Alabama Foreclosure: What is a notice of acceleration?

Alabama Foreclosure: What is a notice of acceleration?So you have a mortgage and you’ve fallen behind on your payments, and you received a notice of default letter.

Unfortunately, you’re not able to fix this.

Now, you’ve received something called an “acceleration notice.”

What in the world is this?

It means you owe everything now.

When you get this in the mail, the mortgage company is basically saying, “You had a 30-year note, which means you had plenty of time to pay off your mortgage. However, now that you’re behind on your payments, you owe the whole amount now.”

Instead of paying a $250,000 loan over 30 years, $250,000 is due now.

If you don’t pay if off now, the mortgage company will foreclose on you.

Normally in this letter, they’ll tell you that in 30 days, there will be a foreclosure sale on your property.

They will also advertise your property in the newspaper for 3 consecutive weeks, and during legal hours they will foreclose on you.

If you’re at this point, you are in critical danger of losing your home.

It’s crucial to figure out where you are, what you’re doing to do, and taking immediate action.

Otherwise, you’re going to lose your home.
