North Jersey Lawyer Advises Clients on Mortgage Loan Forbearance
Dedicated advocate helps homeowners seeking temporary relief
Mortgage loan forbearance relieves the burden that homeowners face while they deal with temporary financial difficulties. Under a forbearance program, required mortgage payments are lessened or eliminated for a certain period of time. When standard payments resume, the borrower is responsible for the unpaid amount and possibly additional fees.
Trustworthy firm gives debtors a chance to reduce or delay payments
A job loss, medical crisis, home repair or some other expense could leave you without the funds you need to satisfy your mortgage obligation for a certain amount of time. If it seems that the problem is temporary, mortgage loan forbearance can give you the opportunity to catch up without worrying about possible foreclosure. If this seems like a viable option, it’s crucial to present a strong case that will persuade your lender to offer this type of relief. At the Law Offices of James C. Zimmermann, we can take you through each aspect of forbearance, such as:
- Temporary nature of the financial trouble — Forbearance typically lasts for several months, so it is not the right remedy for homeowners with a long-term inability to pay their monthly mortgage. Our firm will assess your situation and help determine if forbearance is a suitable option.
- Demonstration of hardship — We communicate with your lender to demonstrate the hardship you are facing so that you have the best chance of having your payment requirements delayed and/or reduced until you can overcome your financial difficulties.
- Commitment to make missed payments at a later time — By analyzing your present and future income and expenses, our firm makes sure that you have the ability to reimburse the lender for the funds that are delayed during the forbearance period.
Our firm has offices in Sussex, Passaic, Bergen and Essex counties, and we draw on our resources and the knowledge we’ve gained through nearly two decades of foreclosure defense and debt relief work to pursue the best possible outcome for each client.
