Thankfully there are options available to you if you are looking to stay in your home.

Loan Modification

The most popular program, a Loan Modification is a change to an existing loan to a more affordable level by a lender in response to a borrower's long-term inability to repay it. Loan modifications typically involve a reduction in the principal balance, interest rate or an extension of the length of the term of the loan, or a combination of the three. You may qualify if you have recovered from a hardship and can afford the new payment amount. Most lenders can work with home owners, even if they have poor credit and have a foreclosure date since they do not want your home.

Forbearance Agreement

Depending on your situation, your bank may offer you a solution to repay your missed payments and avoid foreclosure with a Mortgage Forbearance Agreement. This agreement is made between a mortgage lender and delinquent borrower in which the lender agrees not to exercise its legal right to foreclose on a mortgage and the borrower agrees to a mortgage plan that will, over a certain time period, bring the borrower current on their payments. A Mortgage Forbearance Agreement is a temporary solution for delinquent borrowers designed for borrowers who have short-term financial problems caused by an unforeseen hardship such as health problems or unemployment. Usually Mortgage Forbearance Agreements allow a minimum of 4 months to postpone monthly mortgage payments, all the way up to 12 monthly payments at the maximum.

Principal Reduction

A Principal Reduction is a process whereby your loan modification attorney assists in negotiating down the total amount of the principal that you owe on the loan to reflect current value of the property. Usually the interest rate is reduced to current market rates and your monthly mortgage payment is lower.

However a Principal Reduction is difficult because the bank or lender is not making as much profit, and may even avoid mentioning principal reduction as an option. Just a $200 a month reduction equals tens of thousands of dollars less profit for the bank over the life of the mortgage.

You may modify your own mortgage directly with your lender, use resources at HUD, or find out now if you qualify for a Loan Modification Plan for free, just fill out the no obligation form below:

The National Mortgage Assistance Center (NMAC) educates the general public and refers your contact information, at no cost to you, to foreclosure prevention law firms to evaluate qualifications for a mortgage payment reduction. NMAC is not a non-profit organization and not affiliated or approved with any government program. By applying with NMAC does not guarantee a loan modification or foreclosure prevention, and the lender may not approve to change your loan. Do not transfer or surrender property titles at a below-market price to anyone.

Do not bypass the lender and make payments directly anyone else. It is not necessary to pay a third party to arrange for a loan modification or other form of forbearance from your mortgage lender or servicer. You may call your lender directly to ask for a change in your loan terms. Nonprofit housing counseling agencies also offer these and other forms of borrower assistance free of charge. A list of nonprofit housing counseling agencies approved by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is available from your local HUD office or by visiting www.hud.gov.
