Foreclosure Prevention

There is help available if you are having difficulty making your mortgage loan payments. You may be eligible for the Home Affordable Modification program, part of the initiative announced by President Obama to help homeowners.

As your mortgage loan servicer, we will work with you in an effort to make your mortgage payment affordable. You will not pay any fees to take advantage of this opportunity to modify your mortgage loan payment and keep your home. Now is the time to act. We are ready to help you.

Here's how it works: We will first determine if you are eligible based on your situation. If you are eligible, we will look at your monthly income and housing costs, including any past due payments, and then determine an affordable mortgage payment.

At first, you will make new, affordable monthly payments on your mortgage loan during a trial period. If you make those payments successfully and fulfill all trial period conditions, we will permanently modify your mortgage loan.

The modification may involve some or all of the following changes to your mortgage loan:

  1. Bringing your account current
  2. Reducing the interest rate on your loan
  3. Extending the term of the loan, and/or
  4. Delaying your repayment of a portion of the mortgage principal until the end of the loan term

To take advantage of this opportunity and the Home Affordable Modification program, contact us as soon as possible. To help speed the process it will be helpful if you have the following information when you call:

  • Loan number
  • Monthly pre-tax income of each borrower
  • Information about any financial hardship you are suffering

If you do not qualify for a loan modification under this program, or do not want to stay in your home, we will work with you to explore other options available to help you keep your home or ease your transition to a new home.

We want to make modifying your mortgage loan as easy as possible. However, you must take the first step by contacting us at (800) 584-8859 x4213
