"Help For Homeowners in Foreclosure

Minnesota law requires that we send you this notice about the foreclosure process. Please read it carefully.

Mortgage foreclosure is a complex process. Some people may approach you about "saving" your home. You should be careful about any such promises.

The state encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure before entering into any agreements with anyone in connection with the foreclosure of your home. There are government agencies and nonprofit organizations that you may contact for helpful information about the foreclosure process. For the name and telephone number of an organization near you please call the Minnesota Home Finance Agency (MHFA) at (insert telephone number). The state does not guarantee the advice of these agencies.

Do not delay dealing with the foreclosure because your options may become more limited as time passes."
