Good morning. A party who is in foreclosure can ask the lender for the reinstatement amount, to bring the loan current. They will include all fees and other costs as well and if it is paid, then the second loan should be reinstated and the foreclosure action dismissed. When an unmatured installment note goes into default, virtually all promissory notes or loan agreements allow the lender to “accelerate” the note, at which point the installment feature of the note goes away and the entire loan becomes immediately due and payable. Minnesota’s “reinstatement” statute, which is designed to protect borrowers, permits borrowers to stop the foreclosure of the mortgage by “curing” defaults any time before the Sheriff’s sale
