HOA/CONDO Fee Default Assistance

Do you know anyone who is behind on their HOA/Condo fee default? Asian-American Homeownership Counseling (AAHC) has a program called “Home Savers”, which can provide up to $4,000 to pay off the delinquent amount through a no interest micro loan (repayment up to 24-months (within budget)). Homeowners can avoid foreclosure, eviction, judgment and possible salary garnishment, and recover their homeownership rights within their HOA/Condo community. “Home Savers” also helps with property tax defaults for senior homeowners with reverse mortgages.
