Preventing Homelessness, One Family at a Time
Noreen

 

A homeowner facing the possibility of homelessness, due to a series of illnesses, divorce, and legal issues, case was forwarded to our office for counseling. She was scammed of over $13k by a for-profit loan modification company. With three dependents and hardly any available funds left, she became unsure of her future and called 1-888-995- HOPE. CNAHS staff immediately reviewed and assessed the client's situation, analyzed her default and began the process of contacting her lender.

 

After a year of CNAHS appeals and reapplications, the borrower was approved for a temp modification for three months. With timely agreement payments under her belt she was approved for a 2% permanent HAMP modification. This permanent modification saved the homeowner 4% and a $579 monthly savings.  

 

After the modification CNAHS worked with the borrower to create a new action plan to increase savings, reduce debt and become more aware of scam lending practices.

 

Noreen was able to save her home, save money and reduce her debt.

 

 

CNAHS CAN DO THE SAME FOR YOU.  

 


Are you a participant of the
Home Affordable Modification Program?

Many homeowners who were able to modify their home loans through HAMP are nearing close to the five year limit and may see an increase in their payments at the end of the year. It is important to request an advance notice of your reset, so your family can prepare for the rate increase.

The Home Affordable Modification Program is working to ensure that homeowners who are nearing a reset receive up to 120 days notice before a rate increase on their home loan. If your modification was allotted in 2009, your reset will begin this year.
