West Virginia Mortgage Negotiation Lawyers

Many lenders are open to modifying loans and have established programs to facilitate the efficient modification of interest rates, mortgage durations or loan amounts. This is a particularly attractive option for homeowners who are not eligible for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy or who, for some reason, do not wish to file bankruptcy. However, there are a number of potential pitfalls that await in the path of a homeowner, particularly one who attempts to negotiate with the lender without legal assistance.

To learn more about loan modifications and whether that is the right approach for you, call Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard, P.L.L.C., at 304-574-2727 . In a free consultation, an attorney can explain the loan modification process and help you decide if that approach or another debt relief solution is best for you.

Are You Tempted To Negotiate On Your Own?

Before you start negotiating with your mortgage company, you should learn about loan modifications and what lies ahead. These are some of the challenges you face:

The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing — Many mortgage lenders are large institutions. While you are negotiating with a loan officer, another arm of the lender may be preparing to foreclose.

Modifying a loan is a complicated process — Numerous documents must be collected, reviewed and organized. If the mortgage is a government-backed loan (as most are these days), Fannie Mae must give its approval. It can take a year or longer to complete the process. In the meantime, you are paying high interest charges.

One mistake could trigger a foreclosure or send you back to Square One — When it comes to getting a loan modification, the risks of failure are high.
