Foreclosure Assistance

A home is more than a financial asset. It is a place to live and raise a family, a plan for the future and an investment in your community. The City of Hollywood promotes home preservation and encourages you to contact Community Development should you require additional assistance at 954.921.3271.

Tips To Avoid Foreclosure

  • Contact your lender's loss mitigation department
  • Open and respond to all mail from your lender
  • Call a HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) approved Housing Counseling Agency (for links to housing counseling agencies, see below)
  • Create a personal budget and review your financial resources
  • Consider ways of increasing your income and reducing your expenses
