If you’re worried about falling behind on your mortgage repayments and potentially having a default on your credit report, you might be wondering how you can avoid this scenario from happening to you. The easiest way to avoid a mortgage default is to stay on top of your mortgage repayments. If making your repayments is not possible, your lender may foreclose on your home. J Daniels & Associates may be able to assist you in slowing down the foreclosure process.
Read on below to find out everything you need to know about mortgage defaults, and how to avoid them.
A mortgage default generally happens when a borrower is 90 days or more behind in making a repayment on their home loan. A default can be listed on your credit file, which can, in turn, affect your credit rating and have implications if you apply for other loans in the future.
No one takes out a mortgage expecting to default on their repayments. The easiest way to stop a mortgage default from happening to you is by making your mortgage repayments on time so that your default does not lead to your lender starting the foreclosure process.
J Daniels & Associates may be able to slow down the foreclosure process for you to catch up on your missed mortgage payments, liaise with your lender on your behalf, or explore other avenues of assistance for you.
If you do find yourself defaulting on a mortgage payment, you may find that there are several consequences. You might find that your lender will charge late fees on top of your debt, making the overall amount that you owe higher. These fees may differ depending on your lender.
Default on a mortgage payment will generally also be listed on your credit file. Depending on how many defaults are on your credit file, this could negatively affect your credit rating. You may also find that lenders are less willing to approve any loans that you apply for if you have previously defaulted on a mortgage.
