How Can I Stop A Foreclosure?
Author: Billy Alvaro
There are several ways to stop a foreclosure on your home. What method will work best for you will depend on your personal situation.
The best way to prevent a foreclosure naturally is to bring your mortgage account current. This will include all attorney fees, back taxes and insurance. Chances are if you fell behind for more than one month then you will most likely not suddenly have the payment you were behind. Although there are certainly some situations were you might be able to recover from a temporary set back.
If you can not bring your account current of your own accord with out assistance then there are a few ways to get an adjustment by your loan institution.
Get a temporary deferment from the bank - This consists of a grace period provided by the bank. The deferred payments will be attached to the end of the loan. This will not change your payment amount, but rather just give you temporary relief from payments.
Mortgage modifications - These modifications are usually an adjustment to the current interest rate. In any cases what happens is that you take out a mortgage with an adjustable interest rate and after a set period of time this rate elevates, bringing your monthly payments with it. This inflated rate can cause your monthly mortgage payments to increase by several hundred dollars.
A new interest rate provided by a mortgage modification will usually be a fixed amount that is less than the current adjustable rate. This may not necessarily be lower than the original amount of the interest of the loan at time of inception but it will be a rate that is lower than your current rate. By lowering your interest rate, your monthly payments are reduced.
Another method of reducing your high monthly payments with a mortgage modification is to extend the terms of the loan, for instance you may go from a 15 year mortgage to a 20 or 30 year loan. While this will lower your monthly payments it will not reduce the overall amount of the loan and in fact will actually increase the amount of interest paid over the life of the loan.
Forbearance - This is a temporary discontinuation of payments to allow you a chance to catch your breath. This is similar to a deferment and is really just a stall tactic, not an adjustment. You will eventually have to return to making the same payment levels you were prior to the forbearance.
What method will work best for you will depend on your current situation. You will probably benefit from a mortgage modification if you can afford to make lowered payments consistently. While your loan institution will make the decision as to whether to approve a modification, they are not in the business of modifying mortgages and may have very stringent guidelines for mortgage modifications. As a result you may be well advised to consult an agency that performs negotiations with lending institutions for the purpose of a mortgage modification. Together you and the agency can negotiate with the bank to keep you from being forced to face a foreclosure.
