Over the past several years, I have met with numerous home owners who had fallen behind on their mortgages. In many of these cases, the homeowners have contacted their mortgage company seeking to modify the loan and stop any foreclosure proceedings. In each case, the mortgage company acted as if they would be happy to assist and indicated they would immediately be sending out a modification packet and made it sound as if a loan modification would be quickly forthcoming. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

Planning a wedding is stressful. You have to worry about the dress, flowers, food, invitations, centerpieces, favors, you get the idea. I am living this stress right now as my fiancé and I (who am I kidding? It’s mostly me) plan for our wedding this fall. It is easy to get lost in the details of the wedding and not think about life after the walk down the aisle. However, if an engaged couple isn't on the same page about financial matters, their marriage could be doomed before it even begins.

It is a noteworthy tax break for property owners in Allegheny County. Unfortunately not everyone happens to know about it.
