What is Bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy is a means for good people in bad situations to legally get a fresh start. There are certain requirements, but generally, anyone meeting those requirements has a legal right to file bankruptcy. As soon as a bankruptcy petition is filed, all creditors are prohibited from attempting to collect on all debts listed in the petition until the Court either discharges you from these debts or determines that you are not entitled to such relief.
What is a foreclosure?
A foreclosure is a legal proceeding that is started by a lender after a home owner has failed to pay his/her mortgage. After a home owner has failed to make their payments on time (usually at least 90 days, but a lender does not have to wait before holding a borrower in default after even one missed payment), a lender will serve notice of default on the borrower as required by the loan documents (specifically the Mortgage in New York State). If the borrower does not cure their default by the time stated in the default notice, the lender can commence foreclosure proceedings in accordance with the law to take actual possession of the home. If a foreclosure is permitted, the borrower loses title to the home and the lender becomes the official owner of the home.
What is an acceptable Hardship situation?
There is no one answer. Because every person is unique, each homeowner has a unique set of circumstances. Generally, lenders consider divorce, marital separation, loss of employment, death of spouse, co-borrower or family member, illness, job relocation, and/or military service to be acceptable reasons to consider a loan modification. By including a serious, detailed hardship letter as part of your modification application, the lender is given the documentation necessary to learn about your specific circumstances.
