A loan modification is the process of modifying your existing loan to make your payments more affordable. A loan modification is a change to a loan contract agreed to by both the lender and the borrower. The goal is to make the loan affordable for the long term.
Examples of hardships that may result in modifications that are approved include illness of the borrower, illness of a borrower’s family member, decrease in income, loss of employment, inability to sell the residence, job relocation, death of a borrower, military duty or numerous other reasons.
Loss mitigation is a process that has to do with new terms agreed to by both the lender and the borrower so that the lender receives their money back and the borrower can make their monthly payments.
A loan modification attorney is useful because sometimes you get different answers from different customer service representatives each time you contact the lender. Also, sometimes customer service representatives are not equipped to be able to assist you. A loan modification attorney can help you get the results you want from your lender.
