When the loan may be in default
The loan will be in default if:
- You or the co-borrower have filed bankruptcy.
- The borrower donates or abandons the home
- You haven't paid property taxes
- You haven't maintained your home or paid for repairs
- Your home is no longer insured
Moreover, if the loan has an acceleration clause , the lender may require you to pay down the mortgage if:
- A co-owner has been added to the property title
- You have rented out the property to a non-relative
- You have taken a new loan on your home
- You have changed the property's zoning classification
Make sure you check the loan documents so you know what situations will cause your loan to default and your repayments to accelerate.
