Phone calls with the lender: An average modification includes 30 to 40 hours of phone calls, the majority of which is spent on hold. Verifying the receipt of documentation: Documentation required by the lender to process a loan modification is generally sent via fax. Depending on the lender, documents may have to be sent up to a dozen times. Conference calls between the lender, homeowner and modification company: Occasionally, the lender will want to speak with the homeowner directly. This includes coordinating with the borrower and lender to schedule a mutually acceptable appointment time and participating in the conference call. The Modification depends on the lender timelines: The timeline for a modification varies from lender to lender, taking anywhere from 30 to 90 days.
