If you are not currently in foreclosure, but are facing financial difficulty, here are some things you can do to help. Prevention is better than cure, and the earlier you get help, the easier it will be to retain your home.
- Speak to your lender. Your first step in preventing foreclosure is to promptly communicate with your lender if you are behind on your mortgage or find yourself unable to make a payment. These discussions can facilitate the restructuring of your payment plan to reduce your interest rate and lower your monthly payments. If necessary, the postponement of regular payments can also be considered to help you get through a difficult time. Be forthcoming and honest with your lender and make sure to answer calls and emails to help with this process. If they are unable to reach you, they may opt to proceed with foreclosure.
- Seek legal assistance. The Utah Foreclosure Help Line will put you directly in contact with a foreclosure defense law firm that is licensed to practice in Utah. They offer a free evaluation of your situation and can give you advice on how to proceed given your circumstances. You can contact them on (888) 718-0986 or visit their website at https://mortgagereliefproject.org/utah-foreclosure-help/.
- Call the Homeowner’s Hope Hotline. Homeowners facing potential foreclosure can also call the HOPE NOW toll-free at hotline at 1-888-995-HOPE (1-888-995-4673) or visit their website at 995hope.org.
