MIAMI DADE LOAN MODIFICATION AND FORECLOSURE ATTORNEYS

While the  Making Homes Affordable Program may have expired (the last date for submission was December 30, 2016 and has not been extended by the Trump or Obama Administration) programs still exists if your loan is owned by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Veteran Affairs or the USDA.  Programs include interest rate reductions and often principal forgiveness.

These lenders continue to be understandable and are allowing homeowners to remodify their mortgage and loans under these programs that continue to exist into 2017. Many borrowers under the HAMP program had adjustable rates which increase after the 5th year.  That would put anyone that modified their loan in 2009 or 2010 into a higher interest rate.  A mortgage default however doesn’t mean you have to lose your home. A Miami Dade Loan Modification attorney at our firm can help.  However, with a deadline of December 30, 2016 to submit, the Making Homes Affordable Program may no longer be available but others are.

There are strict eligibility requirements under these programs,  and it may be necessary to make sure you qualify before submitting a modification request, we are here to help.  At the Law Offices of Jacqueline A. Salcines, PA, we are Miami Dade Loan Modification attorneys and keenly aware of the requirements and are able to sit with the borrowers, review their financials data, and provide solutions for their homeownership mortgage problems.  Allow my team of attorneys and accountants to go to work for you so you do not fall victim and lose your home.

MIAMI DADE LOAN MODIFICATION AND FORECLOSURE ATTORNEYS

Now that the deadline to submit a Home Loan Modification request under the Making Homes Affordable Program has expired (the last date for submission was December 30, 2016 and has not been extended by the Trump or Obama Administration) what will happen with all the borrowers who are again struggling to pay their mortgages?  While the program has not been keyed for renewal, like the HARP program that was extended, borrowers face a myriad of questions and concerns as to what will happen with their underwater properties.  Loan Modifications continue to prevail with other plans that are available.  Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA Federal Housing Authority and even the USDA have programs that continue to exist to help underwater home loan borrowers with their default and delinquent mortgages.

Lenders continue to be understandable and are allowing homeowners to remodify their mortgage and loans under these programs that continue to exist into 2017.

Many borrowers under the HAMP program had adjustable rates which increase after the 5th year.  That would put anyone that modified their loan in 2009 or 2010 into a higher interest rate.  A mortgage default however doesn’t mean you have to lose your home. A Miami Dade Loan Modification attorney at our firm can help.

There is Hope and Help for these borrowers.  While there are strict eligibility requirements under these programs,  and it may be necessary to make sure you qualify before submitting a modification request, we are here to help..

Loan Modification Green Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.The Government has announced that the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) will be extended until the end of 2016.

HAMP provides modifications for homeowners that are  facing hardships and can no longer afford their mortgages.

In order to qualify for a loan modification under HAMP, the guidelines are strict and  require a homeowner to have income (although disability and unemployment qualify).  Once qualified, HAMP is a loan modification program that can lower interest rate to 2%, and significantly  lower homeowners  monthly mortgage payments.

At the law firm of Jacqueline Salcines, PA we handle homeowner qualification for HAMP since the program was initiated in 2009.   We are keenly aware and have programs to qualify borrowers, while they continue to face the challenges of paying their mortgage or refinancing their loans.

Our HAMP experience has been obtained by working closely with lenders and  borrowers, in both the mortgage and real estate arena, to represent them in litigation involving foreclosures and loss mitigation options.

South Florida Loan Modification and Foreclosure Lawyers

Many homeowners do not know they have options when their properties are underwater.  Since 2009,  HAMP has been successful at providing relies for hundreds of thousands of homeowners and frankly is the best program to qualify for.  The fact that the government has elected to extend HAMP for Homeowners is wonderful news.

The most important thing a homeowner can do is hire an attorney to qualify them prior to submitting any loan modification application. By qualifying you up front, a HAMP modification becomes streamlined and often approved quickly.

If you need assistance to see if you qualify, call us today.

Hand with a house key.Ever since the real estate bubble burst, securing financing for the purchase of real estate has been challenging.  Tighter loan restrictions and fewer, more strict lending programs have stymied many real estate purchasers.  The Qualified Mortgage Rule went into effect on January 2014 to address these issues but how are homebuyers impacted by this new rule?

The New Qualified Mortgage Rule is a new program designed to make sure borrowers can repay their loans.  It is also known as the “ability to re-pay loan” rule.    As defined by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the program calculates the loan applied for at a 30 year term, with  points and fees paid by borrower.  Whatever this number equals, it can not exceed more than 3 percent of the total loan amount.  Lenders are required  to provide proof that the borrower has the ability to repay the loan and must confirm the debt to income ratio, which must equal no more than 43 percent.

While lenders had already tightened their restrictions significantly after the mortgage debacle. this equates to additional documents from borrowers to cover the lenders and their liability.   Self-employed borrowers will have a hard time getting a mortgage if they do not have a long history of consistent income.  It also impacts buyers looking for jumbo loans, over $417,000.00, making it more difficult to qualify for such loans.

The bottom line is to start with a real estate attorney and the right banking professional.  As a team, we can find the right loan for you and make sure that banks are working within required guidelines and restrictions.

At my firm, I am both an accountant, lawyer and realtor.  I work closely with each and every client that is looking to take out a new loan, as well as our banking partners, to make sure they have their credit in order as well as their finances in order to find the best program for them.
