HOM INtro #22: Loan Modification 101

  1. 1. Brought to you by: Home Ownership Matters Training Institute INtro #22
  2. 2. To cover the basics of what is or should be part of modification since there is so much discussion and so few clear facts about what it is designed to offer to a borrower who is in default. It is critical that you do some substantial research if you believe that a modification is an option for you. Don’t be misled by a lender who does a modification which serves the purpose of allowing them to say we did one but has no practical value to you the consumer. Copyright © 2008.
