Triple Play – How N.J. homeowners can avoid home loan modification scams

Maplewood, NJ – Bruce H. Levitt, Managing Partner, Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., was recently highlighted in NJBIZ Triple Play. In this feature, Levitt discussed the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) and how New Jersey homeowners can protect themselves from scams. As the Homeowner Affordable Modification Program comes to an end and expires in December 2016, Levitt wants to ensure home owners are protected from unscrupulous entities using the termination as a scare tactic. Since this is of the essence, if this affects any homeowner, they should feel free to speak with Bruce Levitt before time runs out.

Levitt has experience representing clients that have been affected by these scams. “Over the past several years we have had many people contact us after paying thousands, of dollars to loan modification experts for promises of modifications they were never eligible for and that seems to have increased in the last several months since the end of the HAMP program was announced”.

Mr. Levitt has lectured and given seminars to lawyers, individuals and homeowners on bankruptcy, loan modifications and foreclosure related topics.

Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., is a professional and compassionate legal firm that handles bankruptcies, foreclosures, loan modifications and business litigation matters. The firm assists clients in personal and small-business bankruptcy cases as well as other debt issues.
