Before looking into foreclosure defense services, it’s a good idea to look into loan modification. If you’re having trouble making your monthly mortgage payments or you’re underwater on your mortgage, loan modification may allow you to keep your home. According to, loan modification is an agreement between you and your lender changing some of the aspects of your loan. Depending on your circumstances, loan modification may reduce your interest rate, lower your monthly payments or temporary suspend your monthly payments.

Here are some things to remember while looking into loan modification:

  3. To apply for loan modification, you will have to provide a lot of personal financial information. Be sure to provide honest and accurate information. This will make the process go more smoothly.
  4. As part of the loan modification process, you can include a hardship letter. This is a great way to explain your specific circumstances. Your hardship letter must be factual and well written.

Avoid Scams

With the high foreclosure rate in Florida, there are many scam artists trying to take advantage of struggling home owners.
