I have been paying it since April 2007 and recently completed a loan modification but circumstances have changed yet again and cannot keep the property. Already have missed one payment.

thanks for the help guys. Not sure how to mark this question as resolved.

    Generally speaking a foreclosure or related lawsuit must happen in the place where the property sits. If that occurs, you will need a lawyer who is licensed to practice in North Carolina.
