Post-Purchase Counseling

Have you recently purchased your home and now you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by being a homeowner?  Our Post-Purchase Counseling is designed for homeowners who have recently purchased a home. The discussion will include what to do if the homeowner thinks he/she will be late with a mortgage payment. The Counselor will work the homeowner to develop a household budget which includes saving for critical housing-related expenses such as maintenance and home improvements. The goal is help the homeowner to identify tools and practices that will establish a stable financial position and enable the homeowner to avoid future late payments and/or foreclosure. Upon completion of the counseling, you will have a realistic household budget to live within your means, meet your payment obligations and have a savings plan for major purchases and repairs.

Renter Assistance

Upon the intake, the counselor and client will determine the amount and extent of the delinquency. The counselor will guide the client in identifying the cause of the delinquency and determine if the client is able to bring the amount due to current status within a time period acceptable to the renter. The counselor will discuss rent relief options, renter’s and landlord’s rights, recovery of deposits, and eviction procedures.
