The first step is to contact your lender for the information on how to avoid foreclosure. There are many options that they will give you, depending on your situation. The lender will ask you for a brief description of your situation, so be prepared to give them a run down on your expenses and budget. The first thing they may do is ask you to fill out a loan workout package, make sure to sign and return all paperwork as soon as possible, because it can delay the lender from taking the next step in the process.
