Loss Mitigation

Our staff works hand-in-hand with our clients, investors and guarantors to aggressively identify and pursue loss mitigation opportunities and resolution. We understand the importance of helping borrowers remain in their homes and helping clients find opportunities to transform previously non-performing loans to performing assets. Our efforts will typically include, but are not limited to, solicitation, review and analysis, pursuit of repayment plans, special forbearance agreements, pre-claims, loan modifications, refinancing programs, short payoffs, deed-in-lieu, cash-for-keys, temporary indulgence and other client/investor/MI company/agency workout alternatives. Our goal is to protect our clients’ rights by assisting the  borrowers experiencing short- and long-term hardships to remain in their homes and/or resolve the default as quickly as possible in accordance with the desires and needs of the borrower(s), client, investor, mortgage insurance companies, and agencies.
