Foreclosure Prevention Tool Kit

Consumers facing financial difficulties have a lot of choices to make.  Offers of "help" are everywhere -- in your mail box, plastered on billboards and promoted on the Internet.  BBB has developed this foreclosure prevention tool-kit to provide tips, advice and links to sources that you can trust in this difficult time. 

Top BBB Tips for Homeowners Facing Foreclosure

  • Contact your lender as soon as you realize that you may have a problem making your payments.
  • Beware of unsolicited phone calls and mailers offering assistance for a fee.
  • Be realistic about your financial situation and what resources are available to you.
  • Remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Check out all offers before you sign, provide personal information or pay any money.
  • Get help from trusted sources.
