What is a Loan Modification?
A loan modification, also referred to as a mortgage modification, is a process that involves modifying your existing home loan to make your payments more affordable.
You may be able to do the following:
- Lower your monthly payments
- Lower your interest rate
- Reduce your loan balance
- Fix an adjustable rate
- Get an extension on payments
- Waive negatively accrued interest
- Re-amortize your loan to include past-due mortgage payments
This can save you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your loan. A loan modification may be compared to a mortgage refinance, except that instead of getting a new mortgage, it modifies your existing mortgage.
A typical loan modification will lower your payment and capitalize arrearage. Under the government's HAMP program, mortgage interest can be reduced to as low as 2%. For clients who do not meet HAMP guidelines, all banks offer in-house modifications for qualified borrowers. Loan modification may be exactly the answer you have been looking for in times of financial distress that would otherwise place your home at risk of foreclosure.
It is important to work with an attorney if you are considering a loan modification. Trying to handle this matter on your own may be difficult. You may be unable to reach someone in the right department or may be unsure of what incentive you can offer the lender to persuade them to agree to a modification.
