Mortgage Forbearance

A mortgage forbearance agreement is an agreement made between a mortgage lender and delinquent borrower in which the lender agrees not to exercise its legal right to foreclose on a mortgage AND the borrower agrees to a repayment plan that will, over a certain time period, bring the borrower current on their payments.
