B Of A Loan Mod Declined... Current On Mortgage Payments?
(Portland, OR )
My Countrywide (Freddie Mac) loan has been transferred to BofA...
I applied for a loan mod last April-Declined because I was current on my mortgage.
I contacted HOPE- confirmed they can't decline on this basis..I contacted BofA - they won't re-open so I have to make another application, provided I have a 25% change in Gross income-fact or fiction?
Luckily I've had an increase recently in income but I'm overly cautious speaking to a Collection Agent who admits he knows nothing about the Loan Mod program.
Any advice would be appreciated. - Seth

Being current on your mortgage is not a valid reason to decline, you can appeal this decision at the executive level but too much time may have passed. It is worth a try.
You can re-apply and there is no HAMP Guideline that requires a 25% change in income. That may be an internal Bank of America policy to cut down on re-applications. It can be ignored on the basis that an invalid reason for denial was given.
Request Review Of HAMP Denial At Executive Level
Send in a Qualified Written Request (QWR) per the instructions at How To Save House From Foreclosure - 3 Ways To Stop A Foreclosure Auction
- Clearly state that you are requesting that your HAMP loan modification denial be reviewed at executive level as an invalid reason for denial was given.
- Send a copy of the denial letter and reason you were given for denial, state that you are in imminent default due to the financial hardship you are facing with your mortgage being greater than 31% of your gross monthly income.
- Give the specifics of your financial hardship and any changes that occurred to cause the hardship.
- Re-send all the documents, evidences and financial required for HAMP mortgage modification, since your information is most likely more than 90 days old.
- Print off and use these Bank Of America forms. Collect all documentation and evidences required in the "Gather and bring" section of the BOA website (answer the questions and you will be told what evidence is needed from you).
