I have previously posted on this Blog information about homeowner mortgage benefits in the initial bailout bill that was rejected by the House on September 29, 2008. I have reviewed the final, revised bill signed into law on October 3, 2008. The final bill contains essentially the same mortgage modification provisions. The bill directs the Treasury to encourage mortgage service companies to mitigate foreclosure by adjusting the interest rate, payment terms, as well as the mortgage balance of certain home mortgages. The law is written generally and without details. The Treasury Department likely will issue federal regulations which state whom is entitled to benefits and the procedures to request mortgage modification.
