With the recent increase in foreclosure rates, many politicians are pushing for government “bail out” for the institutions that offered subprime mortgages. What the average consumer doesn’t realize is that there are many government, state and federal, that are already in place to help stop foreclosure. When looking for information on government help to stop foreclosures, the internet is a great place to look.
The HUD (US Department of Housing and Urban Development) has many programs in place to offer government help to stop foreclosures. The HUD web site offers many tips and suggestions for home owners that find themselves in financial difficulty and impending foreclosure.
