Reviewing your Financial Situation and Exploring Options to Avoid Foreclosure
We know that some borrowers are unable to afford their mortgage payments, and wish to explore options to avoid foreclosure.
Some of the options that may be available to avoid foreclosure include:
- We may be able offer a loan workout to allow you to resume payments at the current payment amount, and repay a portion of your delinquent payments each month.
- We may be able to provide you with a loan modification that would lower your interest rate and monthly payment for a period of time.
- We may be able to delay the start of any foreclosure proceedings, or temporarily suspend any foreclosure proceeding already in process, while you attempt to sell your home, refinance, raise money, or move.
- We may be able to consider a deed in lieu of foreclosure, whereby you offer to transfer ownership of your home to the bank without any foreclosure process. You should know that this course is not often workable, particularly to borrowers with other loans or liens or their home.
Of course, every situation is different, and we cannot guarantee that our efforts will be successful in avoiding foreclosure.
