Commercial loan workouts are a modification of the existing terms of the commercial loan, for distressed property owners or note holders. They are complicated to modify, and due to new tighter lending guidelines, many properties have trouble qualifying. Commercial loan modifications require an in-depth knowledge of the mortgage financial markets along with an understanding of bank credit underwriting principles, processes and requisites in loan modification proposals.

Types of Commercial Loan Modifications:

- A forbearance allows payments to be temporarily 'forgiven' - in fact, the amount past due is added to the back end of the loan, extending the term period without lowering payments - but the loan is then considered paid current.

Interest Rate Modification - In this scenario, your lender agrees to drop your interest rate - temporarily, or permanently. This often is done where the original mortgage carried a high adjustable mortgage rate.

Term Modification - This means that the total repayment period of the loan is extended. For example, a fifteen year note with five years already paid reverts back to fifteen years or even extends to twenty or more to spread the remaining balance out more and lower payments.

Principal Balance Reduction - Some lenders may agree to reduce the principal amount owed. This is often the solution to upside down or negative equity loans (where the property values have dropped sharply since the original purchase of the home).

Interest Only Payments - If the borrower just needs some breathing room, the bank may allow for an interest only payment period. At the end of this period, the remaining principle is refinanced.
