As you might expect, mortgage lenders often do everything they can to avoid changing terms that don't work in their favor. At Payne & Associates, we work tirelessly to ensure that everything that can be done, is being done for our clients.

Details of a Mortgage Modification
The Federal Housing Administration's Home Affordable Modification Program makes provisions for a mortgage modification to be complete within a 24-month period. As part of the agreement, lenders should waive late fees and modify the loan's interest rate to reflect the current market rate. Lastly, the loan will be re-amortized over a period of 360 months.
Mortgage Modification Eligibility
To be eligible, you must:
- Be able to prove a loss of income
- Show at least one source of reliable income
- Have disposable income that exceeds 15% of your monthly pay
- Have too little disposable income to catch up on mortgage payments within six months
