Acceptable Hardships

A hardship condition is an unexpected financial crisis. This hardship is the reason behind most delinquent mortgage payments. HUD recognizes the following as valid reasons and hardships to be acceptable for default. Please review the list, if you are behind on your payments or feel you may be soon in falling behind, please call me! There may be other options besides foreclosure. I know it is hard for you, and I want to help! Please beware of companies or people that promise to make payments on your behalf, or those that may ask you to sign a paperwork without allowing you proper time to review - because you may be signing your home away.
