When homeowners get a mortgage loan to buy a home, they have every intention of paying the loan off in the designated time that they’ve agreed on and owning a home free and clear. By “free and clear”, we mean they are the only owners of the home rather than sharing it with the bank as they did when they were paying money back to the bank.
Unfortunately, as good of intentions that homeowners have, they can’t always keep up on their mortgage payments and find themselves falling behind, risking losing their home to mortgage foreclosure. As unfortunate as it is, the mortgage foreclosure rate is at an all-time high. The combination of a shaky economy, high interest rates and the high cost of homes has made buying and keeping a home a very difficult task. If you see yourself facing foreclosure, it’s important to find a mortgage foreclosure law practice.
