What is a Deed-In-Lieu of Foreclosure?
A deed-in-lieu of foreclosure is an alternative to foreclosure whereby you voluntarily transfer ownership of a property over to the lender. This is usually an option when a property could not be sold through a short sale after 120 days. A deed-in-lieu may help you rebuild your credit sooner than a foreclosure.

What to Expect with a Deed-in-Lieu
A deed-in-lieu is an alternative which may:
  • Prevent further damage to your credit scores.
  • Eliminate the cost and stress of a foreclosure.
  • Allow you to be eligible to apply for a Fannie Mae mortgage up to five years sooner than if a foreclosure is completed.

The process typically takes 30-40 days to complete, however the exact timeframe will depend on your specific situation.

As foreclosure avoidance professionals, Bayview can complete a deed-in-lieu transaction quickly. The sooner you contact us, the faster we can work together to get your account back on track.

Important Documentation
In most cases, a Hardship Application may be the first step for Bayview to review your current financial situation when requesting help with your mortgage. Your Bayview representative will advise you if you need to complete this application.

Once you have completed the application, please use one of the five simple ways to return documents to Bayview.

Mortgage Scam Alert: Beware of home loan rescue scams. Facing the possibility of not being able to make your mortgage payments is an unsettling time. Unfortunately, con artists often attempt to take advantage of vulnerable homeowners and may try deceptive scams where they pretend to represent Bayview Loan Servicing, LLC ("Bayview") and allege to have your best interest in mind. You should know that loss mitigation options and counseling do not require fees when working directly with Bayview or a HUD approved housing counselor. For your protection, if you are unsure if the person communicating with you about a modification or other deferment agreement or requiring you to make payments is from Bayview or a legitimate counseling resource, please contact the Customer Relations Department at 1.800.457.5105 or at customerservice@bayviewloanservicing and tell us about your situation.
