Possible Solutions

Making Home Affordable
American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. (AHMSI) participates in the government sponsored Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and The Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA). 

Repayment Plan or Special Forbearance
American Home Mortgage Servicing Inc. may be able to arrange a plan based on your financial situation to spread out repayment of your past-due balance over an extended period of time.

Loan Modification
It may be possible to modify your mortgage contract to incorporate your past-due amounts and sometimes even reduce your monthly payment. This may be done by extending the loan term, lowering the interest rate or capitalizing past-due interest. However, this is a legal change to the terms of the loan and involves obtaining approval from the loan owner or investor.

  • The offer for the property is equal or less than the amount to payoff in full
  • Jr. Liens (i.e. 2nd mortgages) must be willing to have an open line of communication with customer on possible negotiation efforts.
  • The customer must be willing to allow AHMSI to evaluate the property’s interior to gain a proper value for the workout

Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure
As a last resort, you may be able to voluntarily “give back” your property to the lender. You won’t be able to stay in your home, but it is not as damaging to your credit rating as a foreclosure. This option is only available if there are no other liens or judgments on the property.

    (Small liens or judgments that may be negotiated to accept less may still qualify for a DIL.)

  • The customer must be willing to allow AHMSI to evaluate the property’s interior to gain a proper value for the workout
    **Note – The customer may provide their own appraisal if available
