Foreclosure Alternatives 

Options That May Be Available And Steps To Take.

Please let us know if you are experiencing temporary or permanent financial difficulties. Banner Bank is more than willing to work with you to find a mutually agreeable way to help you keep up with your mortgage payments and preserve your home. Below is a brief summary of some of the tools we have available to assist you and your first steps in pursuing these options.

  • Reinstate - Keep in mind that retirement plans will often allow a withdrawal in order to avoid foreclosure on your primary residence. To request a hardship letter and the total amount due, call 1-800-272-9933 and ask for the Loan Counseling Department.
  • Refinance – Your loan must be current to qualify. To begin the application process, contact your nearest Banner Bank loan officer or call 1-800-272-9933 and ask for the Home Loan Central Department.
  • Repayment Plan – You may qualify if you have experienced an involuntary reduction in pay or an increase in living expenses. A complete financial packet may be required depending on the degree of delinquency and repayment term. To request a repayment plan, call 1-800-272-9933 and ask for the Loan Counseling Department.
  • Temporary Forbearance - You may qualify if you have experienced an involuntary reduction in pay or an increase in living expenses. You must show that you would be able to bring the loan current at the end of the plan. A complete financial packet may be required depending on the degree of delinquency and repayment term. To request a a temporary forbearance, call 1-800-272-9933 and ask for the Loan Counseling Department.
  • Pre-foreclosure Sale - This option will allow you to sell your property and pay off your mortgage loan to avoid foreclosure and damage to your credit rating even though your property may not be in an equity position. To request a pre-foreclosure sale, call 1-800-272-9933 and ask for the Loan Counseling Department.
  • Loan Modification – You may qualify if you have experienced an involuntary reduction in pay or an increase in living expenses. You may be able to refinance the debt and/or extend the term of your mortgage loan during a specified time frame. This would help you catch up by possibly reducing your payments to a more affordable level for a period of time. A complete financial packet will apply. To request a loan modification, call 1-800-272-9933 and ask for the Loan Counseling Department.
  • Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure – As a last resort you may be able to voluntarily ‘give back’ your property. This won’t save your house. You can qualify if: 1) you are in default and don’t qualify for any of the other options; 2) your attempts at selling the house were unsuccessful; 3) there are no other liens against the property. To discuss providing a deed in lieu of foreclosure, call 1-800-272-9933 and ask for the Loan Counseling Department.
