Forbearance & Loan Modification in Camden County NJ

“I would personally like to thank Mr. Spiller for what he has done for me. He saved my house that my children & I have lived in for the last 22 years from foreclosure and I'm sure he would do for you as he has done for me.”

Forbearance & Loan Modification in Camden County NJ

COVID-19 has upset the order of everything in society. In the United States, we’re facing a level of change and ambiguity we’ve never seen before.

You might be struggling to make money because your hours and paycheck have been diminished. You might be furloughed or have even lost your job entirely. So, what do you do now if you’re struggling to pay your mortgage?

The Problem With Mortgage Forbearance

Forbearance could allow you to make lower mortgage payments or potentially suspend your payments completely. However, you’ll still have to pay back the money you owe eventually.

Here are a few more potential problems with mortgage forbearance:

  • You might have to make your payments in a large lump sum, which can be financially crippling.
  • Your payments might be lower, but you might not be able to afford standard payments once forbearance is over.
  • You might not be able to refinance your home for at least 12 months after the end of your forbearance.

Ultimately, these issues make forbearance only a band-aid solution that won’t help you long-term. If you’re hesitant to try getting a forbearance and you’re not in a position to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy at this time, your best opportunity may be a loan modification.

How You Can Modify Your Mortgage or Loan

A loan modification would stop foreclosure and alter the terms of your mortgage. Our bankruptcy attorneys can help you establish if a loan modification is a good option for your situation.

You may be able to modify your loan by:

  • Lowering your interest rate
  • Extending the term of the mortgage/loan (loan extension)
  • Placing your arrears at the end of the loan
  • Reducing the balance due on the mortgage (this is rare)
