Bank of America: BAC Loan Servicing Imminent Default Terms. Do I need to be behind?

Frequently we get a lot of questions but none as much as the question, “Can I apply for assistance without being behind/delinquent?” Usually this is followed by the fact that they were told by everyone they know that they should stop making payments if they want to find any assistance. We are huge believers that this is one of the myths that plagues the business. Below is an e-mail that we received from the lender themselves:

Please send all your inquiries/questions/responses  directly to (REMOVED)@bankofamerica.com for proper handling.

Please DO NOT reply to me directly or send me any emails as they WILL NOT be responded.

Thank you for your modification request. Due to the delinquency status of the file we have closed our record. Our
Imminent Default Unit would be able to further assist you with your request.

All current loans (0 – 59 days due) due for the current month payment or one in the future are required to

complete an imminent default checklist. Please call our Imminent Default Unit at 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX and advise the

associate that you are calling and need to complete the imminent default checklist review as you are requesting a

modification on a current loan.

Provided is the check list that you can read through in an effort to be prepared when you call.

The homeowner MUST be able to answer EVERY question as YES to be eligible. Any questions answered “NO”

will automatically disqualify the loan for a possible modification.
