A:
The first thing you must do is keep an open line of communication with your mortgage company. Call the mortgage company and speak with the Customer Service Representative. Tell them of your plan to pay. And when you will send them the money. And make sure you do what you said you will do in the time window you said you will respond.

Q: What happens if I make arrangements to pay my late house payments and I still do not have the money?
