If you're about to face foreclosure, you'll likely take little comfort in knowing that millions of other homeowners are in the same leaky boat. Because of the magnitude of the crisis, some homeowners are discovering that they can fight or at least put off losing their homes. Which is where "The Foreclosure Survival Guide" comes in.
This inexpensive, 300-page book (no CDs are included) will give you strategies to get through the process -- and in some cases, help you save your home.
The book is written in large type and an easy-to-understand format. The author, who is an attorney, wrote the book for Nolo, a company that has been around for 40 years. Its aim is to make legal matters understandable for lay people. And it accomplishes that by offering a range of advice for navigating the legal system and making the process as painless as possible.
You'll find out whether it makes sense to file for bankruptcy, what to expect when you get that foreclosure notice, how much time you have to respond, and much, much more. Its aim is to demystify the whole process, which it does very well.
No book can take the place of a competent attorney -- if you really need one -- and even if you decide you need legal help, this book will give you the kind of background to understand what the attorney is doing -- and even whether the attorney is doing the job you're paying for.
You'll also learn how to avoid scams, deal with your lender and even stop the process. Without being billed up to $300 an hour, either.
