Ian Halpin answered:
Typically what this means is that the borrower pays down some of the principal and the lender them re amortizes the balance hence lowering the monthly payments. I believe it's only done with fixed rate loans but depending on your lender anything is possible. I think it is not allowed on FHA loans. Personally I have never had a client do this. A refi is obviously more common if the loan qualifies.
I hope this helps. You should talk to a qualified mortgage broker to get very specific answers to all your questions.

Best of luck.

Yes it would, however, to be safe scraping all the paint off is best... The reason FHA won't allow chip paint is the potential for lead poisoning.. Hope this helps!

You need to ask your lender!!!!! Who is paying for all of this? I hope not you because the deal may not work out and you would be out the money.

Hi Donna,

You aren't asking anyone in particular on this thread. If you found a particular property you are interested in, go back to the listing and click the orange "Contact Property" button to ask the property lister directly.

Hope that helps clear things up!

Tony Mitidiero answered:
The short answer is yes. It was charged off because it was second position on the title, so they had no ability to foreclose and the bank had to do something with the bad debt.

You may or may not be in the clear of the debt. A good title search will allow you to see what is currently recorded against the property.

Please feel free to contact me for a more specific answer.

I hope this was helpful,

Tony Mitidiero

Ron Thomas answered:
We have heard this senario hundreds, maybe thousands, of times in the last few years:
If the Bank says it will 2 months; it probably will be 5 months. I have seen a year!
Up to you: If you are patient and really, really want the house; then be patient.
If you will kick yourself for waiting for nothing, and miss out on the deals the next few months; then walk away.
Waiting for the Trustee Sale is not much better; it will 3-5 months until that is Listed too.
There are a lot of houses out there, maybe a better home and deal will reveal itself.
