Always have some savings for the monthly mortgage payments available with you. It is important to save money for a tough time but especially crucial if you are having a mortgage in one of the toughest financial times in recent history. If you lose your job or for some reason are unable to pay your mortgage amount to Bank of America, use the savings to cover for that month.
Once the going gets tough, start the process of communication with the bank. It is important to stay in touch with the related personnel so that you keep them updated in case you are paying less than the required amount or have missed a payment altogether.
Special Assistance Programs
There are special assistance programs that are available for eligible homeowners. See if you are eligible for such help as it will allow you to keep the house and avoid foreclosure. It will be partial help but it will be much better than having no help at all.
Get Special Terms
Request the person looking after your mortgage in Bank of America to allow you some room in case you are going through a rough financial phase. Get your communication going in writing and try to get easier terms on your mortgage for a given period of time where you can recover and regain the ability to make the payments in full and on time. A few months of breathing space can help you avoid a foreclosure.
