The Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) is a Federal Government program meant to help homeowners with underwater mortgages restructure their mortgage payments with the help of their banks. By using HAMP, homeowners can lower their monthly mortgage payments to 31% of what they were originally. Such a modification is especially useful for long-term homeowners who have had a sudden change as a result of a lay-off or other kind of unemployment. Although many banks participate in HAMP, not every one does, so it is important to find out whether your lending institution participates in the program. Our lawyers try to make sure that all participating institutions do indeed help in mortgage restructuring. We will provide you with assistance if you have been denied mortgage modification.
Our consumer fraud attorneys can provide you with legal assistance in the following circumstances, all of which have been the targets of Home Affordable Modification Program litigation:
The Home Affordable Modification Program was introduced in 2010 to stymie the rampant foreclosures by unscrupulous banks. It should also go without saying that many unscrupulous banks try to avoid the obligations of HAMP and go forth with foreclosures regardless of any paperwork filed. It is for this reason that it is crucial to have competent HAMP attorneys ready to go after miscreants who refuse to abide by legally binding obligation and basic moral duty.
Unfortunately, the original regulations dictating lender behavior in HAMP did not have sufficient teeth to prevent unscrupulous behavior by banks. Fortunately, over time, the rules became stricter and judges began to rule in favor of foreclosed homeowners.
For example, one woman tried to restructure her mortgage with Bank of America, but the bank claimed that it had lost her paperwork a number of times, and it proceeded to begin foreclosure proceedings. This sort of behavior runs in direct contradiction to both the spirit and letter of the HAMP regulations. Fortunately, judges ruled in favor of the wronged woman and against the mendacious practices of Bank of America.
So long as you fulfill the criteria of eligibility for HAMP, you should not be denied the opportunity to keep your home. The criteria are as follows (taken directly from the HAMP website):
Our attorneys can help ensure that you get the refinancing that you need to stay financially afloat and keep your home.
