Repayment Plan

A repayment plan is a solution that allows you to catch up on your mortgage payments when you are experiencing short-term financial difficulty that is, or will soon be resolved. Examples of situations where this program may be an appropriate solution include:

  • Temporary interruption in income due to illness
  • Loss of employment and awaiting the start of a new job
  • Temporary reduction in income due to a cutback in hours worked

If you have been behind on your payments, this assistance program will allow you to make regularly scheduled payments on your loan, plus repay a portion of the past due payments. In just a few months, your loan will be current and you can return to making your usual monthly mortgage payment.

Here's how a repayment plan can help you:

  • We spread your past due amount (the amount you are behind) over a number of months.
  • During that period, we add a portion of the past due amount to each of your regular mortgage payments.
  • At the end of the repayment plan period your mortgage account will be up to date and you will return to paying the amount provided for in your loan document.

If you think this is the right option for you, please call us today at 1-866-828-8479 1-866-828-8479, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. You can also email us at mortgageassistance@BankUnited.com.

Loan Modification

A loan modification is a change to the terms of your loan intended to:

  • Cure the delinquency status of your loan associated with unpaid payments
  • Provide you with an affordable payment based on your income
  • Provide you long term or permanent payment assistance

If you qualify, a modification may include:

  • A reduction in your interest rate
  • An extension in the term of your mortgage
  • Adding delinquent payments to your principal balance to bring your loan current

A loan modification may be right for you if:

  • You have experienced a permanent reduction in income (possibly due to a change in employment or loss of income by one co-borrower)
  • Your loan payment has increased due to the terms of your loan

If you think this is the right option for you, please call us today at 1-866-828-8479 1-866-828-8479, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. You can also email us at mortgageassistance@BankUnited.com.

Short Sale

A short sale is an assistance program that provides for a permanent resolution of a delinquency and extinguishment of your loan. With a short sale, you have the opportunity to sell your home for less than the amount owed on your loan and the bank will accept the agreed upon proceeds from the sale to pay off your loan.

A short sale may be the right assistance program for you if:

  • You have a hardship, such as a job loss, divorce or a medical emergency
  • You are unable to qualify for a modification
  • You cannot afford your current monthly mortgage payment
  • You owe more than your house is worth
  • You are facing foreclosure and want to reduce the negative impact to your credit

Possible consequences of a short sale:

  • If the property securing the loan is your primary home, you will be required to move out
  • Depending on the location of your property, you may still be liable for the difference between the amount owed on your loan and the net proceeds accepted by the bank to pay off your loan
  • There may be income tax consequences to you. You should consult a tax advisor regarding how a short sale would affect you

Please note, based on your circumstance, you may be eligible for financial assistance to help you move into a new home.

If you think this is the right option for you, please call us today at 1-866-828-8479 1-866-828-8479, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. You can also email us at mortgageassistance@BankUnited.com.

Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure

A deed-in-lieu of foreclosure ("DIL") is an assistance program that provides for a permanent resolution of a delinquency and extinguishment of your loan. With a DIL, you avoid foreclosure by voluntarily surrendering ownership of your property to the bank as satisfaction of your debt. A deed-in-lieu is useful if your property has been on the market as a pre-foreclosure sale for three or more months and there are legal obstructions to foreclosure action. A deed-in-lieu allows us to take possession of your property sooner than would be possible through foreclosure.

A deed-in-lieu may be the right assistance program for you if:

  • You have a hardship, such as a job loss, divorce or a medical emergency
  • You are unable to qualify for a modification
  • You cannot afford your current monthly mortgage payment
  • You have tried to sell your property without success for at least 90 days
  • You can't sell your home for less than your remaining mortgage balance (also known as a "short sale")
  • You are facing foreclosure and want to reduce the negative impact to your credit

Possible consequences of a deed-in-lieu:

  • If the property securing the loan is your primary home, you will be required to move out
  • Depending on the location of your property, you may still be liable for the difference between the amount owed on your loan and the net proceeds accepted by the bank to pay off your loan
  • There may be income tax consequences to you. You should consult a tax advisor regarding how a deed-in-lieu would affect you

Please note, based on your circumstance, you may be eligible for financial assistance to help you move into a new home.

If you think this is the right option for you, please call us today at 1-866-828-8479 1-866-828-8479, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. You can also email us at mortgageassistance@BankUnited.com

Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA)

BankUnited is committed to supporting our customers serving in the United States Armed Forces by making sure they are aware of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act ("SCRA") and certain benefits and protections the SCRA offers.

What is the SCRA?

The SCRA is a federal law that provides servicemembers called to “active duty” or “active service,” or a spouse or dependent of such a servicemember, with certain legal protections and debt relief. The benefits and protections available under the SCRA apply to both consumer and business loans.

Who may be entitled to benefits/legal protections under the SCRA?

  • Regular members of the U.S. Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard)
  • Reserve and National Guard personnel who have been activated and are on Federal active duty
  • National Guard personnel under a call or order to active duty for more than thirty (30) consecutive days under section 502(f) of title 32, United States Code, for purposes of responding to a national emergency declared by the President and supported by Federal funds
  • Active servicemembers of the commissioned corps of the Public Health Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
  • Certain United States citizens serving with the armed forces of a nation with which the United States is allied in the prosecution of a war or military action

What legal protections are Servicemembers entitled to under the SCRA?

The SCRA states that a debt incurred by a servicemember, or service member and spouse jointly, prior to entering military service shall not bear interest at a rate above 6% during the period of military service and one year thereafter, in the case of an obligation or liability consisting of a mortgage, trust deed, or other security in the nature of a mortgage, or during the period of military service in the case of any other obligation or liability.

The SCRA states that in a legal action to enforce a debt against real estate that is filed during, or within one year after the servicemember's military service, a court may stop the proceedings for a period of time, or adjust the debt. In addition, the sale, foreclosure, or seizure of real estate shall not be valid if it occurs during or within one year after the servicemember's military service, unless the creditor has obtained a valid court order approving the sale, foreclosure, or seizure of the real estate.

The SCRA contains many other protections besides those applicable to home loans.

How does a Servicemember or dependent request relief under the SCRA?

In order to request relief under the SCRA from loans with interest rates above 6% a servicemember or spouse must provide a written request to BankUnited, together with a copy of the servicemember's military orders. All SCRA written requests should be sent to BankUnited at the following address:
BankUnited, N.A.
Attn: Special Loans
P.O. Box 028569
Miami, Florida 33102

There is no requirement under the SCRA, however, for a servicemember to provide a written notice or a copy of a servicemember's military orders to the lender in connection with a foreclosure or other debt enforcement action against real estate. Under these circumstances, BankUnited will inquire about the military status of a person by searching the Department of Defense's Defense Manpower Data Center's website, contacting the servicemember, and examining their files for indicia of military service. Although there is no requirement for servicemembers to alert BankUnited of their military status in these situations, it still is a good idea for the servicemember to do so.

How does a Servicemember or a spouse or dependent of the Servicemember obtain information about the SCRA?

"Military OneSource" is the U.S. Department of Defense's information resource. If you are listed as entitled to legal protections under the SCRA (see above), please go to http://www.militaryonesource.mil/legal or call 1-800-342-9647 1-800-342-9647 (toll free from within the United States) to find out more information. Dialing instructions for areas outside the United States are provided on the website.

Additionally, servicemembers and dependents with questions about the SCRA should contact their unit’s Judge Advocate, or their installation’s Legal Assistance Officer. A military legal assistance office locator for all branches of the Armed Forces is available at: http://legalassistance.law.af.mil/content/locator.php
