You may be able to initiate it by discussing the situation with the lender and getting it to agree to allow you to give a deed in lieu of a foreclosure. It will be up to the bank and each lender has its own requirements.

How many payments have to be missed before foreclosure by the mortgage company?

Technically you are eligible for foreclosure the day you miss a payment, but in practice this is never the case. Most lenders will begin the foreclosure process after 3 payments are missed, but that does not mean the home will be foreclosed. Many lenders are required by law to work with the borrower to modify the loan, or otherwise demonstrate significant effort to avoid the foreclosure. Many foreclosures take 6 months to a year to complete. This varies greatly by state, loan type, and investor/owner of the loan.

The best way to prevent a foreclosure on your home is to stay ahead on payments for your mortgage.

Most banks have a 6 month grace period if you contact them about your inability to pay before beginning court procedures.

Yes. Foreclosure proceedings do not begin in most states until you are a number of months behind in payments. That will negatively impact your credit report.

Condominium foreclosure by hoa in Florida?

It's unclear from your question who owns the property, who is foreclosing on the unit and the reason for the foreclosure. If you own the property, and you owe money -- either to a lender, to a tax authority or to the association for over-due assessments -- foreclosure should not be a surprise. Foreclosure is usually accomplished either by a lender, a tax authority including the IRS, a co-owner, or the association. Before action for foreclosure begins, the owner has been notified, warned, advised and otherwise informed of options in lieu of foreclosure, but that foreclosure is a possibility. If not before now, the foreclosure action has your attention. You can attempt to work out a different result with whomever has taken the foreclosure action, which may prevent you losing your residence.

What are the foreclosure laws in New Jersey?

At least 30 days before starting the foreclosure process, the lender mails a letter to the borrower warning of the impending foreclosure. During this pre-foreclosure period, the borrower can prevent the foreclosure by paying off the amount in default. The lender initiates the foreclosure through the courts and records a lis pendens (notice of pending lawsuit) with the county clerk. The lender can sue for either the default payments or the entire unpaid principal balance on the loan. The borrower is notified of the foreclosure action in person or by publication if necessary. After being notified, the borrower has at least 35 days to respond or the court will make a ruling. If the court rules against the borrower, a sale date will be scheduled. There are actually companies that will work with you for free to buy your mortgage away from your mortgage company and avoid your foreclosure. I would advise looking into this first.
