Most people are familiar with the stress that comes along with a tight budget or not knowing if there will be enough money in the bank to pay all of the monthly bills. Being behind on house payments is undoubtedly at the top of the stress list. Whether you are behind on your mortgage or property taxes, you need to know what options are available to you.
The first thing you should do if you are behind or know that you will miss a mortgage or tax payment is to contact the creditor. Oftentimes the mortgage company or tax office will be happy to work with you, but only if you contact them as soon as possible. Let them know about your situation. Ask them what payment options are available.
Seek financial or housing counseling. Private organizations and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) offer counseling to help avoid foreclosure. Contacting an attorney to advise you on your legal options is another good suggestion.
Ultimately, if you are getting behind on your house payments you need to quickly develop a financial plan. Financial counselors can assist you with this.
