The Mortgage Bankers Association has announced the addition of the Foreclosure Prevention Resource Center to its consumer education site, HomeLoanLearningCenter.com.The center is part of the MBA's effort to advise those who face trouble making their loan payment to contact their loan servicer as soon as possible to determine whether an alternative to foreclosure may be possible based on the borrower's financial and employment status. The bilingual site includes a listing of major loan servicers and their contact information as well as a guide to "Things to Know When You Contact Your Lender" so distressed borrowers can have an informed discussion with their servicer. "The sooner a borrower who is having trouble contacts his or her servicer, the more options they may have to make alternate arrangements," said MBA president and CEO Jonathan L. Kempner. The MBA's consumer education site can be found online at http://www.homeloanlearningcenter.com.
