FAQ about Loan Modification

1.) What does it mean when you modify a loan?

When you enter a loan modification agreement, you and your lender agree on changes to the terms of how you will repay it, typically by agreeing to lengthen the period of time you have to pay back the money you borrowed. For example, a 15-year loan might be turned into a 20-year loan. You still have to repay the same amount of money – plus interest – but you have more time to pay, meaning that each of your monthly payments will be smaller. Loan modifications are one way that financial institutions can make it easier for mortgage holders beset by financial difficulties to stay in their homes.

2) How does a homeowner benefit from loan modification?

Modification can reduce the size of your monthly mortgage payment. Obviously, that adjustment can be crucial to your ability to keep your home if you lose your job or experience other financial distress. A typical restructuring gives you an additional five years to pay off your mortgage. It may also be possible to re-negotiate your borrowed advance to reduce your interest rate.

3) Is loan modification the same thing as refinancing?

No. When you refinance a loan, you are in essence retiring – paying off – your original loan with money you get by taking out a second loan. But when you modify it, you keep the original loan but change some of the repayment terms. Refinancing can help you save tens of thousands of dollars on the lifetime cost of your home, but you need a good credit record and reliable income to qualify for the second borrowed amount. Loan modification, by contrast, is an option for homeowners who are under financial duress and who would have difficulty qualifying for refinancing.

4) My credit score isn’t the best. What are my chances of getting a loan modification?

You can have a less-than-perfect credit history and still qualify for a loans modification, although you may have to work harder to get your lender to agree to it. The companies that broker the modification agreements will be looking at different things to decide whether you’re a good bet for a modification or not. These companies will certainly look at whether you’ve been paying your mortgage on time in the past. But they also understand that people may going through hard times for reasons that are beyond their control, such as losing a job or seeing their hours or compensation cut. You won’t necessarily get the same sympathy if you apply to refinance.

5) I ‘m falling behind on my mortgage payments and am terrified of losing my home. Can a loan modification prevent that?

Here, modifying might keep you from having to default on your mortgage by making your monthly payments smaller and easier to handle on a reduced income. It’s important to understand, though, that modifying a loan does not mean taking it off the books. You will still have to repay your lender the amount of money you borrowed, plus interest. You should make sure that you understand what your financial obligations would be under the terms of a loan modification before you agree to one.

6) Where can I find out more about getting a loan modification?

There are public agencies that help homeowners figure out whether a loan modification is the right option for them and advise them on how to secure modifications. There are also private companies that specialize in negotiating these type deals.

It might not be a lot of money, but it will be enough for a pricy medical bill you cannot afford two weeks before payday or for any other unexpected expense you are not able to afford. These loans last approximately two weeks and they are meant to be repaid on the next pay day, hence the name of the loan.

What concerns most users is the high interest rate this loan carries. This rate ranges between and annual 350 percent and 700 percent, which might seems monstrously high compared to the rate charged on a regular personal loan. The problem arises when the borrower finds himself unable to repay the loan after it is due, such a high rate over a two week loan might not seem too much, but what happens when it is not repaid timely? Interest rate will begin to pile up, becoming a financial nightmare.

Car Title Loans

This type of loan is, as stated before on this article, a secured loan. You borrow a sum of money by pledging your car as a security for the loan. The amount of money you can apply for ranges between $1100 and $3000 more or less. As you can see, this loan can be compared to a secured form of a payday loan. It is also a short-term loan, usually lasting between 15 and 30 days at most. If you fail to repay it at the end of the loan, you will be able to “roll it over”. If “rolled” over, the interest rate on the loan will accumulate.

The tricky thing about this loan type is that if for some reason you fail to repay it after it has been “flipped” the maximum amount of times (by law, 6 times), you may have your car repossessed.

The interest rate on car title loans, just like in payday loans, is very high. Perhaps even higher than on a cash advance loan. The normal rate is about 25%, or a 300% annual rate.

Vehicle title loans are meant to be used only in an emergency, otherwise, if used regularly for common purchases, they constitute a very bad deal for the consumer.

Auto Title Lenders

These are the lenders offering auto title loans. They make an awful high amount of profit from the interest rate they charge on the loan, and sometimes will do anything to entice you to apply for one of their loans. They will focus on bad credit and elderly people. If you are going through a rough patch and you are in need of money, applying for a title loan involving your car probably will not be the best idea. Try and find other sources of finance because in the end, the interest rate will end up eating up for debt, and you will not benefit from this at all.

Often, these lenders call themselves 601 lenders. Why is that? Because they can only charge high interest rates if the loan is above $800.

Vehicle Title Loan Requirements

Qualifying for this type of loan is very easy. It might be a bit harder than qualifying for a cash advance loan, but easy nonetheless. The first and most important requirement is a car. You must be a car owner (which must be free from liens against it) and be in possession of the title. You must also be employed and be an American citizen with at least 6 months of residence in your current home.


About Small Business Loans

Let’s Cough It Up

Since government grants are so limiting and relatively difficult to get, the only possible solution is to apply for a loan to get the necessary cash with which to start off. Nothing is really free in this world, so you must give something to be able to receive something, right?

What Do You Give, Anyway?

Well, in order to receive credit, you must give a security. This is done by “pinning” your property or car to the loan, until you have finished paying for it. This is similar, of course, to any other type of loan, so why even mention it? You see, the great difference is that you will not be using the money for leisure or pleasure, but for working your eyes out in order to get your daily bread.

