NACA Founder and CEO Bruce Marks while taking a break from the Richmond Event talks to President Obama at his campaign kick off rally in Richmond,VA regarding the issues that struggling homeowners with government backed loans are facing and how his administration needs to work harder on fixing FHA.
Dear FHA Borrower,
If you have not obtained an affordable solution with your FHA mortgage, this message is very important. While NACA has been extremely successful modifying mortgages, FHA mortgages have been the most difficult. Thus we need to take action and ask President Obama why he is failing homeowners who have a government-backed FHA mortgage.
While the best solution for a FHA borrower is the FHA-HAMP solution, FHA makes it extremely difficult to obtain this solution. This solution reduces the outstanding principal by up to 30%, reduces the interest rate to the current market rate which is about 4% (the reduced principal must be repaid at the end of the loan term), and extends the loan term to 30 years. While this solution is not as good as ones provided by other lenders, where interest rates are reduced to as low as 2% and a portion of the outstanding principal eliminated, FHA-HAMP is the best option available at this time.
We need you to take action NOW if you have not yet received an affordable solution by doing the following:
1. Call the FHA National Servicing Center (“NSC”) at 877-622-8525 to file a complaint. They are responsible for assisting FHA borrowers who have had difficulty working with their lender. Please do the following:
a. Provide the NSC with your FHA case number. Get your case number from your lender, FHA case number can be found in the top left corner of your HUD 1 settlement statement received at closing or NACA (contact NACA at FHA@naca.com).
b. Insist on filing a complaint. Do not take no for an answer.
c. Request a FHA-HAMP solution (i.e. reduce your principal by up to 30% and reduce your interest rate)
d. Tell the NSC you are working with NACA.
e. If you are denied an affordable solution by FHA, obtain the reason and provide that to NACA at FHA@naca.com
2. If you are not satisfied with the NSC response, please take the following action.
a. Contact FHA Commissioner Carol Galante. Commissioner Galante needs to understand what you are going through. You can contact her by emailing her at Carol.J.Galante@HUD.com or by call her office at 202-708-2495.
3. Keep NACA informed by sending email updates to FHA@naca.com. We have staff dedicated to working with FHA borrowers. Tell us your current circumstances that make your current mortgage payment unaffordable including:
a. Reason for your difficulties (i.e. reduced income, unaffordable mortgage terms, etc.)
b. Number of months late or if you are current.
c. Your experience with your lender as well as FHA.
d. Are you willing to participate in actions and activities against FHA. These include demonstrations, meeting with Members of Congress, holding President Obama accountable (i.e. at his campaign appearances), and other actions?
NACA will continue to be your advocate. While FHA has not been responsive to our efforts to work with them, we will not take no as an answer and neither should you. We are working with tens of thousands FHA borrowers as well as hundreds of thousands of other homeowners who we can involve in activities to make FHA work for its borrowers. It is outrageous that FHA, as the Obama Administration’s major government housing program, is one of the worst in helping homeowners save their homes. We need to tell President Obama to standup for homeowners and to set the standard with FHA borrowers.
NACA – CEO
We have enclosed a video of NACA’s founder and CEO getting arrested advocating for Chase homeowners at the Senate Banking Committee. Click here to view this story which is sweeping through the internet. Also to view the prior video of Dave Lowman, Chase’s CEO for Home Retention, telling homeowner’s having difficulties to “Come to Me”. Click here for the video showing him lying to Congress and homeowners.
NACA will continue to fight for all homeowners. As in all of our previous actions we have important friends, including the police who let us off without being charged. They also provide us access to the gated communities where these CEOs live in the lap of luxury. These police and security guards are like millions of homeowners who are either at risk of foreclosure or know someone very close to them who is in danger of losing their home. Everyone is frustrated and angry at the lenders. We will continue the fight and continue to confront Chase and others, wherever they go and where they live, who get in the way of homeowners achieving a long-term affordable mortgage payment.
We are working with the lenders to have a proposal or follow-up for every homeowner prior to the end of the year. Please continue to access your Web-file for updates by clicking here. We are determined to get this done for everyone who is committed to staying in their homes. We want to express our sincere thanks to the hundreds of homeowners who, with very little advance notice attended the Senate hearing. Your presence sent a very strong message.
NACA is the most effective organization advocating for hundreds of thousands of homeowners. NACA is able to save hundreds and sometimes over a thousand dollars a month through NACA’s legally binding agreements with all the major lenders and investors. We will keep up the fight and look forward to your active participation.
P.S. NACA is engaged in a campaign against Chase called “Chasing Chase”. Click here for details on the campaign.
