What To Do When You're Facing Foreclosure

Falling behind on your mortgage payments can feel like an avalanche crashing down on you. As more payments are missed, the amount compounds and people begin to think of that very intimidating word, foreclosure. In Pennsylvania, if you do fail to stay current on your mortgage, the foreclosure process can start as soon as 60 days after you have become delinquent and your lender has sent two notices regarding missed payments. These letters provide options for preventing foreclosure and usually give you two to four months to prevent the foreclosure and pay the outstanding balance.

If you continue to be in arrears, the lender will file a suit to foreclose on the home. A mortgage foreclosure begins when you are served with a mortgage foreclosure complaint. You have a month to respond to the foreclosure action or a default judgment for the entire amount owed on the loan will be entered. Thereafter, the lender will direct the sheriff to conduct a sale of the property. The county sheriff will provide notice of the sale to you.

If you cannot prevent the sale, the property will be sold to the highest bidder and necessary ownership documents will be executed and transferred. Unfortunately, once the sale is complete, you have no right of redemption. As the borrower, you lose your home.

Before you feel buried by this information, there is help available to help you dig out of this situation. At the law firm of Bryan P. Keenan & Associates, P.C., in Pittsburgh, we are here to help prevent foreclosure and find a way to keep your house.
