Credit card debt is one of the types of debt consumers sometimes hold. Problems with high debt, including high credit card debt, can have major impacts on consumers. Thus, it is worth keeping an eye on trends regarding credit card debt.
These days, many people are facing foreclosure, especially in Florida. Recently, there have been many instances of banks providing inadequate, if not fraudulent, documentation regarding homes in foreclosure. Consequently, borrowers are no longer allowing banks to take their homes without a fight. The "fight" typically occurs through the court system. Homeowners seeking to avoid foreclosure will hire an experienced foreclosure attorney to help them through this complex and confusing process.
It can take a long time for the foreclosure process to move from the time a lender issues a foreclosure notice to the time the homeowner is evicted. But the time between the homeowner's first missed payment and that eviction is even longer. Last year, homeowners across the country were an average of 507 days behind on payments by the time foreclosures were completed. That is more than 100 days longer that the average in 2009.
