California Loan Modification Companies May Soon Become a Thing of the Past

Posted on April 24, 2009
If a group of consumer-minded California State Senators get their way, loan modification companies may soon find themselves out of business or scratching their heads as they consider how to successfully adjust their revenue model. California Senate Bill 94 (SB 94), which looks like it might be days away from being passed by the full California State Senate, would prohibit the charging of advance fees to homeowners in connection with a loan modification, and require anyone who wishes to charge a fee for loan modification services (after performing them) to provide a state mandated notice beforehand regarding the availability of non-fee options for the borrower...

According to the U.S. Foreclosure Market Report for the first quarter of 2009, foreclosure filings ? default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions ? were reported on 803,489 properties, which sadly translates into a 9 percent increase from the previous quarter and an increase of nearly 24 percent from the same period in 2008...
