The foreclosure process will vary depending on the state of residence and servicing mortgage lender. However, the process begins when banks send borrowers a breach of contract or payment collection notice. This is referred to as the preforeclosure phase. If mortgagors can cure mortgage arrears and make future mortgage payments, the process could end at this stage.
The foreclosure process continues when borrowers ignore collection letters or are unable to enter into foreclosure prevention strategies offered by the bank. Once borrowers receive a notice of default it is in their best interest to immediately contact their lender. Ignoring the situation only escalates the process.

Foreclosure rates are skyrocketing and millions of Americans are facing the very real possibility of losing their home. Many homeowners are choosing to walk away from their house because they can no longer afford to pay high-interest mortgage notes on real estate which is now worth less than it was when they purchased it.
Foreclosure is also affecting numerous unsuspecting tenants. Oftentimes, homeowners rent their distressed property in hopes of being able to retain their property. If they end up losing their home to foreclosure, tenants are forced to move and generally end up losing their security deposit and advanced rent monies.
