Foreclosure Prevention and Housing Counseling Centers

Foreclosure Prevention and Housing Counseling Centers provide counseling in order to help residents purchase homes and reduce the number of properties that are lost as a result of foreclosure. Additionally the following services are provided:

  • Foreclosure Prevention Counseling Centers assist first-time homebuyers who are required to have six hours of pre-purchase program counseling and certification.
  • Pre-Purchase counseling explains the home buying process and all of the basic responsibilities and obligations of owning a home.

Individuals or families who are at risk of losing their homes because they are 31 or more days late (delinquent) in paying their mortgage can get advice on how to prevent foreclosure. It is critically important that homeowners get counseling at the earliest possible point that they begin to have trouble paying the mortgage to avoid losing their home.

It is important that you contact the Foreclosure Prevention Counseling Center of your choice at the onset of your home search or mortgage payment problem. Information and options are important in a home purchase or foreclosure situation; alternatives can diminish or disappear if counseling occurs too late.
