Q: What Causes a Foreclosure?



A: A lender decides to foreclosure, or repossess, a property when the
owner fails to pay the mortgage. Unfortunately, thousands of homes end up in
foreclosure every year.


Many people lose their homes due to job loss, credit problems, divorce,
unexpected expenses, and during periods of economic instability.


Failure to pay property taxes may also cause a homeowner to lose his home.
Trouble can also arise when owners neglect to pay local water bills and home
insurance premiums.
