This compared with 4.4 percent for Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans, 2.5 percent for Veterans Affairs (VA) loans, and 3.1 percent for all loans (Industry average). Of these actions, 3,087,014 have helped troubled homeowners stay in their homes including 1,962,599 permanent loan modifications.Broken down further, Home Retention Actions totaled 83,847 year-to-date, with the repayment plans totaling 16,033 and forbearance plans numbering 3,520. Charge-offs-in-lieu totaled 521. On the Nonforeclosure-Home Forfeiture Actions side, the total year-to-date was 14,202, with short sales coming out to 9,554 and deeds-in-lieu totaling 4,648.Modifications with extend-term only accounted for 47 percent of all loan modifications in the first quarter due to improved house prices and a declining HAMP eligible population. As of June 30, 2016, approximately 20 percent of loans modified in the second quarter of 2015 had missed two or more payments, one year after modification.A total of 1,078,719 troubled homeowners have been offered a HAMP trial modification since the program started in April 2009 and 653,893 of these homeowners have been granted permanent modifications through HAMP. A total of 2,961 homeowners were in a HAMP trial modification period at the end of the second quarter, but this number is a reflection of 1,078,719 modifications started in Q2 minus the number of trials disqualified (78,719) and the number of trials cancelled (343,146). This number also reflects the subtraction of those trials turned into permanent modifications that numbered 653,893.Non-HAMP modifications accounted for 93 percent of all permanent loan modifications in the second quarter. A total of 29,668 homeowners received permanent loan modifications through the Enterprises’ proprietary modification programs in the second quarter, bringing the total number of non-HAMP permanent modifications to 1,212,208 since April 2009. 2016-09-28 Kendall Baer in Daily Dose, Featured, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.

LIPA Legal Counsel Joins G. Kru Senatorial Race

first_imgA Legal Counsel staff in the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA), Atty. Patrice PokarWeah, has described himself as a “very possible candidate” to replace retired Grand Kru County Senator Cletus S. Wortoson in the upcoming Special Senatorial Elections in October-2014.The Movement for Progressive Change (MPC) candidate told journalists on Tuesday that he is positive of his election owing to his prominence amongst the youth for his inelastic advocacy role over the years.Atty. Weah in a cheered tone said he believes that he would also be voted based on his capacity as an Attorney-at-Law to replace the aged politician and geologist (Cletus Wotorson) to merge with the Doctor (Senator Dr. Peter Coleman) to promote and develop the County.Senator Wotorson, 77 years old, has announced his retirement from politics after serving over 40 years in public offices ranging from Director of Liberian Geological Survey, Minister of Lands, Mines and Energy, Chairman of the Liberian Petroleum Refinery Company, Senator of Grand Kru County and President Pro Tempt of the Liberian Senate.The LIPA legal man also told journalists that reason necessitating his ambition for the senatorial race is to fill the leadership vacuum in order to promote Grand Kru County Development Agenda.“I am sure of my election and will certainly reinvent the wheel of the Grand Kru County Development Agenda for our County to be on par with other counties like Sinoe, Grand Bassa and Nimba,” he said. “Howbeit, education would be my priority.”Meanwhile, Atty. Weah has urged people of the county to deviate from tribal politics in county.“We have 12 traditional groups and let’s see ourselves as one people and stop the kru and grebo sentiment, because if we thread that path we will put county in trouble,” Atty. Weah said. “Let’s go to the ballot box without tribal politics but using our capability and the developmental issues,” he concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
