Helping Homeowners Prevent Foreclosure
By Deborah Mullins
The Home Preservation Coalition of the Merrimack Valley (HPC) is a collaboration of six agencies of which Community Teamwork, Inc. is an active partner.
The HPC mission is to assist homeowners in resolving mortgage defaults on their debt obligations, improve their housing stability through budget counseling and when home retention is not an option, offer other solutions until the family or individual has been able to transition into new housing.
HPC counselors are HUD certified in foreclosure intervention and mediation through NeighborWorks Training Institute.
The counselors take continuing education classes from Fannie Mae, FHA and The Treasury Department and continue to stay apprised of the rapidly changing program guidelines and foreclosure laws.
There are laws and regulations in Massachusetts that protect the consumer by not allowing a company to charge an upfront fee for a mortgage modification.
Your lender, legislators and regulators suggest using the free service of a HUD Counseling Agency.
