If you are behind
on your mortgage payments, you have many options. The one you do not
want to take is the option that leads you to foreclosure. Foreclosure
is the legal means that your lender uses to recuperate the amount owed
on your mortgage...by selling your home from under you.
The other options are much more favorable and prevents foreclosure
2. Compromise on your existing mortgage. If your lender is willing,
temporarily change the terms of your loan: reduce the interest rate,
principal portions of payments, or extend the amortization to reduce
overall payment obligations.
3. Repayment plan. Pay a portion of your back payments and agree to
pay the rest in addition to your regular mortgage payment.
4. Repurchase after foreclosure.
