Stop Repossession and Keep Your Home
If you're faced with repossession and close to losing your home, the stress is incredible. There are a few methods to stop repossession, and we'll outline those in this hub. One good thing about home foreclosure is that you have to be notified before you are foreclosed on. Repossession of a car is different, if you miss a payment they have the right to come and repo your ride in without notifying you at all. With that in mind, we'll take a look at how to get out of this before you get the repo notice.
The most important first step to learn how to stop repossession is to stop ignoring the letters and phone calls that your creditors are making. Ignoring the issue is not going to stop repossession, it's going to advance it. The problem is not going to go away unless you do something about it soon. In this hub you will learn that the only way out is by working with your creditors to stop repossession. So grab all of your unopened mail (assuming you didn't throw it away) and take a look at it to see what they want from you. Many times the creditors will be sympathetic to your situation and be willing to help, but you'll never find out unless you talk with them.
Pay It Back
The easiest way (albeit most expensive) way to stop repossession is to talk with your creditors to see what they want you to pay. It's usually going to be a huge lump sum of cash. I know that if you had that kind of cash in the first place, you would have never been in this situation. So if you're credit score is still intact, act fast a work to get a loan that will pay your home creditor back. That will get them off your back, but you will now have to repay the loan to bank. Unless you are strong with your finances, this is a risky maneuver and can land you in big trouble farther down the line, but will stop repossession now.

Negotiating With Creditors
Another way to stop repossession (which won't always work) is to negotiate a repayment schedule with the creditor. You will obviously have to bite the bullet and answer the phone when they call to harass you to work this out, but it may be your only chance. The way this works is that you and the creditor will negotiate a repayment of your missed payments (these repayments will probably have a penalty tacked on to them) and a schedule for you to make future mortgage payments. If your creditor is willing to negotiate this will stop repossession of your home, but if you miss a payment down the line they probably won't be so kind.
Know The Local Laws
Each state has very different repossession and foreclosure laws. It's very important to know what your rights are as a consumer before dealing with the creditor. It isn't always a good idea just to go off of what your friends and family tell you. You have to actually research what the creditor is capable of doing and what your rights and options are. With this knowledge you'll have a much clearer path when negotiating with your creditors.
Search your own state's laws, and after you have clear understanding check your own cities municipal laws. If you live in a large city, there might be specific laws that will change how you deal with creditors. For example, California has state legislature for how creditors can repossess homes, but the city of San Francisco has a different set of laws that are much more forgiving to the homeowner. Do your homework if you really want to succeed in these negotiations.
