They can't work with you if you don't return their calls. It will hurt your credit and they could choose to not accept your late payments if they want, so they could foreclose. If you call and tell them your situation and your catch-up plan they will be far more likely to accept your late payments.

If someone owed you money and they had a plan to make the debt current but it will take them a while to do that, wouldn't you want them to tell you about it? Also is this something that you will be doing often? Your post seemed to read that you will be paying every 70 to 80 days. Does that mean that you will be paying 2 and a half or 3 months rent at a time? Lets say that you paid 90 days late. Are you going to be paying them 3 monthly payments at that time? Or are you saying that you will be paying for a single month in that time frame, meaning that for now you will always be 70 or 80 days late?

I have seen Notice of Defaults (foreclosure notices) be filed as quickly as 45 days after a payment is not made. If that happens, I would assume that the penalties would be quite high. I don't know in California how long you have between a Foreclosure notice being filed, and the foreclosure sale actually happening. In Idaho, it is 120 days, so you could bring it back current in that time, but it would be very cost prohibative to do this repeatedly.

I would advocate finding some way to avoid this, but if you have no other choice, I would definitely advocate calling them.

Since you are able to catch up, or come close to it in a relatively short period of time, you absolutely have to call. They are going to go through whatever procedures they use when someone is late anyway, but it should help you if you have a notation on your mortgage that you are going to submit payment on a particular date(obv moreso once you follow through).

What kind of loan do you have?

If it's an FHA mortgage or a VA mortgage, there specific guidelines to assist with hardship cases. The servicing lender must follow those guidelines in order to participate in either program.

If you have a conventional loan, you still could receive help. As others have said, call. They will take your information and let you know your options.

Call your lender, be honest and stay in communication with them. Ask them who you need to talk with to get a mortgage forebearance agreement. It might be the loss mitigation department but it might be another department. Compared to most of the calls they get (and a lot of the calls they never receive) yours is a 'good' one.

They will work something out for you. I was behind exactly one payment for about a year! The previous month would be over, and I would send the previous month's payment when I got my first paycheck. So, I was always about 30 something days late.It wasn't until I paid much later in the month that they decided not to accept my payment. This was not something I was proud of; my finances just changes and at the same time my escrow increased.
