Long Island, Nassau and Suffolk Foreclosure Attorneys
What is a Subprime Loan?
A subprime loan is a particular type of loan which is offered to individuals who do not qualify for prime rate loans. The interest rate is higher on subprime loans because these borrowers’ credit ratings do not allow for a prime rate. Many subprime borrowers are turned away by traditional lenders because of their credit ratings or because of other factors that make them at risk of potentially defaulting on the loan and eventually facing foreclosure.
The high interest rate on subprime loan can translate to tens of thousands of dollars over the term of the mortgage. Some subprime loans have large prepayment penalties or balloon payments which are due at the end of the term. As a result, a subprime borrower may be more likely to face foreclosure. However, a subprime loan may be the only option for a borrower in some situations.
