FREE MORTGAGE ADVICE
In order to save you money & make the mortgage process much more transparent the Homeowners Consumer Center along with the National Mortgage Complaint Center has developed a 20 page handbook that will explain mortgage do's & don'ts along with a glimpse of what some of the most important mortgage documents look like. We have tried to design this as helpful advice designed to save you money and prevent you from being over charged or cheated by your mortgage lender. We have done this because most consumers are never given this type of information.
