You could try the Home Affordable Modification Program if a conventional loan does not work. FHA allows debt to income ratios up to 55% in some cases. Naturally their first call needs to be to their current lender to find out what type of loan they are in; Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, USDA, VA, Sub-prime etc. and see what they are willing to do. If their lender advises them to miss payments in order to qualify for a modification tell your customer not to do that.

If no reasonable modification or refinance will lower their payments enough, there is not a whole lot that can be done by an outside lender.

I noticed your subject line says, " taxes more than doubled." Did that happen in this case?
