Asked 01/12/2009 01:34 pm CT (Griffin, GA)

Hello, I originally had my mortgage through Homebanc and then it was sold to Chase. My original mortgage payment was $1259 per month. Due to a miscalculation in taxes my mortgage payment was increased to $1457.10. Chase told me that my mortgage payment would go back down after 1 year. Unfortunately my mortgage was sold to American Home Mortgage Servicing Inc. It has been over 1 year since my payment went up so I called AHMSI to find out why my payment has not gone back down and they said I am paying the absolute minimum. Is there anything I can do to get my payment back down to what it was when I first bought the house? --Mike Sciacca

I bought a house with a friend out of college 4 years ago. Since then we have refinanced the 2nd Mortgage under just his name due to credit score reasons at the time. I recently got married and we were able to get the 1st mortgage in both me and my wife's name, however, the 2nd mortgage carrier wouldn't allow me and my wife to "assume" the 2nd mortgage from my friend and release his name entirely. So we now have a 1st mortgage with me and my wife's name on it, and a 2nd mortgage with just my friend's name on it. The question is: My friend now wants to move out, and we owe more than what the house is worth. Me and the wife plan on staying in the house, but due to a recent drop in pay we are unable to afford the 2nd mortgage that my friend currently pays. My friend has talked about just walking away because there is no reason for him to stay, and he doesn't care that it will affect his credit significantly. I'm assuming this will also affect me and my wife if he walks, but how? Does the 2nd Mortgage carrier then file for foreclosure and being we owe more on the house than it is worth would the 2nd mortgage carrier still buy out the first mortgage carrier and foreclose entirely? Should I have my friend try to negotiate with the 2nd mortgage carrier to lower the amount of $$$ owed? What do you suggest we do? Thank you!

My son's wife moved out of their house a few months ago. She took care of all bill payments. Now he finds out that she did not make the second mortgage payment for a very long time and they will no longer accept a monthly payment. He is working two jobs just to pay the monthly bills and has two children with him. He tried to draw out his 401K to pay on the second mortgage but was not able to get more than $1200 from the fund. His first mortgage is fine. What can he do about this situation? Can the second mortage company foreclose on his house? Thank you for your reply.

My husband and I are currently renting a two bedroom house, but 4 months ago we had our second child so we are now looking to BUY our first house. I have poor credit and my husband has no credit. We are current on all of our bills and my husband just got a new job 3 months ago. My husbands take home pay is about $3200.00-$4000.00 per month. I get paid an hourly wage, but also make commission which makes it so i can't prove my income but I bring home about $1200.00-$1600.00 per month. My husband did have a judgement against him because someone didn't pay a bill they were suppose to pay- but we are now paying it. We need to move to make room for our family.

First I must say that you do not have the city I live in on your list so I just picked one. Anyway here is my situation. I need to refinance my home to lower my payment, repair my roof and lower my interest rate and I have done everything that I have been asked to do. I have a manufactured home and land appraised at 75,000. My credit is good and I actually pass FHA inspection and have released the title to my home. The only problem I run into is there is no properties such as mine that have sold in the past two years. Now I do live in the smallest county in PA we only have 5300 people and sales are a little slower. There are a lot of manufactured homes being purchased as they are affordable for folks but no one is selling. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do. I am struggling to maintain my house payment the way it is and am afraid I will have to let it go back. The current lender will not consider refinancing the loan. Do you have any suggestions?

My father-in-law died 2 1/2 years ago. He was a widower. There may or may not have been a will... a mystery. The payments have been kept current but my in-laws have never notified the mortgage company. Their credit scores are horrible at best. What could happen if they can't qualify for a loan? What happens about the last 2 1/2 years will there be a penalty if the did qualify? What should their first step be?

Hi! I am new to the whole mortage game.. My Husband And I are trying to purchase our first home. We are very low income, however we have the ability to put down at least $20,000. He has had steady employment history for the past 2 years but he has ABSOLUTELY No credit history. I have gathered four sources of alternative payment history for a 12mo. period with no late fees (entergy bill, car insurance, phone, and a hospital insurance policy on our oldest son) I was employed with the same company for over two years but have been unemployed since I left the clinic I worked in to stay at home with our premature newborn..whom is now 8 mo.'s old. I have credit, however it is very low at this time due to the last statement mentioned. I am in the process of paying all my debts off. My mid score is 520 at the time :( We applied for an FHA Loan and an Urban Development but we where turned down due to my husbands change in employment (although it was for the better monetary wise) and for no savings are proof of alternative payment. My Husbands monthly income is $1920.00. Our only monthly bill is 250 for car insurance and 263.15 for 7 more months for our eldest sons tuition. The home we are trying to purchase is $129,900.00 with seller to pay $4,000.00 in closing costs. ANY advice etc. would be greatly appreciated.

This one is bad ... at least for me. We have several mortgages on the house we're living in. The house was purchased on a 80/20 with zero down at the peak of the market for $670K. The first is $540K, the second is $130K. Shortly after that we got an equity line from Bank of America for $210K to start landscaping at what not. At that time the house appraised for nearly $900K. Being adjustable the payment went OUT OF SIGHT last November. I stupidly figured as a stop gap I could borrow against the HELOC to make the payment. Well the rest is history ... although the payment which adjusted first in November (OUT OF SIGHT) came back to more normality in May (the next adjust is November 08). Now the HELOC has been shut off by Bank of America (at about $180K) and we are $3K short per month. I think I'm out of options as I've been pulling a rabbit out the hat for months. What should I do?? I'm considering not paying Bank of America and second for a period to keep us a float. Calling them (various lenders) to see if they'll work some type of solution. Praying for salvation ... etc. In this mix I actually have another home which is not upside down. Which we are renting out (with a payment we can afford). I'm guessing the various lenders can't touch that home ... so we're considering evicting the tenants, stopping paying the others and moving back there. Any pointers or insights you could provide would be helpfull. I can't pull money from anywhere and am down to the point where we'd be Bankrupt if I made the next months payments (read broke). I also owe $11K in tax on the problem home. I didn't pay that to enable myself to meet the mortgage for a 3 extra months. Thanks in advance.

I have a loan I refinanced. The interest rate jumped from 6.875 to 7.875 on day of closing. My broker's name was 'HLFS' who recieved $4k. My loan package contained a lock doc saying 'First Horizon Home Loans' was a broker with 1.000 at 6.785. First Horizon was the lender. Three questions: Did First Horizon take a 'base' commission in addition to HLFS? Did HLFS get a YSP in addition to $4k? Is there a base commission at 1.000? AND ... Are there any HONEST brokers out there????????????????????????????? I need to refinance.

My husband and I are first time home buyers in search of someone who is willing to give us a chance. We have had problems in the past with bills ETC, but currently we have been very faithly in keeping all of our current bills paid on a timely manner. Combine we have a gross income of about $66,000 annually, and we have not been able to find some one who will assits us in purchasing our first home. My credit score right now is 560 and my husbands is about 570, my husband does have a judgement that was filed against him last year for about $3200 dollars that we have been making monthly payments of $100 dollars for the past 7 months on. We are only looking to be approved for a loan in the amount of $160,000. Please contact me and let me know if there is anything that you can do to assist us, I am even willing to apply on my own even if it means a lower mortgage approval.

Hi, I am currently taking the classes for down payment assistance SHIP. At the first meeting we had, the instructor said we had to include all incomes in the house. I currently live by myself, but after I purchase my home ( I am the only one going to be buying the home), my boyfriend is going to be moving in with me. Do I have to disclose this information? Will the program require me to include his income?
