Foreclosure & Alternatives Law
What is acceleration?
Many contracts for debts contain “acceleration” clauses. This clause gives a creditor the right to “accelerate” the repayment when a payment is missed. Often, the creditor can require payment in full even when a single payment is missed. The courts may be able to force the debtor to pay a secured debt by seizing the debtor’s property and selling it to pay off the debt.
