The State of Connecticut recognizes the potential social and financial consequences of widespread foreclosure, and therefore, strives to keep as many homeowners as possible in their homes. As a result, homeowners can apply for state-sponsored loans or funding that can help bring them current on delinquent mortgage payments, or assist them in offsetting higher interest payments on variable rate loans. Our attorneys can explain how these programs work and, if possible, help you apply for assistance. Some of the specific programs that may be available to you include:
- Foreclosure Mediation
- Loan Modifications
- Emergency Mortgage Assistance Program
- Connecticut Fair Alternative Mortgage Lending Initiative and Education Services
In general, banks are willing to work with homeowners, when they believe they stand to recover more money through a loan modification than if they foreclose on a home, and attempt to resell it. Loan modifications are usually reserved for homeowners who are in financial distress or have a high variable rate mortgages. By building strong relationships in the community, opening channels of communication, and bringing attention to your financial situation, we are often able to work out loan modifications with local and national banks. If a bank is willing to modify a loan, a homeowner is typically given a 30-year fixed rate mortgage – extending the life of the loan but decreasing monthly payments as a result.
