Due to the present economy, more and more homeowners are finding themselves either unemployed or underemployed. This is causing many people to fall behind on their mortgage payments. If you find yourself in this situation the best thing you can do for yourself and your family is to apply for a loan modification as soon as possible.
A loan modification is a change to any of the original terms of your loan in an attempt to prevent foreclosure. This could include lowering the interest rate, changing from an adjustable to a fixed interest rate, extending the length of the loan, and reducing the loan balance. An experienced attorney can work directly with your bank on your behalf to apply for the modification. After a successful loan modification you will be paying a lower monthly mortgage payment. This will allow you to avoid foreclosure if you continue to make your payments according to the new lower monthly amount.
When you come to meet with Alexander Restaino at Restaino Law, LLC, he will take the time to learn about you and your financial situation to determine if a loan modification is best for you.

If a loan modification is not right for your situation, Alexander Restaino can counsel you in your other options to avoid foreclosure, including a short sale or bankruptcy.
