For those facing foreclosure in California there are very strong laws in place to help protect borrowers against illegal lender practices. Although many home owners believe that their lenders will help them avoid the loss of their home, illegal foreclosures often happen while lenders are telling borrowers that they are trying to help. In California, the foreclosure process cannot start until a lender contacts a home owner after they fall behind on their mortgage payments. Commonly, many homeowners get a notice of foreclosure in a time of extreme difficulty; after a job loss or after an accident. Many people facing foreclosure feel confused about what to do. Of course, most people don't want to lose their home.
