Question by mochachreme: Will a mortgage company refinance a loan currently in forebearance?
I’ve got a mortgage that is in a repayment status under a forebearance plan, but they want to modify the loan and put what I currently owe on the back of the loan. I want to know if another mortgage company will refinance me with the loan currently being behind (although payments have been made as agreed through the plan).
Thanks for your help!!!

Generally speaking, no they won’t. Right now, though you may be in luck. There is a big push by Congress and the industry in general to “fix” this whole fiasco of subprime mortgages going into default. You may be able to qualify for some help. Check with a few mortgage agencies and see what they say.
Do: get a fixed rate long term loan
Don’t: get anything balloon, ARM, or interest only.
Expect to have to suck up some of the losses by adding them into the loan. Either from your current lender or from someone else.
