Jacksonville loan modification turns into foreclosure-lawyer.jpgMany St. Johns county Loan modifications only delay a St. Johns County Foreclosure. Many are waiting for their approval for the Obama Loan modification who will never see it.

Often the companies who collect the your payments will loose your paperwork or look for any technicality to disqualify you from the program. In the mean time, you may have waisted thousands of dollars on their trial program only to find out that you do not qualify.

The will cut your initial payments but tacked on the balance to the end when the interest rates will be higher. This means you will actually be paying more for your home. If you home is upside down it will not change the fact that you will be overpaying for you home. There might be better options for you but unless you discuss them with a Florida Foreclosure Lawyer you will not have the opportunity to. Many loan modification agreement have clauses included which purport to waive your future rights to valuable claims against the banks, loan processors, mortgage servicers and those involved in the debt collection and debt servicing. Be very careful before you sign one of these agreements and do not attempt to do it without representation.

If you live in Dual, Clay, St. Johns County or any of the surrounding counties in North Florida, you should carefully review your options before signing any loan modification paperwork. You may actually reduce your rights to claims you may have against the banks or owners of your loan by making payments and or agreeing to one of their fake modifications. If you look carefully, the payments you make will often be the same or even higher and only the term and the monthly amount in the beginning might change. You may be accepting a smaller payment today and getting forced to waive your rights to the the claims you may have for their improper violations of the law.

Not every bank or mortgage company has violated the law, but we will be happy to review your documents to let you know if you have claims for damages.
