When Can I Pursue a Deed in Lieu?
The deed in lieu of foreclosure process is one that could potentially be the best option for both sides.
For lenders, it saves a lot of:
- Risk involved with pursuing the foreclosure process and in many cases allows them to reclaim a property without a fight
For borrowers, this process allows them to avoid having a foreclosure on their credit record by using the value of their property to release them from their loan in default.
This process does generally require a few particular circumstances in order to be an option:
- Both sides must enter into a deed in lieu transaction voluntarily, and in good faith
- The debt must be secured by the transfer of the deed
- The property value must be fair enough to cover the remainder of the loan
It is important to know about this option if you find yourself facing a foreclosure because many lenders will not suggest it due to the possibility of then facing a claim that they “forced” the borrower into negotiations.
Instead, the borrower must submit a written request to enter into negotiations voluntarily.
