The “How to Avoid Foreclosure” two-pager discusses steps you can take to successfully manage your mortgage payments: take a call for help, consult with experts, slam the scam, and apply for help.

Your servicer may be able to help if you get in trouble with your loan payments. If you can’t get what you need from your servicer, ask for expert help from housing counseling agencies near you. The counselors can develop a tailored plan of action and help you work with your mortgage company. Visit or call (800) 569-4287 and enter your ZIP code, to find a HUD-approved housing counselor.
