Avoiding Home Foreclosure in Michigan

Gary Nitzkin, who blogs at Michigan Collection Law Blog, recently posted an important article outlining a number of ways that homeowners can avoid losing their homes to foreclosure.

Gary's suggestions include (a) asking your lender about a Home Retention Program, (b) talking directly with the lender's Loss Mitigation Department, (c) considering a Forbearance Agreement, a Loan Modification, deed in lieu of foreclosure or (d) negotiating a pre-foreclosure short sale. Gary notes that there may be significant tax consequences to any agreement with the lender that involves forgiveness of debt.
