Loan Modifications, Forbearance, Repayment
Are you struggling to keep up with mortgage payments? Are you wondering
what financing options are available to help you avoid losing your home
to foreclosure? There are many different foreclosure defense strategies
a debtor can use to avoid losing his or her home. Here are a few of the
most common legal options you may want to consider if you are unable to
keep up with your mortgage payments:
Loan Modification: Foreclosure can be very costly and time consuming. Many mortgage lenders
are willing to negotiate a modification of an existing home loan, as long
as it means they can avoid the foreclosure process. A loan modification
can extend the term of the loan, reduce the interest rate or change the
interest rate from a variable to a fixed rate. To qualify for a loan modification
you must be able to show evidence of a financial hardship, you will be
required to provide all the documentation necessary for your lender's
consideration and you will need to demonstrate your ability to make timely
payments according to the modified agreement.
Forbearance: Not all individuals require a long-term solution such as can be provided
through a loan modification. A forbearance offers a more immediate and
temporary solution to a financial hardship a borrower may face. If you
have found yourself unable to make money payments as a result of an emergency
medical situation or some other circumstance, we advise you consider a
forbearance agreement. With this type of agreement your lender may allow
you to miss a specified number of payments, providing you bring your account
current at the end of the forbearance period.
Repayment Plan: Even a temporary financial hardship could leave an individual unable to
keep up with his or her financial obligations. If you have missed payments
and want to resolve your mortgage arrears so you will not be subject to
foreclosure proceedings, a repayment plan may be right for you. A repayment
plan can be done through bankruptcy or on its own. Our attorneys can help
you negotiate a payment plan that will allow you to catch up on past due
payments by spreading out the amount you owe over a specified period of
time. With a repayment plan in place, you can avoid any further collection
efforts and keep your home.
