Struggling with high mortgage payments or the threat of home foreclosoure is a nightmare. The good news is that homeowners have options. Understanding those options is key to saving your home & making your home more affordable. Below we have a basic overview of options available to homeowners looking to avoid foreclosure and make their payments more affordable.
One the most popular options for homeowners is a Loan Modification. A Loan Modification is when a mortgage note is modified or altered because of the homeowner's inability to pay the note. This is done with out actually refinancing, which plays a significant role since so many homeowners have credit issues and negative equity. Homeowners experiencing a financial hardship are more likely to get approved for a loan modification. 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.
Other Alternatives to Foreclosure
Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure
In most cases if a home fails to be sold during a short sale the lender may consider a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure. A deed-in-lieu of foreclosure will allow the homeowner to transfer ownership of the property to the lender. The lender will sell the home and receive a portion or all of the balance you owe on the mortgage note.
A forbearance agreement is an agreement between a borrower and the lender that will allow the homeowner to make up missed mortgage payments. If you are late on your mortgage because of a temporary situation then a forbearance agreement may provide relief. If your trouble extends past a temporary situation then a forbearance agreement may just act as a band aid for a larger problem.
The most common way of resolving a loan default is to work out a plan (Repayment Plan) which will let you repay part of the delinquency each month, along with you regular monthly installment. If your financial circumstances have stabilized this may be a great option. If you are still dealing with a hardship then this options may not work.
Bankruptcy cannot prevent foreclosure, but it can certainly delay it. Once you file, the court can enter a "stay" which would cease all collection actions, sales and foreclosures. The lender must then file for a motion to "lift the stay" and proceed with the foreclosure. This may give a homeowner time to save money to get current on their mortgage,find a place to rent or even sell the home with a short sale.
A short sale on a house is selling it for less than what is owed on the house. The sales price will be short of the mortgage balance. If the lender approves the short sale then the owner will not be responsible for the difference. While you are trying to sell the house you will be responsible for the mortgage and taxes.
Why can't I just Refinance my Mortgage?
You may qualify for a refinance. If you think you are a good candidate
for a refinance then contact your lender. Lenders and the government
have made every attempt to create programs for homeowners needing to
refinance with bad credit or negative equity. The issue is that some
banks are not participating in programs established by the government
and many homeowners just do not qualify due to income issues.
On the other hand some good news was announced on 10-24-2011 on MSNBC.com. A leading housing regulator on Monday announced changes to a government refinancing program that could help up to one million homeowners of the estimated 11 million whose homes are worth less than their mortgage. This program may help underwater homeowners refinance regardless of their LTV (Loan to Value).
This means homowners that are upside down on their mortgage may have
options for locking in a lower mortgage payment and rate.
