The act of choosing not to exercise a right, or not declaring a default when entitled to. The term is commonly seen in contracts, specifying that a forbearance by one party who chooses not to declare a default does not entitle the other party to rely on the future forbearances or a waiving of any rights of the first party.

Lenders will sometimes enter into formal forbearance agreements with borrowers. For example, a lender might agree to a forbearance stating they will not foreclose if the borrower agrees to a new payment plan, additional charges, etc.
