Qualifying for mortgage modification
There are certain criteria you must meet to qualify for a mortgage modification. Largely, these criteria are based on income and necessity.
If you earn too much, the bank will not see a reason to modify your mortgage. If you don't earn enough to make even a modified payment, then you're doing yourself a disservice because your home can still be foreclosed upon after a modification.
Some examples of the qualifiers for mortgage modification include:
- The home is your primary residence - If you're about to lose your only family home, your creditors are much more likely to listen to your case than if you are worried about losing your summer vacation home.
- Mortgage exceeds 31% of your total income - As stated before - regardless of your circumstances, if your income is too high, your creditors aren't going to understand why you can't pay back the original principle at the original rate.
- Unpaid loan doesn't exceed the limit - If the unpaid principle on your mortgage is more than $730,000, you most likely will not qualify for mortgage modification.
We help show your bank that your actual income level is neither too low to achieve a modified mortgage payment nor too high for you to deserve consideration. If your lender demands evidence of your financial hardship, we build a compelling case for your genuine need.
