If you are behind on your mortgage payments, already defaulted on your loan, or facing foreclosure, time is of the essence and figuring out a solution is a top priority. The possibly of foreclosure can be extremely stressful in addition to being full of uncertainty when it comes to knowing what to do.
Typically when a homeowner has already tried to work out a repayment plan or adjust their mortgage with the lender without success they either file bankruptcy or walk away and let their property go into foreclosure. Serious consideration should be taken regarding how your credit will be affected prior to deciding on either of these options. Having late payments are far less damaging than having a bankruptcy or foreclosure on your credit report. Late payments factor into your credit score for 2 years, chapter 13 bankruptcies and foreclosures stay on your credit for 7 years and chapter 7 bankruptcies remain for 10 years. Obviously, credit is important and necessary for almost every endeavor so poor credit affects the quality of your life. It is also particularly crucial to salvage your credit if you plan to purchase another home in the near future instead of renting long-term.
