Join us Marc Dann & Bobby Rivera for “What to do: Post HAMP for Mortgage Borrower Clients.”

Thursday, March 16th 2017

The Federal Hamp Program has come to an end, but  most mortgage loan borrowers in default will be eligible for modifications to help them stay in their home. Furthermore, once a loan modification is accepted by a Mortgage Loan Servicer strict new RESPA regulations are in place to make sure that a servicer completes the review fairly and quickly while staying foreclosure activity.

Bobby Rivera, a nationally recognized expert in loan modifications will provided a brief overview to help lawyers understanding the importance of identifying investor, trends on proprietary programs and income calculations for modification and Marc Dann, who’s firm has prosecuted more than 100 cases under Regulation X to RESPA will talk about how to use the regulations to get the information you need to obtain critical information to oppose relief from stay, prosecute claim objections and to hold servicers feet to the fire by bringing Adversaries and Lawsuits which provide for fee shifting under Regulation X to RESPA.
