What qualifies as financial hardship?

Banks are more and more willing to work with borrowers that are experiencing financial hardships who are likely to default on their mortgages. What constitutes as a hardship varies from bank to bank.

Commonly accepted hardships can include:

  • Family illness or injury
  • Small business downturn
  • Divorce or separation of domestic partners
  • Illness or injury to extended family, especially if it forces a relocation
  • Adjustment in mortgage payment or unforeseen increase in living expenses
  • Job loss or significant loss of income
  • Job relocation when the property is equity deficient

Banks usually will not consider a short sale unless you are in default of your loan. If you are afraid you will soon be in default, some banks can accept the paperwork to begin your file. Consult with our Daytona Beach short sales attorneys before you make any definitive decisions.

A Short Sale could be the Answer

Banks would prefer to settle your matter with you rather than taking the property via foreclosure. Lenders win out too by accepting a short sale as opposed to taking the title to a foreclosed property.

Complete foreclosure is severely damaging to your credit, even more so than bankruptcy in some cases. By avoiding a foreclosure and retiring the debt through a short sale, you can usually return to normal borrowing money for loans quickly.
