Affects Of Mortgage Lates On Your Credit Score

Mortgage and Lending with Samuel Scott Financial Group San Diego NMLS#284800

As a mortgage professional, I am frequently asked about the effects of mortgage lates and foreclosure on credit scores. has a pretty good article regarding this.

Per Fair Isaac, your credit score will take an average hit of 40-110 points for a 30-day mortgage late payment, 70-135 point hit for a 90-day mortgage late, 85-160 point hit for a foreclosure, short sale, or died-in-lieu, and a 130-240 point hit for a bankruptcy.

Pretty scary stuff, especially if you have other derogatory accounts, but good to know.

Lending laws change so often, it is difficult to keep up.     I leave all those questions up to my loan officer!

Consumers who have good credit ratings will generally be offered the best interest rates. They will also have more buying power when it comes to finding the best card that suits their needs.
