Paralegal Swamped with Foreclosure Work

North Carolina paralegal Evan Watkins has no shortage of work auctioning properties in foreclosure. In 2008, the foreclosure rate in Brunswick County, North Carolina almost doubled from the previous year.

On Thursday, paralegal Evan Watkins only had a few foreclosed properties on auction, but still he has auctioned off his share of properties. “Four or five a week, but of course I’m only one paralegal, and we handle counties all over the state.”

Do you know someone facing the possibility of foreclosure? Experts recommend that homeowners contact their lenders immediately if they think they may get behind on their mortgage payments. The Federal Trade Commission provides a well-written consumer bulletin, “Mortgage Payments Sending You Reeling? Here’s What to Do” at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/homes/rea04.shtm.
