Mortgage stress self-help guide

Cover image for Mortgage stress guideThis self-help guide will help you to get the best outcome if you are having trouble paying your mortgage.

It has information about your options at every stage - whether you are just beginning to have problems meeting repayments, you have received a default notice, you have received a Writ, or the sheriff is at your door.

It is preferable to seek legal assistance sooner rather than later as limitation dates may apply which could affect the options available to you.

You may need to go through some or all of the guide. Reference to court and enforcement processes are only applicable in Western Australia.

If you haven't used this guide before, we suggest you look at Getting started.
