Welcome to the Foreclosure section of FindLaw's Real Estate Center, which provides information and resources for people who may be behind on mortgage payments, looking to avoid foreclosure, or already part of a foreclosure process. Here you will find in-depth information on the foreclosure process, including foreclosure basics; foreclosure laws; and foreclosure prevention tips. This section also provides key information on foreclosure alternatives and tips to help you avoid or stop foreclosure through credit counseling, mortgage modification, bankruptcy, and more. For a basic introduction, you can download and print FindLaw's Guide to Foreclosure [pdf]. Foreclosure is a difficult process to undergo, but much more tolerable when armed with the right information.
