Legal Protections for Illinois Homeowners to Assist in Avoiding Foreclosures; the Illinois State Bar Provides Information

Question: What legal protection is afforded to Illinois homeowners to assist them in avoiding foreclosure? Answer: The Homeowners Protection Act gives Illinois homeowners who are behind in their mortgage payments a grace period of up to 90 days during which the lender is precluded from initiating foreclosure proceedings. Homeowners are strongly advised to use the additional time to consult with a lawyer or qualified housing counselor to work out a payment plan with their lender.
