My auction date has been set, how can I stop my foreclosure in Harris County?
The cheapest, easiest way to stop your foreclosure sale is to call your bank and ask them to stop the sale.
The first two requests to stop the sale are relatively easy. Banks usually like to see that the homeowner is making efforts to sell the property or doing something that the bank will get paid.
By the time the homeowner asks the third or fourth time to stop the sale, the bank has heard it all before. Banks pick up on homeowner stall tactics and will be more eager to push a sale through if the homeowner is not cooperative or communicative.
Also homeowners should be aware that some banks schedule auction dates inadvertently. Lines might have gotten crossed between the banks foreclosure attorney and the bank’s representatives.
So homeowners who are trying to avoid foreclosure and cooperate with the bank should watch the foreclosure auction schedule like a hawk to ensure no accidents occur, but also to let the bank know they are working hard to get them paid back.
