is the company you send your mortgage payments to. They're like an accounts receivable department that collects your payments and distributes the funds to the investor that owns your loan, collecting a fee for themselves in the process.

You have no say in who services your mortgage, and servicing rights can transfer. One month you're making mortgage payments to Cenlar, the next it's to Ocwen. If you don't like it, too bad. You have no say in the matter.
