The Mandatory Forbearance Request Student Loan Debt Burden, also known as Form 1845-0018, is a document that allows a borrower to adjust to a smaller periodic payment or stop making payments if the amount is equal to or more than 20% of their monthly income. This document must be returned to the loan servicer for processing.
It is the lender’s responsibility to determine the credit worthiness of the borrower. The borrower’s trustworthiness can be evaluated through credit reports and references. The borrower might also consider things like the length of time the borrower has lived somewhere or the amount of time at a job. The lender should read over the loan agreement draft to see if all the provisions and writings are accurate. The lender’s signature will convey that the document is read, understood, and accurate.
Co-signer responsibilities: If the borrower is allowing a co-signer to also sign for the loan, the details of the co-signer’s responsibilities must be in the document. The co-signer is an option for borrowers who have little to no credit or who are young and just starting to build credit.
Secured Loans – If the borrower is considered a high-risk then the lender may want to request an asset that will be in the lender’s possession if the debt is not paid. This type of loan is most commonly used in pawn shops.
