Your mortgage loan is a business contract in which you promise to repay the money loaned to you in a timely fashion. However, while being late or missing a payment has consequences, it does not necessarily put you in danger of losing your home. The key to getting through payment difficulties is your willingness to work with Madison Management Services, LLC. to find alternative solutions.
Impact of Past Due or Missed Payments
Every month, Madison Management Services, LLC. has an obligation to pay the owner or investor of your home loan. When you don’t pay your loan, Madison Management Services, LLC still has to pay this obligation on your behalf. We charge fees for past-due or missed payments to make up the cost of paying your obligations for you.
Late or missed payments can have a negative effect on your credit rating, which may make it more difficult for you to get credit cards and loans in the future. You also may have to pay a higher interest rate on loans and credit cards you do get.
Madison Management Services, LLC has an obligation to report past due or missed payments to credit bureaus. Madison Management Services, LLC reports to major credit bureaus every month. When payments are made on time, this monthly reporting has the advantage of building a positive credit history. Timely payment of your mortgage has the greatest impact – positive or negative – on your credit history.

Step one to protecting your home and your credit is to stay in touch. As soon as you know you’re going to be late with your payment, contact Madison Management Services, LLC.
