A HUD-approved housing counselor is specially trained and certified to help you assess your financial situation, evaluate options if you are having trouble paying your mortgage loan, and evaluate options for rental or homelessness. Housing counselors are well equipped to help you understand and evaluate your options.
What happens when you call a housing counselor?
If you’re calling because you’re having trouble paying your mortgage, the housing counselor will ask you for information about your mortgage loan, such as the amount you owe and the date of your last payment. This information is generally on your last mortgage loan statement. The housing counselor may also ask for information about your pay stubs, tax returns, recent bank statements, and other bills you pay each month, such as car loans and credit cards. The counselor is asking for this information to understand your financial situation and how much you can afford for a monthly mortgage payment.
If you’re having trouble paying your mortgage
A HUD-approved housing counselor cannot promise that you will get to keep your home. They will help you look at your options so you can make a decision that’s right for you.
If you are facing imminent foreclosure or have been served with legal papers, you may also need to consult an attorney.
