How to get help with your mortgage
What to do if you can't pay your mortgage
The first thing to do is to contact your mortgage company and tell them about your situation. They will offer any assistance that they can since they do not want your loan to go into foreclosure. Depending on the type of loan you have, there may be government programs to allow you to defer payments. If not, they may have suggestions for you to bring your loan current, like borrowing money from relatives or other sources.
You may have to bite the bullet and put your house up for sale. That is much better than foreclosure since you can recover any equity in your house and avoid bad credit. Do whatever you can to avoid foreclosure as it will mark you as a bad credit risk for years to come, and even effect your ability to rent.
