Customer Question
I am 71 and past...
I am 71 and past tyears recovering from blood clots in my lungs
I am behind about 4 months in mortauge payments
My home is in foreclouser,The Loan is from Countrywide/Bank Of America
Forclouser date is March 31,2011
I am trying to get a loan modification with B of A so I can keep my home.
I have been approached by Gordon & Associates to help modify my loan the cost to me would be $3500 for this:
1. They say that they will send a demand letter to B of A Legal dept direct regarding a new settlement 2. Create a Legal Memorandum focusing on predatory lending violations 3. Form a Lawsuite & monetary damages against the lender. 4.Get cash setelments for harassment & emotional Stress. 5. Review loan for frauds or inflated on the value.
Is this worth spending my limited funds for or COULD I DO THIS MYSELF AND SAVE THE $3500?

Thank You

Thank you for your question.

That seems a little steep for the services offered. You certainly should be able to speak to the bank yourself to attempt to modify the loan.

If Bank of America refuses to re-negotiate, and you feel it's in bad faith, you can use the consumer protection statute in Oregon to bring them to the table. Unfair and deceptive trade practices (to include predatory lending and financial fraud) are enforced by the state's attorney general. That website is here.

I will be happy to follow up with you if you have additional questions. In the meantime, please click ACCEPT so that I can get credit for answering your question.

Thanks!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
