OVERVIEW

BENEFIT

Repayment Plan

Pay back your past-due payments together with your regular payments over an extended period of time.

Allows you time to catch up on late payments without having to come up with a lump sum and stops late charges from assessing while you adhere to the repayment plan.

Forbearance Plan

Make reduced mortgage payments or no mortgage payments for a specific period of time.

Allows additional time to improve your financial situation.

Loan Modification

Receive modified terms of your mortgage to make it more affordable or manageable after successfully making 3 to 4 payments during a trial period plan.

Permanently modifies your mortgage so that your payments or terms are more manageable as a permanent solution to a long-term or permanent hardship.  In most cases, past due payments are added into your principal balance.

Pre-Foreclosure Sale (Short Sale)

Sell your home and pay off a portion of your mortgage balance when you owe more on the home than it is worth.

Allows you to transition out of your home without going through foreclosure. In some cases, relocation assistance may be available.
