Mortgage foreclosure is a complex process. Some people may approach you about "saving" your home. You should be careful about any such promises. The state encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure before entering into any agreements with anyone in connection with the foreclosure of your home. There are government agencies and nonprofit organizations that you may contact for helpful information about the foreclosure process. Call the Hotline of the Mediation Unit of the Consumer Protection Division for assistance at 1-888-743-0023.
