Our troubles began when we tried to repair problems caused by an earthquake a few years ago
Irvine, CA (Vocus) September 8, 2009
By the time John and Patricia Gallup of Redlands, CA, realized that their loan was going to adjust to unaffordable levels, the couple was in no position to help themselves. John was disabled almost 20 years ago from job-related issues and Patricia went on disability just two years ago. Living on a fixed income of $1,800 per month, the couple simply could not afford the $1,500 payment. They called the United Law Group of Irvine, CA to help. Seven months later the firm successfully negotiated a payment reduction that would save them $1,059.53 per month and prevented the disabled couple from becoming homeless.
"Our troubles began when we tried to repair problems caused by an earthquake a few years ago," said Patricia. "We had contractor issues and had to hire someone else which took more money. We ended up refinancing into one of those bad loans."
United Law Group contacted Wachovia Bank. It took seven months of diligent follow through to meet the lender's requirement for documentation in order to secure the loan modification. United Law Group is the leading provider of legal foreclosure prevention and foreclosure litigation services. The firm pursues every available legal channel when helping families, like the Gallups, who have been victimized by predatory banking practices and the subsequent housing meltdown.
"We can't thank United Law Group enough for the assistance they have given us," said Patricia. "With the assistance of United Law Group, our loan’s been modified from a $209,900 balance to a $175,000 balance. We feel blessed that they cared enough to represent us (…) and that we now have a home to live in, and are moving forward in our lives. I just hope that other people understand that no matter how bad things seem, there are options and there is hope."
"Without this modification the Gallups would have lost John's childhood home," said Robert Buscho, Senior Litigation Attorney for United Law Group. "Their circumstances made them a prime target for predatory lending practices. United Law Group is proud to help people, like the Gallups, to find solutions to their financial hardships."
