Chief legal arbitrator, H. Hoover Hall, III of Harrison & Alexander, explains how an loss mitigation arbitrator can help homeowners compromise with lenders and find a reasonable solution for both parties regarding a mortgage foreclosure.
Like millions of Americans, some homeowners may be dangerously close to home foreclosure or facing the reality of those events already.
Many may think the only option is to throw in the towel and walk away from their home. However, there are ways to save a home from foreclosure, repair a low credit score, and begin rebuilding a stress-free life once again.
Most homeowners that are struggling with their mortgage or already in foreclosure cannot always find resolutions on their own, which is why a loss mitigation arbitrator can be a valuable asset in this fight.
There are many consequences of undergoing foreclosure that can affect a homeowner's life for years to come after foreclosure. The first and inevitable is a huge hit to their credit score. Exactly how much damage this will cause that homeowner, will depend on a variety of factors, but those events will remain a blight on one's credit history for up to seven years, making future loans, even those not related to homeownership, all the more difficult to obtain.
What is worse is that if that homeowner listed any other properties as security when applying for their original loan, the bank may have a right to seize those properties as well. Plus, that homeowner could also face further taxes on the former home.
A loss mitigation arbitrator can help the homeowner compromise with lenders and find a reasonable solution for both parties.
