What is a delinquent mortgage?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Delinquent Mortgage."

When you have a "delinquent mortgage," that's a fancy way of saying you're seriously late. It's a home loan for which the borrower has failed to make the payments on time, under the terms of the loan agreement.

When a borrower has fallen way behind on house payments, the loan is considered a delinquent mortgage. The lender may offer the homeowner some options to prevent foreclosure.

To shop for the perfect home loan, visit the Mortgage section at Bankrate.com.
