If you want to help homeowners avoid foreclosure, you need to know “Who’s Who” and the types of documents, issues, and entities involved when borrowers need options to cure a mortgage default.

  • What the different types of promissory notes are
  • How to identify the parties, including original creditors and assignees
  • What the role is of mortgage servicers
