Foreclosure in 04210>Question Details

Jllavoie, Home Buyer in 04210

I am late on my mortgage and struggling to catch up, today the mortgage brokers called and have offered to settle my loan.

Asked by Jllavoie, 04210 Wed Oct 14, 2009

What does this do to your credit and what would happen to the 2nd loan? Also its a Condo so who would be responisble for paying the condo dues?

Help the community by answering this question:


Late payments definitely hurt your credit score and account for a 1/3 of what makes up your credit score. The best thing you can do is contact your lender sooner rather then later so they can work with you. Many people wait and wait, not a good idea. A short sale has less of a negative effect on your credit then a foreclosure does but you have to prove a valid hardship. Typically condo dues that are in arrears are due at the closing so the bank would most likely have to pay if you don't have the money.

I hope this works out for you!

Hi,what kind of settlement? Second loan will want their money. You should start taking to the second mortgage too.
You are responsible for the HOA as long as the property is under your name. Same as the house bills.
Please explain the offer.

Just a follow up...if you can do a short sale on the condo, that would have much less negative impact on your credit score than a foreclosure.
