Debt-To-Income (DTI) Limits

But the HAMP Tier 2 guidelines will also take into consideration different types of debts such as second mortgages, medical bills, credit card dues, etc. while assessing overall financial situation of the applicant.

As per HAMP 2 rules and regulations, home loan modifications granted must be able to reduce the borrower’s monthly mortgage payments by minimum 10%.

The Home Affordable Modification Tier 2 Program – A Brief Overview
Here’s How It Differs From the HAMP Tier 1
- Program has been extended to December 31, 2013.
- With HAMP Tier 1 only one modification was permitted but the Tier 2 plan permits up to 3 modifications at a time.
- Homeowners currently not residing but thinking of re-occupying their homes after getting displaced can qualify if they have occupied those homes previously.
- Under a new HAMP Tier 2 requirement servicers must consider borrowers for UP relief assistance if they have skewed monthly mortgage payment ratios.
- Even rental property owners will be eligible to receive financial help under the revised HAMP rules and regulations.
- Lenders will qualify borrowers even if they are reported delinquent on HAMP trial or permanent modification plan payments subject to some condition.
- HAMP Tier 1 prescribed a 31% Debt-To-Income ratio limit but its revamped version prescribes a DTI limit which is between 25% and 42%.
HAMP Tier 2 qualifications will make a borrower eligible for receiving government funds only if the modification provides minimum 10% reduction in payment of monthly installments. If this condition is not met, the applicant will not qualify for the revised plan.
