Foreclosures are increasing due to unemployment, falling wages, excessive debt obligations, and plunging home values. There are serious consequences for those unable to pay mortgage payments. Several options are available to avoid foreclosure, however many people are unaware of the ways in which they can safeguard their property and assets from creditors.

Borrowers frequently neglect letters and other notifications that can be extremely damaging. The best way to prevent foreclosure is to file a Notice of Default. The proper communication between borrowers and lenders can help to prevent legal problems from arising.

A few important ways through which one can avoid foreclosure are listed below:

Interact with the lender:

It is important to maintain interaction with lenders to resolve repayment issues as smoothly as possible. Most often, lenders will not look to foreclose due to decreasing home values. If possible, it is best to arrange a better repayment plan suitable to present financial conditions. Borrowers must be able to assure the lender of their ability to pay the new repayment plan.

Debt forgiveness:

Debt forgiveness allows borrows to delay payments by up to two months under certain financial conditions. Lenders may check previous repayment records before agreeing to debt forgiveness.

Changing the terms of the loan:

If the mortgage loan is adjustable, borrowers may be able to modify the terms in order to repay the loan according to their financial situation. If foreclosure is unavoidable, there are certain effective ways in which to stop foreclosure from occurring.

Pre-foreclosure:

The lender may attempt to stop foreclosure by paying off the default amount during a grace period determined by state law.

Short sale:

If the property is worth less than the amount owed, borrowers can make use of a short sale. A short sale is the sale of the property in which the proceeds from selling the property will fall short of the balance of debts owed. It is often used as an alternative to foreclosure because it mitigates additional feeds to both the creditor and borrower.

Bankruptcy:

Bankruptcy is effective but often used as a last option to stop foreclosure. The lender must file for bankruptcy to avoid further complications. During the bankruptcy period, the creditor will not have the right to demand repayment. In this scenario, it is necessary to receive assistance from an expert bankruptcy attorney.
