Getting A Loan Modification Can Be Easy If You Know What You Are Doing
Homeowners who are having a tough time keeping up with their mortgage payments oftenpanic that they will soon get a notice of foreclosure from their mortgage lender. While this panic is understandable as no ones wants to lose their home, it is important families remember that if they simply do a little research and make sure they have support, then getting their mortgage modified can be fairly simple.
Of course when we say you need the right support, we do not mean hiring a loan modification company or an attorney. The high upfront fees charged by these companies make loan modification a very expensive affair and extremely risky. Instead, what you need to do is learn how to handle the process yourself. Try to search on the internet for the best loan modification guide which not just teaches you how to modify your loan but also comes with a number of value added services.
Simply purchasing a guide is often not enough. There will be certain chapters within the guide where you will require further explanation. You will also come across situations where you will need assistance. Hence one of the value added services which you need to look for while trying to figure out which guide is right for you, is phone support. In fact, not just phone support but it should be free and unlimited. This means even if you need some help months down the line, you can still call someone to assist you.
Once you get this, the rest of the process should be straight forward. The guide will teach you exactly how to get your loan modified, industry information which you need to know as well as what mortgage lenders look for when they go through the thousands of applications they receive.
Once you learn all this, you need to start arranging the documents which you need to submit along with your loan modification application. Documents include the financial worksheet and hardship letter which should come as a template with the letter pre-written for you so you just need to input your hardship into the letter. This is the second value added service you should look for while purchasing any guide. It will make your life a lot easier if all documents you need are included with the purchase. If you try arranging the documents on your own, you need to be extremely careful you have everything that is required in the prescribed format. Any missing data could result in your application being rejected.
So at this stage you know how to modify your loan, you know how to talk to your mortgage lender and now have all the documents you need. Next step would be to get the documents checked for any mistakes. Ideally the loan modification guide you bought should be backed by a team of consultants who will be able to review your documents at no extra cost. Once this is done, you are ready to file your application. Make sure you do not waste additional time and be sure to get started on your loan modification immediately. Follow up with the bank every 30 days about the status of your application and make sure they have everything they need to successfully modify your loan.
