A loan modification is the best option if a homeowner wants to keep their home. Unlike a refinance, a loan modification is a permanent change of the terms of your original loan. A lender will often agree to reduce the interest rate, extend the term, and/or defer or reduce the principle, which will result in lower, affordable monthly payment for the homeowner. When finalized, a loan modification will also result in a foreclosure lawsuit being dismissed. Loan modifications are complex and require careful negotiation.
This is why hiring an experienced and knowledgeable Florida loan modification attorney is necessary. Attorney Stephen K. Hachey has been helping clients stop foreclosure by negotiating loan modifications on their behalf for over six years. If you’re facing foreclosure, call 813-549-0096
today and see if a loan modification is right for you.
Why Would a Lender Agree to a Loan Modification?
Lenders do not want to own your home. They just want the loan to be paid back on time with interest. As a result, loan modifications are often a preferred alternative to a foreclosure because they reduce additional costs to both the lender and borrower, compared to the expense of completing a typical foreclosure. In addition it allows the homeowner to stay in the home.
How Do You Know if a Loan Modification is Your Best Option?
Your lender will make a calculated decision based on your hardship letter, current financial situation and employment status to determine if they should approve you for a loan modification. It is highly recommended to consult with an experienced Florida loan modification lawyer like Stephen K. Hachey to determine your options and offer you the best available solution.
Do You Have to be Behind on Mortgage Payments to Qualify for a Loan Modification?
No, this is a common myth and is false. Many mortgage lenders are receiving incentives to accept loan modifications while the homeowners are still current.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney Instead of Attempting to Do it Myself?
Of course you can do it yourself, but ask yourself honestly how important is it to you to keep your home. Many people have tried to complete a successful loan modification themselves with no help or advice, but remember the lender has their best interest in mind and not yours. People always hire experts to handle anything as important as the home they live in. So a better question might be, can you afford to NOT hire a Florida loan modification attorney?
