Options for Houstonians when Coronavirus (COVID-19) affects your Mortgage
By Hugo Diaz
Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to disrupt communities around the world. Here in Texas, the disease has spread into our major cities, including the city of Houston. Houston homeowners are struggling to pay bills, including mortgage payments and as more businesses close, recently terminated homeowners are concerned with housing costs and their affordability.
Local and state governments are taking substantial steps to provide relief to homeowners in Houston and across Texas. The effect of these measures have led to temporary suspension on evictions and foreclosures in certain counties throughout Texas with the hope of lessening homeowner’s financial burden. Therefore, it is imperative for homeowners in Houston to know the different types of relief afforded by their local government. It is also important for Houston homeowners to remember, the relief measures are temporary and will not provide a long term solution.
Homeowners in Houston should not fear loss of their home due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) because there are some of us still open for business. The attorneys at Guerra Days Law Group are proactively offering help to troubled homeowners with legal assistance in eviction and foreclosure proceedings across the entire state of Texas.
