I have a defaulted HELOC but am current with my first mortgage payment and want to stay in the home. Can a collection agency forclose on my house?
I think they can as long as they want to pay off the first. Best thing to do is to do a settlement with them and pay them 10-50 cents on the dollar.

The closing date of my condo is August 9th. Will I get the keys that day or another day?
