Foreclosure prevention from Cherokee Nation.
Homeowners in need of guidance can receive mortgage assistance and foreclosure counseling from The Cherokee Nation. The services offered are intended to help people avoid foreclosure.
The assistance program helps put homeowners in a place to make better decisions when it comes to prioritizing their personal finances and paying their mortgages, according to a media release. The services offered will encourage self-sufficiency by homeowners and also provide the necessary skills and resources to people need to prevent foreclosure.
The director of the Cherokee Nation’s Small Business Assistance Center (phone 918-453-5536), Shay Smith, says that taking early action when payment troubles arise will increase the chances for a positive outcome and early action is the key to stopping a foreclosure.
One and one counseling is provided. A Self-sufficiency staff member will work with both the mortgage lender and the client to develop a plan of action. In many cases this will involve developing a loan workout plan to get the delinquent homeowner caught up and current with their payments. In other cases this will means working with the lender and client to negotiate a deed in lieu of foreclosure or even a short sale if those are determined to be the best options. The sooner a homeowner requests help, the more options they will have, and the greater the chance for success. Find additional mortgage and foreclosure assistance programs.
