Making Home Affordable Guidelines Released Today!

By
Mortgage and Lending with The Federal Savings Bank

The new "Making Home Affordable" loan modification plan aims to help seven to nine million homeowners get their hands on more sustainable mortgage loans.

The "Home Affordable Refinance" program will be available to roughly four to five million homeowners with "solid payment history" on existing Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loans. Borrowers must provide a letter of hardship, explaining a change in circumstances or a rise in payments that will lead to foreseeable default.

The "Home Affordable Modification" will help three to four million at-risk homeowners facing foreclosure by reducing monthly mortgage payments to as low as two percent.

- There is no minimum or maximum LTV ratio for eligibility purposes.
- Loans can be refinanced or modified up to the current high-cost jumbo loan limit
- Loans originated on or before January 1, 2009 are eligible
- Borrowers must fully document income, sign an IRS 4506-T, provide two most recent pay stubs, most recent tax return & sign affidavit of financial hardship
- Loans must have been originated on or before January 1, 2009

The Home Affordable Refinance program ends in June 2010, while the loan modification program will run from now until December 31, 2012 (loans can only be modified once).

"Treasury announced that the Making Home Affordable program will include additional incentives to extinguish second liens on loans modified under this program."

"Extinguishing second liens will make mortgages more affordable, improve loan performance, and help prevent foreclosures."

Second mortgages will not be included in the front-end debt-to-income ratio, making it a whole lot easier to get the housing payment down to the desired target of 31 percent.
