Orange County Loan Modification Lawyer
What are some options for my mortgage?
With the current real estate climate and the mortgage crisis in the country that has been ongoing, many Californians across the state are getting into dangerous situations with their house and the loans they have used. When an individual or family finds themselves in a situation in which they owe more to the mortgage company than the house is actually worth, that is an upsetting and financially hazardous situation to be in. Late fees, past-due fees, high interest rates, the failing economy and other financial issues can result in a situation in which you find yourself unable to pay your mortgage payments as expected.

The skilled negotiators at The Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman will fully investigate your situation in order to help you get your loan modified to a more manageable amount.

Loan Modification FAQ
If you're considering a loan modification as an alternative to foreclosure or bankruptcy, you may benefit from some answers to some frequently asked questions about the process. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has provided a helpful list of answers for those considering a modification.
Q: Will my lender conduct a property inspection before approving my loan modification?
A: Yes, according to Mortgagee Letter 2000-05. If the lender believes that your property may be below standards then they will conduct an interior inspection.
Q: When calculating a new interest rate, which date is used?
A: Your lender will use the date on which they approve your loan modification to determine the appropriate interest rate for your new mortgage.
Q: Can my lender capitalize an escrow advance for the purpose of homeowner association fees?
A: According to the HUD handbook, "Lenders must also escrow funds for those items which, if not paid, would create liens on the property positioned ahead of the FHA-insured mortgage."
