What Are Home Repair Loan Disputes?

Home repair loans, or home improvement loans, are often available for homeowners who need to make repairs, additions, or renovations to their home property.

Thus, it’s important to calculate the full amount of expenses and costs when drawing out a home repair loan. It’s also important to consider calendars and time tables for the projects, so that you don’t run into issues when the loan payments start becoming due each month.

How Are Home Repair Loan Disputes Resolved?

Defaulting on a home repair loan can sometimes lead to legal consequences. Similar to other types of loans, the lending company might be able to reach the borrower’s other property through a lien, in order to obtain compensation for missing payments. This can have other negative consequences on the borrower, such as an impact on their credit scores.

In limited instances, some home repair loan companies may be willing to work with the borrower in terms of an alternative payment plan. They may allow for a re-working of monthly payment rates, or other such alternatives. You might need to negotiate such terms with the company, and this is not always an option in every case.
