New Jersey Loan Modification Attorneys

Real Estate Attorney New JerseyAre you struggling to pay your mortgage each month or facing foreclosure? There are legal avenues that allow you to reduce your debts and save your home!

One way to prevent foreclosure is through loan modification. Banks and mortgage lenders don’t want to pursue foreclosure on your home. Working with lenders to modify your loan can be one of the fastest and least expensive ways to save your property, for both you and them. Foreclosing and reselling your property is a time-consuming process and expensive process for banks. It can result in large lender losses related to the foreclosure process itself, the time involved in the process, and the fact that foreclosure properties are often sold for less than market value, and sometimes less than the balance left on the initial mortgage.

This means that a mortgage lender is often willing to negotiate with you, rather than pursue the foreclosure process. An experienced New Jersey loan modification attorney works as a liaison between you and your bank to negotiate an agreement or adjustment in loan terms that allows you to maintain your residence while reducing your monthly payment to something you can afford. If you need help keeping your family in your home and managing your budget, the residential mortgage loan modification experts at Law Offices of Patel, Soltis, and Cardenas are here for you!

What is Mortgage Modification?

adjusting documents for loan modificationA mortgage loan modification modifies the terms of an existing mortgage. This is not the same as refinancing, which often includes new fees associated with a standard mortgage closing. Instead, we work with the lender to modify your monthly mortgage payments to a rate you can reasonably afford as a means of debt relief. If you can’t afford your mortgage payments, or have fallen behind, avoid foreclosure with the support of a New Jersey loan modification lawyer at Law Offices of Patel, Soltis, and Cardenas.

Our qualified mortgage modification experts will review current home prices, the housing market, your monthly income, debt-to-income ratio, tax returns, credit card debt, mortgage debt, student loans, and overall finances, to help you build a solid, well-researched case to present to the banks as part of your New Jersey foreclosure defense. We help you understand your chances of modification, and create a plan that will work for both you and your lender.

Loan Modification Options

weighing your legal optionsThere are many different tactics and methods our property lawyers can use to convince your mortgage lender to modify your mortgage. While debt forgiveness is rarely an option, there are other ways to reduce your payments either short or long-term and avoid foreclosure or personal bankruptcy.

A loan modification attorney will negotiate with your bank, mortgage companies, or loan providers to negotiate a reduced interest rate, extend the loan period, or possibly reduce the principal balance owed. Banks are mainly interested in loss mitigation, so if you can present a case that shows how this is a good option financially for both you and the bank, you can greatly increase your chances of obtaining loan modification.

If you are experiencing a short-term financial hardship, or have an overall good credit history, there are even more options available to you. Our experienced negotiators are driven to keeping you out of foreclosure and in your home. The New Jersey real estate attorneys at Law Offices of Patel, Soltis, and Cardenas are here for you!
