  3. I think that a property foreclosures can have a major effect on the client’s life. Property foreclosures can have a 8 to several years negative impact on a client’s credit report. Any borrower that has applied for a home loan or just about any loans for instance, knows that a worse credit rating is definitely, the more complicated it is to secure a decent loan. In addition, it can affect any borrower’s capability to find a reasonable place to let or hire, if that gets to be the alternative housing solution. Thanks for your blog post.
