Foreclosure

Home Loan Modification

The present Loss Mitigation/Mortgage Modification process used in South Carolina is an efficient, manageable, and impartial process that does not delay confirmation of the plan in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case. The process also allows for loan modifications in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case, since the loan modification indicates the intention of the debtor to the creditor. Our firm has been able to successfully implement the Loss Mitigation/Mortgage Modification procedure and obtain confirmable Chapter 13 plans.

This procedure allows a person of fixed or limited means to retain his dwelling, possibly at a reduced payment and interest, while having a manageable Chapter 13 plan payment.

This benefits all creditors, not just the mortgage creditors, by giving the debtor an opportunity to keep their residence and grow equity, while also allowing them to pay a dividend to their creditors when they might not otherwise be able to do so.

Benefits of Loss Mitigation/Mediation Procedures and its Relation to Chapter 13 Plan and Process Loss mitigation is any act or agreement between the lender and borrower intended to resolve a default other than through an adverse foreclosure by the lender. The most common types of loss mitigation include: deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, short sale, forbearance, and loan modification.

In the majority of Chapter 13 cases, debtors are seeking to keep their homes. The Loss Mitigation/Mortgage Modification program is designed to help debtors who cannot afford their mortgages or who fall behind, and need a more manageable payment option than the traditional cure and maintain option. Loss mitigation during a debtor's bankruptcy case can provide an opportunity for the restructuring of the home mortgage.

Applying for a loan modification inside of a bankruptcy gives the loan modification process more structure and other benefits. The bankruptcy can alleviate the concerns of the lender about other outstanding debts, such as credit cards and medical bills.

Additionally, if there are issues
with an underwater second mortgage or an arrearage on homeowner's association dues that may prevent a loan modification of the first mortgage, a bankruptcy provides different alternatives for resolving these issues, such as stripping the obligation off the property or curing a default.
