To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to explain the reasons why I have {or will soon become} delinquent on my mortgage payments, and to request that we work together to avoid foreclosure on my home.

My income has become drastically reduced recently, due to {sickness, death in the family, job loss, etc. BE SPECIFIC}. The money I have remaining every month must go to {food, car payment, medication, etc.}. I have done everything in my power to keep up with the payments, but it unfortunately has become impossible {or will become impossible as of a certain date}.

I believe I can resolve my debt by {explanation of how you intend to pay them back OR a request that they provide a "workout" solution for your loan}.

Please understand that I know I signed a contract and that I am responsible for these payments. I am not attempting to shirk my responsibilities, but there is also only so much I can do when I still need to keep food on my table.

It is my intention to stay in my home, so I hope we can work out a solution as quickly as possible.

Thank you,

{Sender Name}
