HAMP, or the Home Affordable Modification Program, is a federal government mortgage relief program that was enacted into law in 2009. We often see false HAMP denial victims, or homeowners who are struggling for mortgage help and who qualify for HAMP relief, but who are not allowed to get it from their mortgage company. Unfortunately in many of these cases, obtaining lower mortgage payments through HAMP is the difference between saving and losing the home. Therefore, if you are a homeowner in Lorain County needing a lower mortgage payment in order to stay in your home, contact us today!
Little understood and often ignored are homeowner protection laws meant to curb abuses suffered by homeowners at the hands of their mortgage companies/servicers every day throughout the country. Unfortunately, our government seems inclined to favor banks over people, leading to almost non-existent enforcement of these laws. Nonetheless, these laws, if used properly, can serve as a powerful tool for the homeowner to bring the company in line and reach mortgage success. If you are a homeowner who has been trying to get a mortgage modification and repeatedly told that the information sent in wasn’t received or that there was always one more item needed to complete your application or told that you didn’t qualify for help only to be told to start the application process all over again, chances are that your legal rights have been violated. Calling your mortgage company out on that violation could very well be the key to your success. We proudly serve all of Lorain County.
There is a growing trend for mortgage companies to add highly suspect fees onto homeowners’ monthly statements. Such fees can be in the form of sudden substantial increases in the escrow charge for taxes and insurance, or in the form of default-related charges, such as “Property Inspection” and “Property Valuation” fees, attorney fees, certified mail charges and the like. A homeowner seeing these charges on his or her mortgage statement should be very diligent in questioning these charges in writing. If an adequate answer to the question is not forthcoming, it could be time to seek competent professional mortgage help. In some cases, homeowner protection laws may even provide for reimbursement of costs incurred in doing so. We proudly serve all of Lorain County.
I had a problem in a field in which I do not practice, and I wanted to go to a professional for help. Dan and Kate laid out a plan for me, stuck to it, and resolved the problem exactly as they had said it would be handled. I was very pleased and would highly recommend McGookey Law Offices to anyone. - David L. Sipe
Tenacious Professionals Who Know Their Business and Their Clients Objectives
We found ourselves in a difficult mortgage situation when we lived in Charlotte NC and we were receiving no help from Wells Fargo ( the issue dragged on for almost a year) although we had worked with them on 3 previous houses we mortgaged. I happened to be talking with my accountant and he suggested we talk with Mr. McGookey, based on what he had heard from other people. We met with Mr. McGookey, we explained what we were dealing with. He asked us a series of questions, and explained thoroughly what he could do to help us. He explained what it would cost approximately and approximately how long it would take to get results. The resolution took less time than we expected and the cost was exactly what we expected. I would recommend Mr. McGookey to anyone looking for legal advice pertaining to a mortgage.
Mr McGookey Your emails referencing mortgage owners situations has been helpful. I have a mediation appt set next month. I dont know what to expect but I am hopeful to get a loan modification. It is a fact that the servicer filed forclosure while I was in the process of a loan modification. I had decided that if I did not get the loan that I would sell my home. Forclosure was filed before I could get my decision. I am far from underwater on my existing mortgage. Not quite sure what to do or what to expect next month at this meeting with the mediator Thank you Robert Chorak
