Regarding the HELOC i have 150k on. I remember reading somewhere that some companies instead of foreclosing on the house are writing off the HELOC, and instead just putting the balance of the HELOC on the house as a lien when you sell it. So basically when I sell the house, they'd take 150k from what I get. Is this true? Thanks.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
