Loan Modification Principles

Right now, an estimated 300 thousand home owners are able to stop foreclosure through the aid of the loan modification process that is backed up by the Obama bailout bill. Ever since the economy blew up some time ago, the administration has already set up a stimulus program that would help all the people in danger of foreclosure to fight and keep their homes despite all the loss of income and financial hardships that they are facing.

The question that most home owners in danger of foreclosure right now is whether he or she can qualify for this modification of mortgage backed up by the Obama bailout stimulus. What are the specific details that would make one eligible for this program? What factors could hinder one from getting approved in the


application process? What other things can one do in order have a better chance of success? There are a lot of people who can no longer consider refinancing as an option for saving their homes from their financial crisis. Those who want to keep their houses or simply need to lower your mortgage monthlies in order to keep a loose budget can choose a loan workout in order to work out their problems. The Obama administration has set aside $75 billion dollars in order to aid home owners such as you and to stimulate lenders and banks to modify loans successfully. Here are some few principles and tips that can help guide you through your mortgage help application: - If the home owner has an adjustable rate or a subprime, he or she is a good candidate for the program. These are because many of these mortgages can simply re-adjust to a much higher interest. The increase of these interest rates is what causes the ballooning of the monthly bills and thus causing financial troubles - Regarding the financial hardship situation of the owner, this must be of a legitimate cause. A letter explaining the hardship will be required of the home owner and the acceptable reasons are the following: military duty; divorce or any kind of separation; loss of income; disability, injury or medical, death in the


family; unavoidable increased necessary expenses; and relocation of job destination. This hardship letter should precisely and briefly explain the important details of the home owner’s your situation which will help the lender evaluate whether the home owner in question should be approved of loan modification. - Regarding lending laws, home owners must be aware of important laws such as the Truth in Lending Act that has been written in order to protect the concerns of consumers everywhere. In the process of getting one’s mortgage, some disclosures needs to be given by the borrower in a time given time window. If the home owner does not receive these documents, or if the home owner gets documents that are that have some different information from the original papers, then the home owner is likely to have a valid legal case. Those lenders that have been seen to violate some of the consumer protection rights will get strict repercussions.
