call the mortgage holder and make payment arrangements
I believe there is no difference. Anyone who has not paid their mortgage payment on time is "late" or delinquent.
Technically you are late if you make your payment anytime after the due date. The vast majority of mortgages are due on the 1st of the month. Most mortgage companies will not assess a late fee unless you are 15 or more days late. At that point the normal late fee will be 5% of your regular mortgage payment. The lender will not report the late payment to a credit bureau until you are 30 days late.
Generally, late payments over 30 days late are reported to a credit reporting agency. After that, late mortgage payments can become "missed" mortgage payments. And missed payments can affect your credit score in a negative way. However, your exact late payment will depend on how your specific mortgage lender reports payments to the credit bureaus.
Although there is typically no consequence to paying a late mortgage payment, there is typically consequences to making mortgage payments late. These consequences typically include a late fee, increased interest rates, and a lowered credit rating.
A mortgage will first reflect as a late payment on your report once it is 30 days late -- at the Lender's discretion. Call the Lender to see that the mortgage was posted in time. Even if it was only a day or so late, and you have a good history with them, they may choose to not report this payment as late. If it was a day late, and you don't ask, they will report it.
The very minute it's late theoretically it could be reported.
