Help for the Unemployed

If you are one of many homeowners who have lost their job, relief from your mortgage payments may be right around the corner. With the help of new guidelines set up by the federal government, some lenders may be forced to offer forbearance.

Forbearance means a lender defers some of a borrower’s payments until a later date. The deferred amount may be all or part of one or more of the  payments that are due. When a lender feels that a borrower’s hardship is only temporary they may consider forbearance.

The new requirements to qualify for forbearance, are a part of Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), and may really be a help to homeowners who are out of work.

Forbearance can last a minimum of three months and could extend to six months or longer. After the period of forebearance has expired, and if the homeowner still cannot afford the payments, they will than be considered for a HAMP loan modification or other HAMP programs instead of foreclosure.
