Helpful Hints for Foreclosure Mediations
Last week a participated in a Foreclosure Mediation the did not go well. The Borrower showed up late to the mediation, was wearing "beach attire" and the document package that had been submitted to the bank was over a year old & was incomplete.
To top off the meeting, the borrower got angry at the attorneys and decided to threaten them as he left the office. This mediation was "less than successful".
Want to have a good meeting with the bank? Start Here:
1.) Make sure the document package that you submitted to the bank was received & is complete at least 1 month beforethe mediation.
2.) Put your Loan number & date on each page. (Except for the IRS 4507-T).
3.) Approach the meeting as if you were applying for a new mortgage - clean up your credit & debts. Bring a recent P&L, set of Bank Statements, Pay Roll Stubs & Tax Returns with you to the mediation.
4.) Dress for Success.
5.) If you spoke with someone at the bank, make notes including their Name, Phone Number and Extension.
6.) Most banks have a Home Retention Department - call them 2 weeks beforethe mediation and ask: "Is there any additional things I must do before the mediation?"
