A credit counselor

Friendly foreclosure or a deed-in-lieu

A friendly foreclosure basically means you hand back the keys to the property without The lender, financial institution or the bank having to go to court to force you. The advantage for the homeowner is that they will be immediately released by The lender, financial institution or the bank from the loan and from incurring additional mortgage payments, surcharges and assorted legal fees.

Also, the friendly foreclosure is considered a mortgage default which is less disastrous to your credit rating than a forced foreclosure.

Private Lenders

Private Investor may lend you money on short term basis to buy you some time so that you may sell your property at market value.


Refinance You may “redeem” the mortgage by paying the full amount owing on the mortgage, including the interest, principal and any penalties or costs, before the sale of your property at public auction. This way you keep the equity built up in your home. This may mean:

getting a new mortgage from a different lender in order to pay out the first mortgage. This can be difficult. Sometimes a mortgage broker can help. Mostly "B" lenders which are also known as equity lenders are extremely helpful to refinance.


Declare Bankruptcy: it may help you to declare bankruptcy on other debts so that you may concentrate your finances on paying the mortgage, and may deal with a deficiency claim if the property is sold at public auction and there is a shortfall. You should talk to a credit counselor or trustee in bankruptcy first.
