How to repair credit damage from foreclosures?
Because of a marital separation we incurred a mortgage foreclosure on our primary residence. My husband took control of our rental property, but before our divorce could be filed and finalized (still isn't by the way) he managed to let our rental property go to foreclosure as well. So now I have two foreclosures yanking down my credit score. How can I begin to repair this damage????

Set up some type of payment plan. Also talk with your mortgage company to see if they will remove some of the derrogatory marks that have been reported on your file(let them know what's going on). Like lates and slow pays etc. It that fails then give these guys a call Credit Pro's 1-877-235-0324. They can help.

Unless you have a few extra lifetimes to repay a bunch of bad debt, i'd recommend speaking to a lawyer to see if a fast and cheap BK is in your best interest. The sooner the better! If they foreclose, they can still come after you for the remaining balance. Once you file a BK, its over and they can no longer come after you. This will put all of your woes behind you and on track to a better future!
