Over the past several years, I have met with numerous home owners who had fallen behind on their mortgages. In many of these cases, the homeowners have contacted their mortgage company seeking to modify the loan and stop any foreclosure proceedings. In each case, the mortgage company acted as if they would be happy to assist and indicated they would immediately be sending out a modification packet and made it sound as if a loan modification would be quickly forthcoming. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
