Being faced with a foreclosure on your house is one of the most traumatic situations in life. You are troubled about losing your house and your investment, and you dislike the thought of a foreclosure and the effects it will have on your credit ranking and your potential. In certain circumstances, and in certain situations, there is an alternate to a foreclosure, which we called it, a deed in lieu of foreclosure. In order to attain a deed in lieu of foreclosure, financial lender and the house owner both must agree to sign over the title of the deed to the lender. In other words, the financial institution will now own the house in question. In return the original homeowner is alleviated of paying back the debt still owed on the house. The house holder in default have no more liabilities in regards to the said home, and by acquiring this agreement with the lender, the deed in lieu of foreclosure will not influence the homeowners credit rating like a conventional foreclosure would. The agreement to go for the deed in lieu of foreclosure must be prepared at the start of the foreclosure process. The deed in lieu of foreclosure is an out of court agreement.
The bank or lending institution will most frequently opt for a deed in lieu of foreclosure when the debt is so great that the homeowner cannot pay it. It would not be valuable for them to seek a dearth judgment, which is a court order to recover part of the outstanding debt related to the foreclosure. They usually pursue through with the actual foreclosure when the debt isn’t as much as the worth of the property. The advantages of a deed in lieu of foreclosure is an financial one for the lender, by settling out of court the lender will save money on court and notary fees. The lender will also make sure that the deed in lieu of foreclosure will not make them answerable for any mortgage liens upon the property before proceeding with this action. In other words holding the title will be a separate body from any liens (claims for payment from contractors etc.) upon the property. At this point the bank or other lending institution will be capable to sell the property and recuperate there loses. The new owners of the property would be answerable for the liens if there is any pending. The advantage to the homeowner is that the evidence of foreclosure will not be recorded on their credit history.
