The Foreclosure Process
Nevada is a non-judicial foreclosure state. That means that your lender does not have to go to court to foreclose on your mortgage; they simply have to follow steps in the statute. The first flow chart below explains how the foreclosure process works.The second flow charts describes the process used when the borrower requests mediation under NRS 107.086.
Foreclosure Mediation Process
Independent Foreclosure Review
Homeowners whose primary residence was part of a foreclosure action between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010, and whose home loan was serviced by a participating servicer, may be eligible for an Independent Foreclosure Review.
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (federal bank regulators) have required an Independent Foreclosure Review by an independent consultant to identify eligible customers who may have been financially injured due to errors, misrepresentations or other deficiencies in their foreclosure process. If the review finds that financial injury occurred, the customer may receive compensation or other remedy.

Concerned About Losing Your Home?
If you are facing foreclosure, beware of scammers! Generally, you do not need to pay anyone to seek a loan modification for you. You should be very suspicious if someone knocks on your door telling you that they can save your home. You can do it yourself, or there are organizations that will do this for free. Our non-profit partner Financial Guidance Center (702-364-0344) works with homeowners to help modify their mortgages for free, regardless of income. You may also visit the Hardest Hit Funds website for information.
Be aware, that scammers monitor the recorder’s website to find out who is facing foreclosure. Then they approach the homeowner with promises of help. They make their papers look very official so be skeptical, especially if they ask for money.
