A modification may include adding the delinquent balance to your current balance, lowering your interest rate to as low as 2%, decreasing your monthly payment, and/or reducing your balan.
A repayment plan is an agreement to spread the past due amount over a specific period – usually 6 to 12 months.

A forbearance plan is an agreement to reduce or suspend mortgage payments for a specified period, while suspending foreclosure procedures during the forbearance period. In exchange, the borrower must pay the full past-due payments at the end of the forbearance period. The past-due amounts include the additional payments to become current on missed payments, including principal, interest, taxes and insurance. (The specific terms of a forbearance agreement will vary from lender to lender.)

Rescinding is a legal process whereby the lender may return the property after a wrongful foreclosure.
