The current situations in the credit and real estate markets are very scary. The sector that seems to be getting hit the hardest is the banking and financial sectors of the American economy.

Huge corporate banks like Washington Mutual and Indy Mac as well as large Wall Street Firm have already failed and disappeared. Many financial experts agree that this could be the beginning of something much worse and more difficult times could be ahead.

Because of the current financial state of affairs many home owners are very concerned about their own homes and what could happen to them if their mortgage lender or bank fails.

There have been false rumors spread that have people thinking that if their bank fails they may lose their home or even have to pay off their mortgage in full or refinance to another lender!

If you are a home owner that has been worried about this lately the first thing you need to do is relax and take a deep breath. Nothing is going to happen to you the consumer if your lender fails financially.

The reason you are in a safe spot aside from federal laws is that your mortgage was more then likely sold off on the secondary market moments after you closed on it.

Your loan was then packaged with others and resold on Wall Street to large corporate and foreign investors who hold them as assets. So in most cases the bank who you send your payment to is only acting as the middle man and administrating your loan.

Even if you are with a small local bank or credit union that actually services their own mortgages you are still protected. In the event that a small local bank would fail the Federal Government would step in a re sell the banks assets to another investor or bank.

About the only thing that actually may change if your bank fails is the place where you send your house payment every month. And the current lender or new lender will send you a notice on where that payment should be sent.

One important thing to keep in mind is that if you were in foreclosure or had a bad payment record those things will follow you to the new lender. You will not get a free reset of your loan history when the loan transfers to another bank.

So relax and realize that as an individual home owner the markets and laws are set up to protect you and your home in the event of any bank or financial sector failures.
