How Can I Extend My Loan Term?

If you’re on the verge of losing your home due to unfulfilled payments, you may ask for a loan term extension from the lender. Since this option is less costly for the lender than an interest rate reduction, s/he may be that much more willing to provide. If an extension is granted, you will have to provide payments over a longer period of time, though the payments will be made more affordable. However, if your loan is only a few years old, the reduction of your payment amount may not be significant enough to warrant an extension.

Keep in mind that you can always elect to make larger payments than required by the terms of the extension, but make sure that you notify the lender that the extra amounts should go towards your principal rather than your escrow or interest. This way, you may be able to pay off the mortgage and build equity in your home faster.

For more information, consult with a trusted attorney to determine whether a loan term extension is the right option for you.
