Loan Modification, Sheriff Sale, Mortgage Nightmares

Many homeowners apply for loan modifications during difficult financial times. They call mortgage companies and are told to show a financial hardship (some “consultants” tell homeowners to STOP paying their mortgage). Majority of homeowners then spend countless hours faxing and mailing the same documents in hope their mortgage company receives the package.

In most cases, during “loan modification” review, homeowners are not paying the mortgage. A loan modification review can quickly end in a denial and a foreclosure. Some modification “reviews” can take years.

I spoke with a woman today who claimed her mortgage company told her loan was in underwriting. She ignored letters from her mortgage company because the “person on the phone” told her she was still under review. This morning she received a sheriff sale notice with a sale date of one week.

It took her almost 2 years to call a law firm. She was promised this and promised that and nothing came into fruition. She is scheduled to meet with Geraci Law where we will figure out a plan to save her home. If you are struggling to pay your mortgage, call Geraci Law. A Chapter 7 can eliminate all of your other debt so you can focus on the mortgage. If you are behind, a Chapter 13 is a great way to stop the foreclosure and give you a plan to get current.

If you have a sheriff sale, you have a time stamp. To stop the sale, the case must be filed before the auction. Call us sooner than later so we can keep you in your home!
