Hardship Assistance

Hardships happen, and OwnersChoice wants to help you through the resolution process. The Hardship Assistance Program is designed to help borrowers just like you. We employ a specialized staff of highly trained individuals who can help answer questions, provide updates and guide you as needed.

We are here to help. To contact one of our specialists, please call us at (800) 342-4998, option #2. Our centralized specialists are available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., ET.

Need assistance? The following options may be available:

  • Refinancing
  • Reinstatement
  • A repayment plan that allows your past-due payments together with your regular payments to be paid back over time
  • A forbearance that provides temporary payment relief
  • A loan modification
  • A short sale
  • A deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, which deeds your home back to the lender in exchange for the release of all obligations under the mortgage.

Please call us today to discuss your options.
