How do I deal with my mortgage company when facing foreclosure or bankruptcy?

If your house is at risk of foreclosure or is currently being foreclosed on, take immediate action. You may still have time to save your home. It is important that action take place to stop the foreclosure before the advertised sale date.

Filing a bankruptcy will immediately halt the foreclosure process. Tennessee is a non-judicial foreclosure state meaning a house can be sold by foreclosure without any court action being taken. If a bankruptcy is not filed in time, the sale can take place on the courthouse steps with just a notice in the newspaper. Don’t take chances with losing your home. Call us for an early appointment to consider your options.
