With all the attention on foreclosures in the state of Ohio there are still many people that do not know what to do if they are beginning to fall behind on housing payments.

Here are some tips that can be used in order to clear up myths about foreclosure. First, something important to remember is that the earlier a person seeks help about the financial situation the better, you do not have to wait until you miss a mortgage payment in order to get help.

Also, once a foreclosure lawsuit is filed, this does not mean that a person must move from the home immediately. The homeowner still has the chance to defend the lawsuit and this process can take months.

Another myth is that once a foreclosure lawsuit is filed, potential buyers and other court personnel can go into your home. This  is not true, they can not go into your home until it is abandoned.
