“Dear Steve,

WE are in a house that has no equity. We owe 40,000 more than our house is worth. We are making our payments every month. We barley make it every month.

The Answer

 

Dear Lindsey,

Credit counselors have a special phrase for this situation, “you’re screwed.”

While you might not want to give up your house, even with a short sale, the prognosis for keeping it is not good.

I think you’ll have to come to terms with the situation and sell the house with a short sale or face an almost certain foreclosure in the next year.

Letting go is often the hardest thing to do. You search and search for options but sometimes there just are not any to be had.

No lender is required to modify a mortgage and yours might be especially hard since no specific underlying investor exists or can be located to agree to it.

Big Hug!

    The banks can say anything they want, because they are not forced to play by the rules. Petition Congress to regulate the loan modification process:
