Loss Mitigation Document Review
A highly-trained Loss Mitigation Specialist will review all documentation provided by our customer or authorized third-party.
The Loss Mitigation Specialist will review all documents submitted and validate all documents have been returned.
The Loss Mitigation Specialist will notify you if any documents are missing.
Once they have determined all required documents have been received,
they will order the necessary property valuations and escrow analysis. This step typically takes 10-15 days to finalize.
Once all orders have been returned,
a specialized mortgage underwriter will review all relevant income and expense
documentation to determine the best workout option our borrowers qualify for;
either to assist in bringing their loan current while obtaining an affordable
payment or liquidating the property through a short sale or with a deed in lieu of foreclosure.
Once the best available workout options have been approved,
your Loss Mitigation Specialist will contact you by phone and by mail with all necessary details.
