Here are some of the possible solutions that we may be able to offer you.

Forbearance Plans

A forbearance agreement is a written agreement to reduce or suspend payments due on your loan for a limited and specific time period. During the forbearance period, Madison Management Services will forbear from initiating foreclosure action.

Because a forbearance plan may not fully reinstate the loan, the plan will often be followed by reinstating the loan by one of the following methods based on your ability to pay:

  • a lump sum payment
  • a reinstatement plan
  • a repayment plan
  • loan modification
  • short sale

Repayment Plans

A repayment plan is an executed plan wherein you agree to pay your current monthly payment plus an additional amount, and a down payment to repay the outstanding debt owed in an established amount of time. If you remit all payments, late charges and advances (property inspections, BPO’s, etc.) the completion of the plan results in you bringing your loan current.

Loan Modifications

A modification is a structured agreement where one or more terms of your mortgage are changed to enable you to bring your defaulted loan current.

Short Sales

A short sale occurs when you sell your property and the proceeds from the sale are less than the total amount owed. Madison Management Services may be able to approve your short sale and forgive the remaining debt owed.

Deed in Lieu

A Deed in Lieu occurs when you agree to sign over your property to Madison Management Services in exchange for Madison Management Services not foreclosing on your home.


Madison Management Services works closely with lenders who might be able to help you refinance your loan. In addition, in certain circumstances the current owner of your mortgage may be able to help you with closing costs, accept a separate note for the debt that cannot be included in your refinance or even forgive some of your debt to facilitate the refinance.
