In 2007, the Mortgage Debt Relief Act was passed in an attempt to help the millions of homeowners who, due to the housing crisis and economic crash, suddenly found themselves in danger of losing their home to foreclosure.
The act has helped many distressed homeowners find solutions to avoid foreclosure and opened up options to them that were previously unavailable.
However, the Mortgage Debt Relief Act was always intended to be a temporary solution and it is now set to expire at the end of 2012. For distressed homeowners, this means that time is limited for you to take advantage of this program.
Time is running out. But there is still a chance to change your financial direction and avoid foreclosure.
