The temporary suspension of loan repayments due to demonstrated financial hardship on the part of the borrower.

A borrower must apply to the lender to be considered for forbearance.

The act of restraining from exercising a right.

1. Typically encountered in leases and other contracts specifying that a forbearance by one party who fails to declare a default when entitled shall not entitle the other party to rely on future forbearances and will not constitute a waiver of any rights.

2. After a loan default, lenders will sometimes enter into formal forbearance agreements with borrowers, agreeing not to foreclose if the borrowers will agree to a new payment plan, pay all attorneys' fees associated with drafting the agreement, usually agree to a  higher interest rate and more collateral, and almost always agree to waive any and all claims against the lender.
