California; 13, April 2015: Recently, the state of California adopted SB900, The Homeowner Bill of Rights, which is aimed at preventing foreclosures and helping homeowners understand their options. This “HOBR” outlines several options that homeowners have to prevent foreclosure, or put a halt to it. These include loan modification, suing mortgage lenders for violations, forbearance agreements, and even refinancing current loans. A foreclosure attorney helps borrowers understand their rights more clearly and can assist in the process. Here is a brief description of each preventive step borrowers can take to stop foreclosure in California.
A loan modification, in its simplest form, is a permanent alteration of the terms of a loan. A foreclosure lawyer will usually suggest that homeowners apply for a loan modification as the first and foremost method for stopping foreclosure. This is primarily because loan modification does not involve litigation and is the easiest action the borrowers themselves can take to avoid foreclosure.

Depending upon the situation, forbearance agreements are the preferable option for borrowers who are experiencing a temporary hardship. Borrowers who will lose income for a short period of time should consider working with their lender to come to an agreement regarding lower monthly payments. This can prevent foreclosure. Communication is vital to this process.
Loan refinancing is an option for individuals who are not yet late on their payments. Borrowers that are struggling with their payments should contact their lender to prevent foreclosure down the road. The government also provides assistance through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) which is a great refinance program for borrowers with a high interest rate or a high principal loan balance. A foreclosure attorney can assist borrowers in determining the appropriate action for HARP eligibility.
