The Delaware County PA Sheriff's office has produced a brochure on "How to Save Your Home from Foreclosure" which provides excellent background information on the foreclosure process.
This foreclosure information was put together by Sheriff Joseph F McGinn and the Delaware County Sheriff's Office and is a nice concise explanation of the process, the options, and the contacts for anyone who may find themselves having a problem with affording their home payments. It is by no means all-inclusive but affords a quick overview of what is available in the area for Delaware County PA residents. It is not yet on their website so I have reproduced the information here - see attached.
The key point to remember for anyone facing the possibility of foreclosure is to not ignore it but reach out, learn, and obtain as much information as possible as soon as you realize there may be a problem. There are many resources and options available and they are being expanded and changed on a daily basis. The key is to learn what is available and take advantage of them before a small problem gets worse.
I would like to thank the Sheriff's Office for permission to reprint the information. For questions, please contact Sheriff Joe McGinn or the Delaware County Sheriff's Office located at 201 West Front St, Media PA 19063 - Phone: 610-891-4296 or on the web at www.co.delaware.pa.us/sheriff .
As always, if you have any questions or need any additional information, please feel free to contact me anytime.
