What is a Forensic Loan Audit:
A forensic loan audit is a process that breaks down and analyzes a set of loan documents to determine if all parties completed proper procedures and complied with regulations during the origination of the loan.
Today, the forensic loan audit represents a powerful tool to help clean up the mess left behind by the mortgage meltdown, as well as to safeguard against a future disaster. Here’s how.
With courts recently gaining power to demand loan modifications in some instances, forensic loan audits likely will change how the lending business operates. The system will be more tightly regulated and focused on loan quality, rather than loan quantity. Lenders will seek brokers who consistently produce loans that perform.
In turn, forensic loan audits could make it easier for lenders to highlight lending patterns connected to a single broker. They also could help brokers improve their own work and build a reputation based on quality.
As the use of forensic loan audits becomes more widespread, mortgage brokers must know what a forensic loan audit is and how it can be used.
What we use your forensic loan audit for… Principal Reduction – When a property is upside down and the homeowner is facing foreclosure, the homeowner has more leverage than they may realize against their lender. Our service can force that leverage upon that lender. In doing so, you can be successful in wiping out large portions of principle. Typically 50-80%! Loan Modification – most major lenders and service providers will negotiate a loan modification where most of the delinquent payments and foreclosure fees are either wiped out or added onto the back end of the loan. In most cases the interest rate and payment will be reduced permanently. Homeowners need to prove what the maximum payment is that they can afford by constructing a financial plan that the lender will approve, and since the homeowner is often late with their payments and in foreclosure or soon to be in foreclosure, the lender must be asked to forgive the delinquent payments or put them on the back of the loan.
Interest Rate / Payment Rate Reduction – With the overwhelming increase of interest rates resetting on home loans and the devastating effect of this economy, many homeowners are faced with mortgage payments they can no longer afford. It is better to lower the homeowner’s payment by lowering the interest rate or payment rate by creating a payment plan the borrower can afford, than to take the home with a foreclosure sale and lose money on the re-sale. Keep in mind lenders lose money on bank owned properties as it will sell for less than market value, and they must pay a commission to a Realtor; and closing cost plus the cost of holding the property while they wait for a sale in a market that is depreciating.
