Misconduct and the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP)
If you are employed and still unable to make your monthly mortgage payments, you may be able to modify your loan under the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). In some HAMP lawsuits, this modification can be helpful and allow the consumer to get his or her finances back on track.
In other cases, however, lenders have been taking advantage of unsuspecting borrowers. Deceptive or careless lenders may string a borrower along and wrongfully deny an application for a modification. The federal government is collecting $25 billion from major lenders, including Bank of America and Chase, for mortgage modification and foreclosure misconduct. This settlement is being divided among more than 1 million homeowners who were affected by the misconduct of the lenders.
