What To Do If Your Home Is Approaching Foreclosure

Once you start missing your mortgage payments, your lender reserves the right to foreclose on your home. Though your loan is technically in default after missing a single payment, most lenders don’t start foreclosure proceedings until your loan is 90 days overdue. The entire foreclosure process takes a lengthy amount of time to complete; in some states, it might be years before your home is officially foreclosed on. However, don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction by thinking you have plenty of time to save your home or find alternative living arrangements.
