Loan Modification – Was your credit score negatively effected when you did a loan modification?

Deal Score0

Please, I ONLY WANT TO HEAR FROM PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DID A LOAN MODIFICATION AND WAS CURRENT ON THEIR LOAN WHILE DOING A LOAN MODIFICATION AGREEMENT. Hello, I have a friend who has been offered a loan modification from her bank. She is current on her mortgage and have a good credit score but is struggling to make payments. She has read on the internet the horror stories of peoples credit score plummeting by 100 points after doing a loan modification. She asked the bank will it affect her credit score and they said no, of course right. Want to hear from people have have done a lone modification. Some people state that if you do a loan modification they will report it on your credit as current but a loan modification has taken place and that once a loan modification is on your credit – it is a bad sign because you were not able to stick with the original terms of the loan.

    I used to underwrite loans for a bank who modified loans under their own portfolio. The short answer is of course it will effect her credit. Regardless if she was current & paying on time prior to the modification, when you modify your changing the original agreed upon Note & agreement that she signed. BUUUUUT it depends on what type of mod she get’s. If it only effects the term, where they extend the term out then the bank & investor is still getting the rate charged & the only thing making the payment smaller is the term being extended. But if the bank has to decrease the rate or forgive principal then bank & investor are both losing out big time & of course they’re not going to let that go without some consequence.

    Well i think if she is having a hard time keep up on the payments and really needs a loan modification to keep the house.
    Then doing the modification will be better for her credit score than losing the house due to non payment.
