What does the foreclosure process entail?

Brownsville residents who get behind on their mortgage loan payments could face legal ramifications from their lenders. Upon purchasing a home, it becomes collateral for the loan, which means that failing to make the agreed-upon payments could mean the lender will initiate foreclosure proceedings. During this process, the lender attempts to take possession of the loan's collateral -- the home.

Could a workout agreement protect a homeowner from foreclosure?

For whatever reason -- a job loss, an illness or some other calamity -- Brownsville homeowners could find themselves struggling financially.

A homeowner may believe that it is possible to bounce back, but whether that can happen before foreclosure proceedings are filed remains a question. 

Could a short sale help a homeowner facing foreclosure?

When a homeowner faces foreclosure, exploring the option of a short sale might be worth the time.

Some are calling for the foreclosure process to be put on furlough for those affected by the country's current political struggles.

Texas individuals and families facing a foreclosure should work to understand the process and laws in detail in order to respond in the best possible way.
