Since the beginning of the recession in 2008, loan modification programs have been available primarily through the Home Affordable Mortgage Program (HAMP). If a homeowner was unable to quality, the individual mortgage company could offer its own programs.

Our firm has helped clients since the downturn’s beginning with modifications. We have seen a tremendous amount succeed through the lowered interest rates and/or lengthening the loan. Seldom, however, did lenders reduce principal balances. But now they are.

We have seen eliminations of entire second mortgage balances.
