Resources to Help Avoid Foreclosure

At Budget Finance Company, we know that some homeowners are unable to make, or are having difficulty making, their mortgage payments, and need information or assistance in avoiding foreclosure on their home. 

We want to talk to any homeowner in this situation who has a home loan with Budget Finance Company  to see if we can agree on a course that would avoid a foreclosure situation.

Of course, every situation is different, and we cannot guarantee that our efforts will be successful in avoiding foreclosure.

If you are facing this situation, or need information, here are some resources to assist you:

OUR TOLL FREE NUMBER 

(800) 225-6267


This phone number is available from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, excluding holidays when the company is closed. 

Please ask the person who answers for the Loan Service Department.  You will be transferred or given a contact name and phone number. If that contact person is not available, your call will be returned within 24 hours.

OPTIONS THAT MAY BE AVAILABLE TO BORROWERS WHO ARE UNABLE TO AFFORD THEIR MORTGAGE PAYMENTS AND WHO WISH TO DISCUSS OPTIONS FOR AVOIDING FORECLOSURE

·         We may be able to agree on a change in the payment due date.
 

·         We may be able to agree to allow you to resume payments at the current payment amount, without needing to pay delinquent payments until your loan matures or the loan pays off earlier.
 

·         We may be able to agree on a lower interest rate for a period of time, or leave your present rate in place when you are facing a rate change.
 

·         We may be able to agree to delay the start of any foreclosure proceedings, or temporarily suspend any foreclosure proceeding already in process, while you attempt to sell your home, refinance, raise money, or move.
 

·         We may be able to consider a deed in lieu of foreclosure, whereby you offer to transfer ownership of your home to the bank without any foreclosure process. You should know that this course is not often workable, particularly to borrowers with other loans or liens or their home.
