How long do I have before I lose my home? In Missouri, you could conceivably lose you home 21 days after you have missed your third payment. In Illinois the process generally takes longer. Regardless, the sooner you seek assistance if you have missed or are about to miss a mortgage payment, the more likely that you can negotiate a solution with your lender. In the Greater St. Louis area, you can call the United Way’s helpline at 1-800-427-4626 or 2-1-1 for information about trusted community resources you can turn to.
