Can I make my mortgage company stop calling me prior to me being 15 days late? I have paid all of my mortgage payments on time for 3 years and now that I am running an average of 15 days late, they call me every day. I then have to sit through this lecture about how if I would pay my bill on time then they would not call. If I could pay my bill on time, I would.

From the perspective of your mortgage company, your payment history over the past 3 years really does not matter. It cares about whether or not you will be able to continue making your mortgage payments. That is why you are getting calls whenever you are late.

The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) says that debt collectors cannot harass a consumer who owes a past due debt and what you are experiencing sounds like harassment. However, the law only applies to outside debt collectors. So, if you are being called constantly by a collector who is an employee of your mortgage company, then unfortunately, the constant calls are legal. However, if you are being contacted by an outside collector, then the calls are probably illegal and you should set up an appointment with a consumer law attorney in your area who helps people resolve their debt collection problems.

i get an average of 4 to 8 calls a day from my mortgage company saying that I am past due. my bill is due on the 1st and late on the 15th. they told me that they can start calling me on the 2nd and even if i make a promise to pay date, they will still call me every day and must speak to me. is this legal? mind you I have only been 30+ days late in 15 years.
