Loan modification basics
A simple loan modification may be all you need to enable you to satisfy your monthly payments, whether on your home mortgage, car loan or other financial obligations. Generally, a loan modification takes the overdue money and puts it on at the end of the loan while negotiating a better interest rate. The Massachusetts Attorney General strongly has encouraged banks to offer reasonable loan modifications. After thoroughly discussing your loan modification preferences, our bankruptcy lawyers walk you through the process from beginning to end.
A bank’s reasons for modifying your loan
Your loan modification attorneys present your financial file to the lending institution and negotiate a compromise agreement satisfactory to both you and your bank. There are numerous reasons a bank prefers to modify your loan rather than to foreclose on your property or collect your asset:
- Banks profit from collecting interest on your loan, not from owning your property
- A foreclosed home generally sells for below market value
- A foreclosed home may even sell for less than the principal remaining on your mortgage
- Maintaining your property may be costly
- No money is lost with a loan modification
- Banks may even make more money over a longer period
A loan modification generally involves lowering monthly interest payments and extending the duration of the mortgage or loan.
Loan modification without an attorney
Anyone may attempt a loan modification. However, individuals often encounter challenges that require competent legal assistance to overcome. Your bank may not speak with you regarding a revision of your loan terms or your lending institution may make it nearly impossible for you to obtain an appointment with the right person in the right department. If you manage to get a loan modification meeting, your bank may offer unreasonable terms, insisting you only have one option. Finally, once you sign a loan modification, you are bound by its terms, reasonable or not. For all these reasons, it is crucial to have qualified legal counsel throughout the loan modification process. We know the system and how to play the game.
