The NPV formula contains secret ingredients, so it's hard for delinquent borrowers to influence the results when seeking a loan modification. But there are a couple of things APS can do.
If you are determined to remain in the home, say so. Make it loud and clear that you don't want to lose your home, and explain why. Maybe you live near your aging parents, who need your care-giving, or you would be intensely embarrassed by foreclosure. Enlist the aid of APS to construct a hardship letter.
The federal government's home value projections are updated at the beginning of each quarter. There's a slim chance that the numbers could change in your favor from one quarter to the next, so if you are turned down for a mortgage modification, you might try applying again the following quarter (if it's not too late).
Although Bankruptcy can stop a foreclosure sale date it will NOT restructure your loan. It merely sets up a repayment structure, whereby you pay your current payment to your lender, and also a second payment to the potential trustee for the many years of back payments you owe. It may not be a permanent solution in your situation, but at times a delay tactic.
APS has years of experience with both Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 ask your advisor for more information.
Sometimes homeowners behind on their mortgage are encouraged to simply sell their home when they’re behind on payments. However it can often be very lucrative for you to keep your home through mortgage litigation and start making a new lower mortgage payment or simply utilize the home for an investment property. Mortgage litigation can also buy a significant amount time in the property by delaying foreclosure.
Foreclosure is scary and is usually a process homeowners are entirely unfamiliar with. The anxiety can lead a homeowner into finding all possible means to pay back the entire past due arrears directly to the lender. Before jumping to this conclusion you should consult with professionals. APS professionals can often negotiate the elimination of lender servicing fees and penalties when obtaining a reinstatement quote. It’s also possible to capitalize all past due arrears and start off with a fresh payment through mortgage litigation.
