A Modification by Any Other Name

The following is an excerpt from the continued reading we at Loan Lawyers, LLC are involved with.

A forbearance agreement is an option that is being used by many homeowners these days in order to avoid foreclosure and bankruptcy. And while a forbearance agreement may not affect your credit score and may help some solve their problems, people should be aware of the pitfalls involved. One of the biggest problems that people have with forbearance agreements is that many homes lack the equity needed to get a bank to accept such an agreement. In order for the bank to feel comfortable tacking on interest and missed payments on the back end of the loan, the lender wants to see that the home has sufficient equity to support the extra costs. With a forbearance agreement, the lender agrees to let the missed payments accrue until the balloon is due, but, if the mortgage trumps the homes value, or is close to it, the lender will not be willing to allow a forbearance agreement to take place. Another issue with forbearance agreements is the fact that even homeowners with equity may still not be able to handle the penalties and interest that will be due in 1 or 2 years when they have to pay the back payments in full. The homeowner will have to immediately begin to make payments with a forbearance agreement and not miss any more payments in the future, if they due they will be right back in foreclosure, and end up losing their home.
