Should you experience difficulty paying your mortgage, help may be available. It is very important that you contact your loan servicer immediately and don’t let the payment deadline pass. HUD-certified housing counselors can help you navigate this situation successfully and avoid a foreclosure. Your first step is to seek assistance as soon as you suspect that you may not be able to make a payment.

BEWARE of Foreclosure Rescue Scams!
Help is FREE! Beware of any organization or person who:
- Offers a guarantee that they can save your home
- Says they can save your home if you sign or transfer the deed to your house
- Requests a fee for housing counseling services or modifications of a delinquent loan
- Tells you to not contact your loan servicer
- Tells you to make your mortgage payments to anyone other than your loan servicer
- Asks you to make your mortgage payment to them instead of your loan servicer.
