If you’ve gotten a foreclosure notice of default and want to know what the heck is going on, keep reading.

Basically, a foreclosure notice of default is a document that has to be filed by a lender to start the process of foreclosure.

The foreclosure notice of default must be sent to anyone who has an interest in the property (any other loans, lenders, or even contractors who are owed money for work done to a property will get a copy).

The foreclosure notice of default must also be published in a newspaper and physically posted in a prominent place on the property itself.

Although this can be really embarrassing to someone going through foreclosure, it’s actually a very important protection for consumers.

Back before US law required a notice of default, people were sometimes foreclosed on without any warning.

In fact, it’s happened even in the past few years – at least one bank has accidentally foreclosed on the wrong property and kicked people out of their house without due process or warning. It’s even happened around Lynnwood.

The notice of default is a very important step within the foreclosure process that gives people with an interest in the property to step forward and claim their rights – before it’s too late.

If you’ve received a notice of default, don’t wait. Time is definitely of the essence, and you should take action.

Here are a few key steps you should take:

1) Stay calm and don’t panic.

This may sound obvious, but it’s probably the most important. Anyone in foreclosure is dealing with a lot of stress beyond just the property. These situations don’t happen overnight, and they take a while to solve. You’ll get through it by practicing good coping techniques and taking good care of yourself and your family. Panic leads to bad decisions, so stay cool.

2) Educate yourself.

Learn everything you can about the foreclosure process in your state so that you know what’s happening and what’s coming up next.

3) Gather your resources.

There’s also many non-profit and government resources available out there. You’ll want good legal and tax advice along the way. Definitely don’t try to do it all yourself. This stuff is super complicated with lots of rules.

4) Learn your options.
