With millions of homeowners in mortgage trouble, the US Government has introduced a program that could help up to 7 to 9 million homeowners avoid foreclosure. myFICO has partnered with the Homeownership Preservation Foundation to create a 100% free, 100% anonymous way for homeowners to find out if they may be eligible for mortgage help under the Making Home Affordable plan.
Will getting mortgage relief affect my FICO® score?
That depends on a few things such as the type of mortgage assistance you get, how your lender reports the changes to your mortgage and your overall credit profile. You should discuss the credit implications of any change to your mortgage with your lender so you know what to expect. A good practice is to get your FICO® score and credit report prior to applying for mortgage relief. You can then compare your score and report now to your score and report after your receive mortgage help to see the exactly how the changes to your mortgage affected your credit.
