The owner should contact the bank and ask for either a forebearance or a loan restructuring. Keep the bank informed of your situation.
If you’re unable to pay your mortgage and can’t work something out with the lender, consider a short sale–where you sell the property for less than is owed on it. Otherwise, it’s likely to result in a foreclosure.
