Many people don’t know what to do if they are having difficulty making their mortgage payments. In what can be a tough and overwhelming situation, Wyoming Housing Network (WHN) can help. They may even be able to help clients facing foreclosure stay in their home. WHN collaborates with the State of Wyoming Attorney General’s office to provide homeowners confronting foreclosure with a HUD-certified resource. WHN will work on your behalf with your lender to get you the best option available. They also have numerous resources to help you not only with foreclosure counseling but with other needs that also arise during this process.
WHN can offer support at any stage:
• You haven’t missed a payment yet but are concerned you may fall behind? WHN’s foreclosure counselor can aid you in short term and long-term budget planning, communicate with your lender, and make a plan with you.
• Are you facing foreclosure because of an inability to make payments? WHN’s foreclosure counselor can assess your options with you, communicate with your lender on your behalf, explore the best solution available, and create a budget to help you reach your goals.
• Have you reached a situation that has not allowed you to stay in your home? WHN’s foreclosure counselor can assist you in creating an action plan for rebuilding credit, debt repayment strategies, and budgeting that are critical for rebuilding your financial health.
Homeowners who work with a HUD approved foreclosure counselor, such as WHN, lower their odds of foreclosure by 30% and are 283% more likely to receive a loan modification. There is no charge for the foreclosure counseling services offered at WHN. If a company is offering foreclosure assistance for a fee or telling you to send your payment to them (rather than to your lender), that is a scam.
Unfortunately, there are many of these types of cons out there. You should never pay for foreclosure counseling, if you have questions about a foreclosure assistance company contacting you, call WHN at 307-472-5843.
