You may look at Florida as one of the ideal destination for tourists, but locally, it is also affected by the economic meltdown especially for the locals confronting the problem of foreclosure. Over 100.000 of foreclosure processes were initiated in the last few years. One cause is the big number of mortgages given to people who were unable to take the financial commitment from the start. Most zero down payment mortgages ended with this. Those who didn’t pay for down payment also found it hard to handle the monthly rates. The bank gives too much credit to people who were unable to keep up with it. Aside from that, the bank has to deal with huge number of houses and properties that is of no use in its financial transactions. Even though the price of foreclosed homes is way below the price of the houses on the market, interested buyers aren’t enough. The government enforced a new law that may salvage Florida’s economy. It involves the likelihood of loan modification following a determinate time in the interest of the borrower.
Before considering a loan modification, you should check your eligibility for the procedure. If you have taken the loan for less than a year, applying for a modification of the terms of the contract is not possible because your income state doesn’t changed in such a short time. However, if you are confronting unpredictable events, like dismissal from your work place, you can communicate with your lender and present the facts stating your situation. Key adjustments won’t be provided to your lease, but the bank will reduce it from the fees and penalties that you may have. It is in the bank’s interest that you pay your monthly rates. A failure from you is a loss for the bank as well. A good cooperation between you is an advantage to both sides of the agreement. If you are confused with the steps, you can ask from a lawyer to give you advice in this matter. Measures will be done so that the loan will be easier for you to acquit. The term in the contract can be prolonged or the interest rate can be reduced.
The Loan Modification program has been successful in its goal up until now. Many people have re-possessed their homes after they enter the program and re-negotiating with the bank. This proves that the proposed law by the government is capable and may solve the issue of foreclosed proprieties.
