Please continue reading and speak with our firm to learn more about how we can assist you through every step of the process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What is a loan modification?

Essentially, a loan modification is different from completely refinancing your mortgage. When you request a loan modification, you are essentially requesting that you can keep your original loan while reducing certain payments. Depending on your situation and your needs, there are several avenues we can take when modifying your loan. This is why it is so important that you retain the services of an attorney who’s had years of experience assisting clients in similar situations. Our firm is ready to help.

How do I know if I am eligible for a loan modification in New York?

The first thing that you should understand is that all foreclosure lawsuits in NYS must be assigned to the Foreclosure Settlement Conference. From here, the bank will be required to assess your financial situation, and from there, the bank will have to determine whether you qualify for a loan modification. Your lender will examine your bank statements, tax returns, and other financial statements to determine why you are currently having difficulty paying off your mortgage and whether a modification may assist you in doing so. In most cases, it is best to also include a Hardship Letter. Our firm can help you draft one. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call today. We are here to help.
