A loan modification is an adjustment to the original payment terms agreed upon by the lender and the borrower. There are items that can be adjusted to help lower your monthly mortgage payments: (1) interest rate; (2) principal owed; and (3) term of the loan. Usually, the bank is not willing to modify the outstanding principal, but is willing to modify the interest rate and/or the term of the loan. However, in some cases, the bank may negotiate the outstanding principal in order to make the loan modification work. There are several federal programs for loan modifications and each bank also has its own “in house” modification program.
If you want to keep your home, but your home is underwater and you can’t afford to make high mortgage payments, a loan modification may be a good solution. If you are already in foreclosure, a loan modification may be a way out. Banks strive to avoid foreclosure proceedings as much as homeowners do. The foreclosure process is not only lengthy, but creates additional costs that the bank does not want to incur.
