Filing for a Kentucky mortgage modification program requires certain documents. To help you along, we’ve gathered this common list of mortgage modification documents. There are standard forms that are a part of every mortgage modification. For your convenience, the list items below also contain links to those standard forms.

Common Documents for Kentucky Mortgage Modification Programs

First, you must understand that the primary reason for 90% of modifications receiving a denial is because the debtors fail to complete them accurately. Secondly, during this process, it is common for offices to “lose applications.” Therefore, you must keep records. Additionally, if you choose to sue the bank back or file bankruptcy and want to consider a mortgage modification, the application often goes through a special paralegal at the office of the attorney for the bank.

These are the document they are most likely to expect from you. This is especially true with CitiMortgage. However, you must be aware that every lender has different rules.
