Here are some of the possible solutions that we may be able to offer you.

Option 1: Repayment Plan or Special Forbearance

Madison Management Services, LLC may be able to arrange a plan based on your financial situation to spread out the repayment of your past-due balance over an extended period of time.

 

Option 2: Loan Modification

It may be possible to modify your mortgage contract to incorporate your past-due amounts and sometimes even reduce your monthly payment. This may be done by extending the loan term, lowering the interest rate or capitalizing past-due interest. However, this is a legal change to the terms of the loan and involves obtaining approval from the loan owner or investor.

  • Income must be stable:
  1. No Temporary Source of Income
  2. No Unemployment or Temporary Social Security
  3. Pensions are allowed as long as they are permanent

Option 4: Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure

As a last resort, you may be able to voluntarily “give back” your property to the lender. You won’t be able to stay in your home, but it is not as damaging to your credit rating as a foreclosure. This option is only available if there are no other liens or judgments on the property.

  • (Small liens or judgments that may be negotiated to accept less may still qualify for a DIL.)
  • Upon approval, property must be vacant and “open house clean” or “broom swept clean”.
  • The customer must be willing to allow MMS to evaluate the property’s interior to gain a proper value for the workout ***Note – The customer may provide their own appraisal if available
