I pay the prop. taxes on my home at the end of each year or the beginning of the following year. I was laid off in late Dec. and was out of work for a few months. Long story short...I paid half of the taxes, but still owe about $700 (not a valid excuse, I know). Just today, I received a letter from my mortgage company saying I was in default of my mortgage and needed to pay the tax and send a copy of the receipt to them immediately. I will pay soon...but what can they do to me? Or...how long would it take to do anything? I can pay the tax, but it will be over 2 payments over the next 2-3 weeks.

Thanks.

First: Read the terms of your mortgage. There should be a statement in there regarding the consequences for non timely payments.

Second: contact your mortgage company (in writing too) and explain your situation. They really don't want to foreclose on your house, so as long as your repayment is in a reasonable amount of time (3 paychecks seems reasonable to me). They should be willing to work with you. Make sure you get a manager's approval and not just some clerk's OK. Your house is a pretty large investment to trust a verbal OK from someone who may not have the authority to approve your payment agreement.

Third: Stay cool. Communication is the resolution to your problem.
