Acquiring a modification of the terms of your original mortgage is many times the best possible outcome for a family faced with foreclosure. If your mortgage is past due or about to become so, working toward loan modification is one possibility for homeowners.The application process is intense and the potential for error with the document submission is great. The process of delay caused by lenders’ unclear communication can cause nearly insurmountable problems, especially if your home is in foreclosure. The status of your loan modification will generally not waylay a suit for foreclosure.
If successful, a modification could result in a lower interest rate, reduced or deferred principal balance, and a lower monthly payment. Any arrearages on the loan will be capitalized into the balance of your loan, and the loan will be brought current thereby eliminating the threat of foreclosure.
It is important to note that a borrower can apply for a modification at any point before or during the foreclosure process before your home has been sold. In North Carolina, a foreclosure action is not necessarily stalled because you are negotiating loan modification with your lender, but your chances of avoiding foreclosure are greater.
