loanmodcalc.com is based on the Flex Modification program jointly developed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the direction of the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are encouraging mortgage servicers to implement the Flex Modification as of March 1, 2017 and requiring its implementation no later than October 1, 2017.
Similarly, the Mortgage Bankers Association has published guidelines for a mortgage modification program – One Mod – which essentially follows the same rules and guidelines as the Flex Modification.
For details, please see Fannie Mae Lender Letter LL-2016-06 and One Mod. Ultimately, a borrower’s ability to qualify for a mortgage modification under any program will depend on each borrower’s application and the mortgage servicer’s review.
In order to calculate a new mortgage payment, we made several assumptions (which may or may not be applicable to the borrower) including:
Accuracy of Information
Our calculator can only be as accurate as the information you provide. Failure to provide accurate information or information that cannot be validated will obviously affect the result.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
For all comparisons with the “Chapter 13” payment, we assume that the borrower has filed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and is paying all pre-petition mortgage arrears over the term of a 60-month bankruptcy plan.
*Note: Mortgage modifications are complicated. loanmodcalc.com simply attempts to give the borrower a sense of the type of modified mortgage payment that borrower may be eligible for. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE ANY RESULTS.
loanmodcalc.com is a tool designed to estimate the potential new mortgage payment a borrower may be able to obtain if they qualify for a mortgage modification under Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s Flex Modification or similar program. It uses data provided by the user and makes several assumptions. Neither loanmodcalc.com (nor the owner of the site) are mortgage servicers. All mortgage modification decisions will be made by your mortgage servicer subject to all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
How This Works
In order to provide you with a quick idea of what your payment could be, we had to make some assumptions about you and your loan (more info). And while the results are very real, ultimately, a borrower’s eligibility for any mortgage modification will depend on many factors and only the borrower’s mortgage servicer can offer and agree to a new payment.
So What’s Next?
To determine if a borrower qualifies for a mortgage modification, the borrower will need to submit a complete and accurate application – forms and documents tailored to the borrower and servicer that detail the borrower’s financial situation.
