Counseling Services Agreement
We understand that you are contacting us to help deal with a mortgage problem. As a HUD- approved housing counseling agency, we are here to provide free, confidential housing counseling to help you resolve your housing concerns. One thing to clarify at the start: We are a counseling agency, not a financial institution. We cannot refinance your existing mortgage. Nor can we lend you money to cure your mortgage delinquency and bring your mortgage current. Instead, we will help you assess your current financial/housing situation, clarify your housing goals, explain the available options for working with your mortgage company, and explore other options. We may also assist you in working with your mortgage lender. In addition, we may put you in touch with other community resources that could help with your overall financial situation. We will not tell you what you must do. Instead, we help you explore various options, and possible solutions. Ultimately, we let you decide the course of action to follow.
CCOA offers other counseling services, such as a credit report review and a debt management plan. Though your counselor may discuss these other services with you, you are not obligated to use these, or any other services/resources mentioned to you. The housing counselor conducting your session has been trained and certified according to standards set by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. While our counselors have training in a variety of housing issues, they are not lawyers and cannot provide you with legal advice. You will receive a written Plan of Action upon completion of the counseling session. It will lay out the counselor's recommendations for resolving your mortgage concerns.
Statement of Privacy and Confidentiality
CCOA is committed to maintaining your privacy. All information shared with us will be managed within legal and ethical considerations. We will only release your personal financial information to your mortgage company or creditors with your specific authorization. We may also use case file information for the purpose of researching, evaluating and improving our services, in which case your anonymity will be maintained by using your client number, or by compiling statistical data. In all other situations, your financial information may be released to appropriate individuals or agencies only upon your written request, or when we have been served by a valid subpoena.
Access to nonpublic personal information about you is restricted to those employees who need the information to provide services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.
