Industry Tips

This information is general in nature and is not intended as a report on any company, service or product.

Beware of any loan modification service that requires you to pay money up front or encourages you to stop making mortgage payments. Also be leery of any company that tells you to avoid talking to your lender.

Legitimate businesses may also offer to help with loan modifications.  However, sometimes these can be bad deals for the borrower. Some types of loan modifications could be unaffordable and might quickly lead right back to foreclosure.  It’s very important for borrowers who are considering loan modifications to understand all the options open to them, including whether they are eligible for real forms of government help, and whether they can afford the modified new loan.  Borrowers also may be signing away certain rights by agreeing to a loan modification. 

It’s important to get good advice from a qualified person, before signing. To avoid pitfalls associated with loan modification, get expert help at no cost from a volunteer lawyer or a professional foreclosure prevention counselor. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) can help you find approved housing counselors.  Qualified counselors can answer your questions about important financial issues such as loan modifications, and help you avoid foreclosure.  Go to or call 800-569-4287 for additional information.
