Can you convince a lender that a default is not your fault?

Like most Mississippi residents, the thought of losing your home is enough to cause significant increases in your blood pressure and send your anxiety levels through the roof. So many homeowners are struggling financially these days, especially in the wake of the economic crisis where many lenders approved loans they had no business approving. Even in households where there are two full-time incomes, unforeseen circumstances, medical emergencies, sudden job loss and any number of other issues may bring finances crashing down, leaving those involved feeling overwhelmed and worried.

There's a fine line between being late for a mortgage payment or two and plummeting into a complete downward financial spiral that places your home at risk for foreclosure. You may have the best intentions for recovering financial stability, if only your lender would understand your circumstances and cut you a break. It doesn't always happen that way, however, and many people wind up in urgent need of debt relief assistance.

Can you stop foreclosure?

If creditors are breathing down your back and your lender is threatening to take ownership of your home, it doesn't necessarily mean all hope is lost. There may be several options to help you keep your head above water and save your home from foreclosure. Consider the following tips that have helped others in similar situations:

  • Generally speaking, foreclosure is not something lenders look forward to. Many are willing to work out compromises rather than have to deal with placing houses up for auction.
  • You may be able to stop the foreclosure process by aggressively pursuing a short sale.
  • There may be other debt relief options available to you that stop the foreclosure process in its tracks.
  • Some lenders are willing to adjust payment plans on a temporary basis to help homeowners satisfy mortgage debt and recover financial stability without losing their homes.

Various strategies may exist to help you save your home and develop a plan to get back on track financially. It's often a matter of knowing what resources are available and where to turn for support. Such situations can be very stressful; in fact, you may know one or more people who have fallen for money lending scams or other fraudulent assistance that left them in worse financial shape than they were to start.

Many Mississippi homeowners have found it helpful to consult with experienced debt relief attorneys before taking action against foreclosure or deciding how best to proceed to rectify financial crisis situations.
