Five Things Never To Tell Your Mortgage Lender When Facing Foreclosure


1. Never discuss your household finances over the phone with the collection
department. What you don’t know is that you are being qualified and not know it.
This is the easiest and fastest way to get a turn down. Request a homeowners
assistance package so that you can submit the require information.

2. Never tell them you are broke. Even though you may qualify for a special
forbearance or modification, you will still need legal fees and foreclosure cost.
These fees cannot be put back into the loan. Your lender prepaid them to their
attorney to start the foreclosure process.

3. Never tell them you do not live in the property. Under FHA guidelines, before you
are granted any workout, you must reside in the property. If you have moved out and
your property became an investment property, you better get someone in there with a
lease or rental contract before the sale date.

4. Never tell them you are not working, in most cases you will not be approved.
Depending on your sale date, your mortgage lender may not be able to qualify
you for a special forbearance because of the amount of time left.

If you can’t find a job, I suggest you start a small business months before your sale
date, make some money, deposit your income and prepare a Profit and Loss Statement
to prove income. Telling them you get paid cash and you can’t prove it won’t hold

5. Never tell them the reason you fell behind is because you mismanage your
money. How do you expect for them to give you a workout when you still have
the potential of falling behind again?
