Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention

Colorado Foreclosure Hotline

1-877-601-HOPE

This hotline connects homeowners with trained professional housing counselors who will help borrowers understand their options to avoid foreclosure.  Call for free advice today.

After working so hard to achieve homeownership, the last thing you want to do is to default on your loan and lose your home. If you are having difficulty in making your mortgage payments, you should do the following:

· Call your lender immediately – let them know what is going on and discuss options to avoid delinquency.

· Consider all financial resources to draw from to make next month's payment (family, 401K, part-time job).

· Contact a local HUD-approved counseling agency to discuss all your options.

· Read all your mail from your lender.

To find a HUD-approved counseling agency and for more information on mortgage default services, check out the Colorado Housing Counseling Coalition at http://www.coloradohousingcounseling.org