This fact alone will mean a big difference regarding the amount you get and the payback conditions. So, to do things right and make them look even better, make sure you write down a detailed plan of whatever your business needs to start working: What your expenses will be, fixed cost, profit, target market, inventory, cash flow and a projection of the evolution of the business for the first five years.

If You Look Great, You Will Also Feel Great

Prepare your business plan and have some copies printed, so you can present it in a neat folder to the banker or the lender when you finally start searching for the loan. The fact that you’ve gone into all the trouble of designing a business plan will make you feel great, giving a good image to your lenders, temporary “partners” of your business.

Be Prepared

The last thing you want to do is to go to a lender empty-handed and ask for a handful of bucks. They’ll ask you a lot of questions to which you will have answers, if you take a well-designed business plan. Let me mention something that is one of Aristotle Onassis’ favorite sayings. “Know as much as you can about the person you will be speaking to and about his business”.

This means, don’t venture into a negotiation until you know the answers to all the questions you will be asked, or at least, as many as you possibly can. If you are going to ask for a loan, then you have to know what the current rates are, the conditions, the requirements and any little catch that might get you a better deal.

The Little Millionaire

Onassis was a rather short guy and not very handsome, but he had the gift of making millions. His personal assistant used to say that he would spend the whole night pacing about his cabin on the “Cristina”, speaking out loud, and thinking up all the possible questions he would be asked the following day, and obviously, all the answers.

It is a good thing to imitate the healthy, the wealthy and the wise, even if it is only to be prepared for what you are about to initiate and being capable of designing a dream and fulfilling it. Your small business will be grateful and before you know where you really are, it may be even bigger than you had planned.

Understand What Your Lender Is Saying

Mortgage Or Home Loan Concepts

Mortgage loans have a jargon of their own and also share concepts with other loan types. That’s why we will start with this loan type. The PRINCIPAL is the amount of debt that you owe to the lender. This amount does not include the INTERESTS (cost of the loan) that are generated over time when the INTEREST RATE (which is a percentage that indicates the price of the transaction) is applied to the principal.

A FIXED RATE is an interest percentage that does not change over time and remains the same throughout the whole life of the loan whereas a VARIABLE RATE is an interest percentage that changes according to market variations thus increasing or reducing the amount of the monthly payments. The fixed rate provides more predictability while a variable rate is always lower than the fixed rate if considered at the same time.

Usually a loan transaction has two parts: the lender and the borrower. When it comes to mortgage loans, the lender is called the MORTGAGEE and the borrower is referred to as the MORTGAGOR.

The property used as collateral or being bought with a mortgage loan has a certain value that needs to be known in order to process a loan of this kind. In order to do this, a realtor specialist will calculate this value based on many factors known due to his profession. This process is called APPRAISAL and implies an approximate calculation of the property’s market value.

The lack of payment of several mortgage loan installments implies a DEFAULT. The consequences of a default if the repayment is not restarted are very serious. The gravest one is FORECLOSURE which is a legal process by which the property guaranteeing the loan is sold compulsory in order for the lender to collect the money owed from the amount produced by the transaction.

Refinancing And Home Equity

REFINANCING is the process by which a previous mortgage loan is replaced with a new one. This can be done either to save money by obtaining a lower interest rate or by reducing the length of the loan or to make the loan more affordable by extending the repayment program. When refinancing a home loan one needs to check that PREPAYMENT PENALTY FEES (if present) do not turn refinancing the home loan into an expensive decision. These fees are often charged by lenders that want to make sure that the borrower remains paying the loan installments if you repay the loan sooner than agreed.

HOME EQUITY is the difference between the amount of debt guaranteed by a property and the market value of the asset at any given time. The available equity on a property lets the owner obtain further financing by securing an additional loan with the equity. These loans are known as HOME EQUITY LOANS and also as SECOND MORTGAGES.

First Time Home Ownership Tips

It is important to consider a number of things if you are planning to remortgage, as otherwise you could end up paying for more than you need to on your mortgage. The whole point of remortgaging is to save money on your mortgages, so you need to take your time when it comes to choosing a new deal or provider.

You want to try and get the most competitive rate of interest possible in order to keep your repayments down, and this means comparing interest rates and ensuring that the lender has passed on the recent base rate cuts to borrowers. You need to ensure that you can afford the deposit that is required by the lender, so make sure that you compare different lenders to check what sort of minimum deposit they are looking for.

Another thing to bear in mind is that many lenders will charge arrangement or set up fees for remortgages, and again these can vary from one lender to another. Make sure that you check both the interest rate and the arrangement fees, as some lenders fool consumers by offering low interest rates but then charge them a ridiculously high arrangement fee, which makes up for the lower interest rate.

You should ensure that before you commit to a remortgage you first contact your existing mortgage provider and find out whether they charge an early settlement fee on your existing mortgage, and if so how much this fee will be. Only by checking on these settlement figures, and by comparing interest rates and arrangement fees from new providers, will you be able to determine whether remortgaging is actually going to benefit you.

Amongst the things that will affect how high or low your monthly repayments will be on your new mortgage is the repayment period over which you take the loan, and the longer the repayment period the lower your repayments will be.With this in mind you should also ensure that you compare the repayments periods on offer from different lenders before you make any commitment.

Your credit rating will go a long way towards determining how much you will be charged in terms of interest on your new mortgage, and those with bad credit will pay a far higher APR than the typical one advertised. In some cases you may find that due to your damaged credit you are unable to find a lender that is prepared to offer you a new mortgage loan, especially in the current financial climate.

With most lenders now operating online you will find that finding and comparing lenders and mortgage deals is fast and easy, as you can do all of your research online.
