Lawyers Call Modification Efforts a Failure An attorney trade group has released a report that calls the voluntary effort by U.S. mortgage servicers to modify loans a failure. The structure of loan securitizations, threat of litigation and lack of cooperation from junior lienholders are creating roadblocks. The group is calling for cramdown legislation and court-supervised modifications.

Ask for the evidence that they assited you in a mandatory borrower workout effort including presenting you with various options as an alternative to foreclosure. Also ask for them to repsond to a Qualified Written Request as mandated by HUD. The Written request should emphasize the need for evidencing the live promissiory note and not existing agreements amongst the lender parties giving rise to conflict over the loans delinquent status. Ask who is the holder in due course and permission to contact that party.

While it is true they are suposed to notify you, that does not mean they won't foreclose on you anyway. I don't believe they would purposely foreclose on you if they had not, but for a clerical error, which does happen. Not because they are nice but because of the legal implications. I agree with the people here that you need to be proactive and continue to communicate with them. Even though they don't make it easy. That's why you should document any and all communication as well. Also note that the servicer and lender, or actually investor are usually two different entities. Send multiple "QWR" letters via fax, email and registered mail, telling them that you believe there may be violations in the origination and servicing of your loan and you would like a copy of your loan file, deed of trust, including any assignments, servicing agreements, including copies of original notes, mortgage documents and any BPO's (Broker's Price Opinions) they may have done. This is sort of like a pre-discovery and from this information you can hire a professional to do a forensic loan file audit for you. If the violations are substantial enough you will get what you want. If there are only minor, as in most cases, they can still be used to negotiate a much better situation than thye would first be willing to offer.

Do you have a sale date yet? Are you working? Do you owe more on your home than it's worth? The answers to these questions will determin what strategy you should take. Which should be a proactive and assertive action.

I hope this information was helpful. For more check out or my site

Again this is in answer a Real Estate Pro who is naive about Saxon Mortage. Yes, they are overloaded, hence no comunication from them, but they also lie. My daughter asked about having a mortage modification and was told not to send in any more payments because he would get a lower monthly payment. Well months later when she finally got an answer her monthly payments were more than before. She also received an Act 91 which would have helped her but when she called Saxon they told her they never heard of an Act 91 and for her to ignore it. My daughter hired a lawyer but that has not helped either. Saxon just keeps upping the monthly payment and the lawyer does not understand some the added fees from Saxon. He has written to Saxon but has not received an answer. Please go to the web site address I have attached below to find some more horror stories about Saxon.

I do quite a bit of Home rentention work and one of the clients is Saxon. In my opinion they are trying to catch up and are completly overloaded with amount of work they have. From experience I know that you will not get an answer over the phone or in a very timely period, but the goverment is giving these institutions a lot of incentives to avoid foreclosures.

I think even if you get a workout from any lender the terms are going to favor the lender first,( they have all the leverage). Loan modification companies can level the playing field for you.

My answer is more for the all the real estate pros that answered you. I am sure that they have not called Saxon Mortage or they would know that you cannot talk to them. They don't answer your calls and if they do they claim they don't have any of the information that you faxed them.

Long story short my daughter is going through a foreclosurer with them. She is trying to sell her house on a short sale. Her real estate agent works with foreclusurer houses. There is an offer on the house and the real estate agent is trying to work with Saxon but they keep saying they don't have any of the information she sent them., she keeps calling them everyday. The real estate agent asked my daughter what is the matter with the people at Saxon, are they a bunch of idiots? My daughter said they are either iditots or con artists. Check out the web site address I am attaching to this answer and you will see what kind of people at the mortage company really are. If you do any search on the internet for Saxon Mortage you will find many, many complaints about Saxon Mortage.

Sorry for your situation.
You need to get on the phone with them immediately and do a workout.
Show them you can pay monthly and on time from this point forward.
Show them what changed.
Likely missing one letter or notification won't change things if you have been posted.
You still have a little time to work it out.

I have heard a lot of horror stories out of this servicer.
You need to contact the lender and do a workout plan. Do not duck their calls and only agree to what you are SURE you can stick to!!
