How Does A Loan Modification Work?
Foreclosures can be costly and time-consuming for lenders. As a result, some lenders are open to negotiating the terms of a loan with the homeowner. This can allow the homeowner to stay in his or her home and begin making regular, timely payments on the mortgage.
The process for securing a modification is similar to when you applied for and signed your original mortgage. Both you and the bank will need to reach an agreement regarding the new terms of your loan. Additionally, the lender will require financial documentation to determine what you can afford and whether you qualify for a modification.
We can help you through this process and act as your advocates in negotiations with your lender. If modification is not possible, we can also help you weigh your options to stop or slow down the foreclosure.
