Revised Eligibility Timeline
Eligible borrowers who failed to qualify for a permanent HAMP modification but successfully completed ALL of the trial period plan payments before LL-2010-04 was issued on March 18, 2010, must be sent an Alt Mod™ offer no later than June 18, 2010. Borrowers who are unable to submit ALL non-capitalized post-trial period payments will not be eligible for the Alt Mod™.
Timing of Borrower Solicitation and Follow Up
Borrowers who complete their trial period plan payments and who are determined to be ineligible for a permanent HAMP modification, but eligible for Alt Mod™, must be sent offers within 10 days of their completion of the HAMP trial period plan or within 10 days of the expiration of the 30-day HAMP Borrower Notice (Notice of Non-Approval).
Once the HAMP trial period has been completed, the service may send an Alt Mod™ Offer to an eligibility borrower subject to receipt of specified documentation, such as: first payment for the Alternative Modification; Hardship Affidavit (or similar document); any remaining documentation required to verify borrowers income; and, executed Loan Modification Agreement.
Servicer follow-ups, by mail and phone, are required for borrowers who do not respond to the Alt Mod™ offer in accordance with specified follow-up timelines.
Mortgage Insurer Approval
Until Fannie Mae obtains a delegated authority agreement from a mortgage insurer on behalf of all servicers, the servicer must obtain approval through either their delegations from each mortgage insurer or, if not available, on a case-by-case basis.
Borrowers Ineligible for Alt Mod™
Borrowers who are not eligible for Alt Mod™ may not be considered for any other permanent modification without the prior written consent of Fannie Mae. Instead, the servicer must attempt to structure a repayment plan to bring the mortgage loan current within 12 months or proceed with foreclosure prevention alternatives or, if necessary, foreclosure.
