Carrington is committed to the dream of homeownership, and we realize that sometimes unforeseen situations can cause financial hardships.
These hardships can impact the ability of some homeowners to make monthly mortgage payments.
If you need assistance to get back on track, we have a variety of options that may be available to you.
Available options and terms vary by the investor and/or insurer of your loan, but as a general guideline the options typically include:
There are options to suspend monthly payments for a specific period of time when your home or place of employment have been impacted by a natural disaster. This would include federally- declared disaster areas. Visit our Disaster Assistance page for more information.
This involves making payment arrangements over a specific period of time, typically three to six months, that are designed to reinstate a delinquent loan to a current status.
A payment arrangement of reduced or zero monthly payments for a specified period of time. Forbearance plans are temporary, and are designed to lead to such permanent solutions as a Repayment Plan or Loan Modification.
This permanent change to the terms of the original mortgage may include one or more of the following: an interest rate change (either fixed or temporary), capitalization of payments and/or fees and costs, term extension, or a deferral of a portion of the loan. Loan modifications are available for both 1st and 2nd mortgages.
This option allows a borrower to avoid foreclosure by selling the property for less than the total amount owed on the account (subject to agreement by Carrington), resulting in the release of the Carrington’s lien on the home.
Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure
An option that allows a borrower to voluntarily deed a property to the lender to avoid foreclosure. In return, the borrower agrees to vacate the property on an agreed-upon date, leaving it in "broom swept" condition.
Gather What You’ll Need
To be considered for any of the loss mitigation options, we need recent documentation regarding your current financial circumstances, including your plans for the property, what led you to needing assistance, and how you can demonstrate your ability to either maintain payments in the future or show you cannot continue to make mortgage payments.
Our goal is to assist you with the information you need to successfully complete your application for assistance. For your convenience we are providing a sample profit and loss statement for you to use as a guide if you have self-employment income.
Below are the documents we require to conduct a review. Please download or print copies of the below items, and spend a few minutes reviewing our Loss Mitigation Guide section to avoid common issues when applying for assistance:
