Yes. Just want to know if I can use the NEW HARP program in my situation. Paid $200K for house in 2007. Owe $150K at 6.35%. When tried to refiance 1 year ago all good until appraisel came in at $150K. Was not able to use HARP back then because of purchase date of my home and would have had to put huge down payment to reduce my rate. Will the new plan allow me to use HARP to reduce my rate to reduce monthly without large down payment?
Thanks for your timeNovember 11, 2011 at 11:22 pm #1683

What events would cause a person who is on the program to no longer be eligible to stay on the program?November 12, 2011 at 8:10 pm #1686
Our mortgage is thru USAA Bank. Is there any way for us to qualify for HARP or any other mortgage that will allow us to refinance our condo which is worth less than our current mortgage. We fulfill all other requirements.
Thank you for your help.November 15, 2011 at 1:23 pm #1687

The new HARP Guidelines are supposed to alleviate LTV requirements.November 15, 2011 at 4:39 pm #1690

Do I qualify?November 17, 2011 at 12:58 pm #1691
Under the new HARP Guidlines there is an unlimited loan-to-value (LTV) ratio. No matter how underwater you are, you can still apply. I am a Home Loan Specialist and I can give you more information and see if I can help you refinance under this program. There are specific qaulifications for HARP and I can check and see if you qaulify.November 17, 2011 at 2:32 pm #1692

I know that I qualify for HARP, and my current (as of five years) lender participates. I also had an extensive appraisal. (I haven’t signed any final documents yet.) My question is about fees. My lender is charging $6,750 to generate a $260,000 loan (this does not include other closing costs.) And since they currently own my mortgage, they are at no increased risk. I was told that in the new guidelines there was a change in the fee structure. Where can I get that information? Thanks.November 22, 2011 at 6:56 pm #1696

My loan was with Bank of America and they sold it to Green Tree. They suggest I go back to B of A to do the HARP but since they turned down my modification I prefer not to. Any suggestions?November 23, 2011 at 9:10 am #1697

Hope to qualify for New HARP program after 12 mos. and I’ve paid back default months. I’ve been in my home for 22 years, refinanced without clarity into a pick-a-pay mortgage stuck for 3 years prepay penalty. Lost money as int. rate rose to 9%, frantically, refinanced when losing equity in 2008. Signed Mortgage docs w/o notary, copies obtained from lender in ’09 revealed my signature forged. Principal $347,000 7/1 ARM 5 1/2 %
Value $266,000 Been trying to get bank to give me a new clean loan.
Tried HAMP and was denied. Defaulted for Short sale then New HARP.
