Options to Avoid Foreclosure
Reinstatement – Pay the total amount you owe in one lump sum payment by a specific date. This option allows you to avoid foreclosure by bringing your mortgage current if you can show you have funds that will become available at a specific date in the future.
Repayment Plan – Pay back your past-due payments together with your regular payments over an extended period of time. This option gives you time to catch up on late payments without having to come up with a lump sum.
Forbearance Plan – Make reduced mortgage payments or no mortgage payments for a specific period of time. This option gives you time to improve your financial situation and possibly qualify for a better option than would be available right now.
Modification – Receive modified mortgage terms to make it more affordable or manageable after successfully making payments during a “trial period” (e.g., completing a three month trial period plan) that requires payment of the approximate amount of the modified payment.
