Utah County Short Sales: More Ways To Tell That A Debt Collector Is Breaking The Law

Utah County UT – Debt collectors are very creative in their attempts to convince debtors to pay. Fortunately we have the law protecting us called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

I don’t know what happened before the law was passed. But, after reading thru the law, you can see it was pretty bad.

It sounds like debt collectors would call late at night, threaten debtors with violence, use profane language, and do anything else they could think of to harass debtors into paying.

Fortunately the law says that they are not allowed to call before 8AM or after 9PM. In addition, they are not allowed to threaten you with violence or tell other people about your alleged debt.

But, the biggest violation that I see is when they call you after you ask them to stop calling. This is actually a violation (although you wouldn’t think that when you hear about how many debt collectors still call after you ask them to stop.)

There are also violations that come into play because the Fair Credit Reporting Act. For example, if you request a written validation of the debt, then they have to stop all collection activities until they have sent you written verification of the debt.

If you are being harassed by debt collectors, then remember that the law is on your side. Research your options and go on the offensive.

You can get the debt collectors to back off and can often even get paid for anytime they have violated the law. (Don’t kid yourself, it happens more often than you think.)

Important Notice

Brett Bezzant, R and R Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not associated or affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed, endorsed, or approved by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

If you stop paying your mortgage, then you could lose your home and damage your credit. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
