About the Author
Michael Nazarinia is Principal of REST Report Matters and covers loan modifications and other alternatives to foreclosure at restreportmatters.com and loanmodhelpcenter.com. He has personally seen over 1000 modifications, 1000 stop sales, several hundred forbearance agreements and 2nd lien settlements since 2008, and speaks to homeowners, advocates and attorneys regularly about their unique cases from both a hard numbers and problem-solving perspective. He has worked on the mathematical analysis of several thousand modifications with attorneys and brokers since 2007 using net present value (NPV) comparative analysis (since 2010) using the R.E.S.T Report Matters Loan Modification Disposition Analysis Platform.
The following is a syndicated alert originally posted at LoanSafe.org by Michael Fisher
When a loan modification is made permanent, the only additional amount that should be added to the loan balance is the allowable past due escrow advances such as real estate taxes and insurance and any delinquent interest payments.
Any other fees added to the loan balance are not allowed, if the loan amount has increased the principal balance upon written permanent loan modification offer.
We are conducting a FREE review of certain permanent loan modification documents/contracts/agreements offered by certain servicers to homeowners used to make a loan modification permanent to see if we can get your fees refunded to you.
There is NO COST to you, and you would get some money refunded from your mortgage lender or servicer that granted you a permanent loan modification that increased the principal balance of your loan.
Based on a review completed May 2nd, 2012 of 142 permanent loan modification contracts, an average of $26,800 was added to the loan balance on these permanent loan modifications that increased the overall principal balance in the permanent loan modification agreement.
We only want to review permanent loan modification documents from homeowners who have their complete set of permanent loan modification documents from the following servicers
We are focused on any permanent loan modification offers/documents/agreements from servicers below to homeowners at any time since 2007 for
Aurora Loan Servicing,
Litton Loan Servicing,
Ocwen Loan Servicing,
One West Bank,

as well as permanent loan modification documents/agreements/contracts that were issued on or after February 9th, 2012 for
