"There's still help for those foreclosed on or fearing foreclosure.
The federal government is extending its deadline to review possible mistakes by lenders.
at Housing and Urban Development believe so many homeowners may be
victims of lender mistakes, they have extended the deadline to apply for
review until December 31st.
But figuring the "ins and outs" of
foreclosure is overwhelming, so consumers are turning to a HUD-approved
non-profit agency that offers free help.
Foreclosure review is
available to anyone who was involved in the foreclosure process between
January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010.
HUD-approved housing counseling is available nationwide.
And remember, it's free. If someone tries to charge you for help, It's likely a scam.
We have more information on this review and who might qualify. You can also find a list of HUD-approved housing counseling agencies.
