Loan Modifications

financial relief

Loan modifications offer a solution to keep your home — that is, if you can get the bank to agree to them. Unfortunately, banks often deny loan modifications because they look at an unrealistic picture of your financial situation. DON'T GIVE UP!

There is a loan modification program that is available in Bankruptcy that may help you keep your home even if you have been previously denied for a loan modification (depending on the reason you were denied).

When you send a loan modification to the bank outside of bankruptcy, the bank uses the debt that is on your credit report to compute your monthly debt. "But, I'm not paying on those credit cards" is what you may say. That may be true but you are still obligated on them and they will be factored into the equation. But what if, we could get rid of the debt? For some people, that will mean the difference between being approved for a loan modification or not.

The loan modification program affords additional checks and balances in the form of a mediation and the appointment of a mediator. The mediator is a neutral third-party attorney who monitors the process and serves as a facilitator of communication. The mediation conference is a meeting in which our bankruptcy lawyers work with the mediator and the bank to ensure that the correct numbers are reviewed and an accurate picture of your household situation is taken properly considered so that you get the best shot at a loan modification.

How Do I Get A Loan Modification?

To pursue a home loan modification, you must file an application with the company that services your mortgage. Generally, you will have to show:

  • Documented financial hardship
  • A major change in financial circumstances, such as job loss or divorce
  • You missed three or more mortgage payments
  • You own and live in the property
  • You made every effort to make your mortgage payments

Bankruptcy is not always necessary to obtain a loan modification. In some cases, however, you may have to pursue a modification in conjunction with bankruptcy in order to stay in your home.
