Loan modification can be helpful for people faced with the threat of foreclosure, if it is handled properly. At Garland Griffiths Knaupp, Attorneys, we take care to see that people have the opportunity to apply for loan modification if they are eligible. We also make sure that there is no discriminatory treatment or servicer errors in the loan modification process, which would give the homeowner a legal claim against the servicer. Ultimately, we can assist with loan modifications when appropriate as part of a comprehensive foreclosure defense strategy.
Beware Of Loan Modification Businesses
You have probably seen advertisements from loan modification services offering a magic bullet for struggling homeowners. We recommend against paying any company to do a loan modification. Many of these companies are out-of-state, fly-by-night businesses. They do not have lawyers on staff and have no legal strength. They may take your money without providing any real service. They may even make matters worse.
If you are going to pursue loan modification, we encourage you to do so by working with a counselor certified by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) while having one of our Portland loan modification and foreclosure attorneys on your side to look out for your interests. It is important to be aware that you do not have a right to loan modification under Oregon law. However, you do have the right to apply and be treated fairly. We will see that you are.
