Hardship Letter is One of the Most Important Documents in Loan Modification and Short Sale Processing

Borrowers who are considering a short sale of their property or doing a loan modification must be prepared to provide the lender with a hardship letter. This letter describes the financial distress which the Borrower is undergoing. Along with the financial information such as tax returns, personal financial statements, cash flow worksheets, etc., the hardship letter paints a very good picture of the Borrower's situation that the tax returns and other hard numbers may not convey.

A hardship letter should not be longer than one page. It can be, but it is better to present your case clearly and concisely in three to four paragraphs at the most. Make

Autumn in the Ogden Valley is amazing. The shadows are so defined, the light is amazing, the color show seems to go on and on.

Do banks commit fraud? Do they steer appraisals? They do.

There is so much talk about how borrowers have defrauded the system and manipulated appraisals. Which I have no doubt they have but I represent several distressed borrowers trying to work out short sales and the lack of integrity on the part of some banks (not all of them) is astounding.

The Foreclosure
