Available Options

Program Description Advantages
Repayment Plan An agreement in which regular payments are made in addition to a portion of past due amounts. Designed to bring your loan current over a pre-determined period of time.
  • Allows you to bring your account current over a period of time, avoid foreclosure and prevent damage to your credit rating.
Forbearance Plan Suspends or reduces your monthly payments for a short period of time. During the forbearance period we will review your current financial situation and attempt to identify payment options that will assist you in bringing your loan current and allow you to retain ownership of your home.
  • Allows a temporary suspension and/or reduction in payments.
  • Provides an opportunity to evaluate various repayment options.
Loan Modification A program in which the original loan structure is modified. Modification may include reducing the interest rate, deferring principal and/or extending the term of the loan.
  • Provides for a more affordable payment structure.
Pre-foreclosure Sale Also known as a "short sale" allows you to sell your property for less than the total loan amount to avoid foreclosure and minimize the damage to your credit rating. Under this scenario the bank agrees to accept the lesser payment and the seller receives no money from the sale of the home.
  • Avoids foreclosure action and the associated legal process.
  • Reflects more positively on your credit rating than a foreclosure.
Deed in lieu of foreclosure Under certain circumstances, this option allows you to voluntarily deed your property to Rabobank and avoid foreclosure.
  • Avoids foreclosure action and the associated legal process.
  • Reflects more positive on your credit rating than a foreclosure.
