Mortgage Delinquency / Foreclosure Counseling

Sometimes families experience a loss in income whether it be permanent or temporary.  They juggle paying electric bill, buying groceries, and paying a house payment on less income.  Repetitively juggling bills could eventually lead to dropping the ball on paying the mortgage. What then? A LIFT CAA foreclosure counselor can provide you with answers to your questions, “What is foreclosure?” “What is a moratorium?” “Do I have options?” You don’t have to do it alone. Our professional foreclosure counselors can help you. Our counselors can explore workout options that your lender may offer such as, forbearance, a repayment plan, partial claim, refinancing, or maybe a loan modification. Let our housing counselors assist you with your lender to prevent foreclosure. Where do you start? Call one of our housing counselors near you.

Reverse Mortgage Counseling / Home Equity Conversion Mortgage Counseling (HECM)

Are you considering using the equity in your home to fill in the gaps in your budget? Are you 62 years of age or older and still making a mortgage payment? Living on a fixed income can be challenging to pay a house payment, doctor bills, pay for supplemental insurance and medicine. Let one of our HECM counselors assist you with researching options. We can provide HECM counseling in our office or by phone. Contact one of our HECM counselors near you for more information.
