Is A Mortgage Forbearance A Good Option For You?

If you are a home owner experiencing a short term or temporary financial hardship such as a job loss, illness, disability, divorce, death of a wage earner or other financial setback, a mortgage forbearance may provide temporary payment relief.

A mortgage forbearance allows you and your mortgage company to agree to temporarily suspend or reduce your monthly mortgage payments for a specific amount of time. This will allow you to deal with your short term financial problems and give you time to bring your mortgage payments current.

A few of the benefits of a mortgage forbearance are:

  • Lower or temporarily suspend your monthly payments to give you time to improve your financial situation.
  • Less damage to your credit score than a foreclosure.
  • You can stay in your home and avoid foreclosure.

A mortgage forbearance reduces your monthly payment or stops it completely, during the forbearance period. If you qualify, you and your mortgage company will discuss and determine the length of forbearance, the suspension or reduction of the mortgage payment, and the terms of repayment.

After the forbearance period has ended, you will need to repay the amount of your mortgage payments that were reduced or suspended, however you will typically not have to repay the missed amounts all at once.

Other possible repayment options will allow you to add a specific amount to your payments each month until the missed or suspended amounts are repaid, or to then set up a loan modification plan.

First, compile your financial information. Make sure you have your basic financial and loan information such as your mortgage statements, monthly debt payments and other loan paperwork, income items such as pay stubs, and income tax returns for when you call your mortgage company.

Be ready to explain your current situation and why you are or will have trouble making your mortgage payment. Your lender will need to understand why you are having trouble making the payments to be able to find the right solution for you.

Then contact your mortgage company to see if you qualify for one of their solutions.
