Potential Default

A situation that may cause a default on a loan. Alternatively, potential default may refer to a person, especially a loan applicant, who is in such a situation. An obvious example of potential default is a situation in which a borrower loses his/her job. Lenders attempt to identify potential defaults before they make a loan.
