To California Homeowners
If you cannot afford your monthly mortgage payments and wish to avoid foreclosure, you may be eligible for a loan workout or modification. We determine eligibility for loan workouts on a case-by-case basis. Among other things, we will consider the value of your property and your ability (based on your current income) to make monthly mortgage payments in accordance with the workout. You may also qualify to refinance your current loan with us. If you are interested in exploring any of the options listed above, you will need to provide us with certain financial information, including the following: your most recent pay stub, list of current monthly expenses, your most recent tax return, bank statements, a current valuation of your property, if available (such as an appraisal). If you would like to discuss your options to avoiding foreclosure with us, please call the Loan Servicing Department of Bank of Hope at (866) 972-2265. You may also contact the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to find a HUD-certified housing counseling agency by calling (800) 569-4287. Additional information is made available by HUD on its website at www.hud.gov.
