Countrywide Bank Loan Modification for Troubled Home Owners

Bank of America, which acquired Countrywide in July, said that nearly 400,000 troubled homeowners who have subprime mortgages and option adjustable-rate loans through Countrywide may be eligible for loan modifications. To be eligible for the Bank of America plan, homeowners must occupy the home as their primary residence; the mortgage must be seriously delinquent — or likely to become so; and the loan must have been serviced by Countrywide and originated prior to Dec. 31, 2007. Bank of America will help borrowers by restructuring first-year payments of principal, interest, taxes and insurance to no more than 34 percent of the borrower’s income; halting foreclosure sales against borrowers who are likely to qualify for a loan modification; and waiving restructuring fees and prepayment penalties.
