Better Business Bureau Talks Bill Consolidation, Debt Negotiation and Debt Elimination Programs

Author: admin - Categories: Consumer Debt News, Published Debt Relief Articles - Tags: , ,

Consumers continue to get hammered by debt settlement and loan modification offers from lending companies to help get them out of debt.  When times are tough, these financial offers look appealing, but are they really the best for you?

Consider offers of debt negotiation, debt settlement, and debt elimination are three different options available to most consumers. The Better Business Bureau advises consumers to ensure they understand these critical differences before enlisting the help of a company to manage their debt or they could end up making their current financial situation worse.

The unemployment rate in the United States rose from 7.2 to 7.6 % in January according to the U.S. Department of Labor and more families are struggling to make ends meet. While the unemployment rate continues to rise, so do complaints filed with BBB against companies that claim to help consumers manage their debt. In fact complaints against debt consolidation and negotiation companies rose by almost 19 % in 2008 over the previous year.

“Consumers are bombarded every day with ads and e-mails offering services to manage or reduce debt and it’s hard to know which offer will work for them, let alone if the company can be trusted,” said Kathy Barrett, President. “Families in debt may think their situation can’t get any worse, but trusting the services of some debt negotiation, consolidation or elimination firms can actually lead to increased debt and bigger headaches.” Article was submitted by Tammy Dankovich.

Mortgage Modification Affect Credit Reports

Maintaing affordable home loans with mortgage modification plans remains a cornerstone of the Obama administration’s housing relief programs for distressed homeowners. Obama’s mortgage relief team allocated $75 billion for an initiative that would reward loan servicing companies for reducing mortgage payments for five years, after which they would rise to today’s current mortgage interest rates which,  remain in the glorious 5% range.  How long will that last? Nobody really knows…

By now, most homeowners understand that a foreclosure judgment is a “significant ding” that will reflect in the credit score and perception of manual underwriting for many years to come. Being delinquent on your home mortgage payments is a serious issue, but if you or your loss mitigation company are already negotiating with your lender, it certainly doesn’t hurt to attempt to get the lender to remove the delinquencies. It’s amazing how powerful a letter from the creditor says that they “made an error in reporting.” But several readers recently wrote to Lisa Sitkin, in an effort to get clarification on the impact of loan modification and the long standing credit implications. If the lender doesn’t agree, consider credit repair.

Borrowers should also request that prior past-due derogatory comments on the credit reports be changed to reflect new current status after the mortgage loan modification. Read more at Credit Hit from Wave of Loan Modifications?
