Not paying these bills can be a problem and if they are forgotten for several years, the consequences can be enormous. The late fees are hefty. Using Placer County in Califo...
The other side of the coin for elderly parents, from yesterday's post - many do want to stay in their own homes. For them, a reverse mortgage might be a help. Smart Money has a good article on the Sandwich Generation, including a section covering this topic - http://budurl.com/ReverseMtg .
