About Our Mortgage Default Program
In 2008 Parkview Services started seeing foreclosure issues arise in the community we served. As a result of the mortgage crisis and unexpected financial hardships, our clients were facing. When we saw this, we began to respond to the need for housing counseling and advocacy. We started this process in order to prevent foreclosures, on a very small scale. Seeing as there were no formal housing counseling agencies in the state. At the time we had just one HUD-approved housing counselor on staff.
By 2011, Parkview had played a key role when the passage of the Washington Foreclosure Fairness Act (FFA) came through, as a result testifying to the legislature about the extreme need for housing counseling services to prevent foreclosures. Through the funding provided by the FFA, Parkview then started its Mortgage Default Program and expanded our staff to accommodate the hundreds of homeowners in need of help each year. Since that time, we’ve helped over 35,000 Washington homeowners prevent unnecessary foreclosure and mitigate damages to get back on track to financial stability through our no-cost services, and we are currently the largest HUD-approved housing counseling agency in the state of Washington.
What We Do
Our HUD-approved housing counselors provide unbiased housing counseling to those struggling. We help navigate through financial hardships to avoid foreclosure and mitigate losses. When life happens, any number of things can cause finances to get off track. From loss of employment, reduced work hours, extended illness, separation or divorce, a death in the family, and other situations. Parkview’s Counselors are experts at foreclosure help for homeowners. We meet individual goals by establishing a budget, setting priorities while determining a strategy going forward.
Parkview Housing Counselors give clients detailed information about the foreclosure process in Washington State. We provide one-on-one assistance and access to community resources. Parkview Services is a full-service counseling agency, which means we will negotiate with mortgage lenders. We help you on your behalf to obtain home loan modifications or other repayment or non-retention options to prevent foreclosure. We can help homeowners through representation at foreclosure mediation. This helps ensure you will have a knowledgeable advocate working on your behalf to reach the best possible outcomes.
Parkview’s Mortgage Default Program is largely funded by the Washington Foreclosure Fairness Act. Which in effect enables us to offer our services to all homeowners who are struggling in Washington State. Since the program’s inception in 2011, we have helped over 35,000 homeowners.
