Suspension of monthly payments
The suspension of the monthly payments of a credit consists of a postponement of deadlines. Their number is however limited so as not to postpone the initial duration of the credit by more than two years.
To do this, the borrower can request his bank, in writing, having first been aware of the conditions of postponement as provided in his loan offer. He can also do the request for a deadline of thanks to the district court; if it succeeds, it then benefits from a suspension of repayments for a maximum of 24 months, without this entailing the payment of additional interest.

This is indeed an option where Monthly payments are flexible, both upwards and downwards. Again, however, the decrease in the amount of maturities should not extend the loan by more than two years.

The surety is thus the relay of the payment of the installments in case of default of the debtor. For the Crédit Logement guarantee, the guarantor will also accompany the borrower to find the best way out of his difficulties.
The loan buyback and the Sécuri-Pass

In this situation, the borrower can renegotiate with another organization a credit with lower monthly payments, but at the longer duration, which will be felt on the larger total cost.
