The Obama Administration seems to be tired of having the mortgage crisis hanging around their neck. They want these troubled mortgage loans modified and borrowers back on their feet towards recovery. At least that is the message being sent by Treasury Departments’ three man “SWAT Teams” being deployed to eight of the largest servicers to monitor their work.
“In an effort to shame the companies into doing a better job, Treasury will publish a list next week of the mortgage companies that are lagging. While big lenders like Citigroup and Wells Fargo have made double-digit gains in the percentage of eligible borrowers they have signed up for trial modifications, other companies like Ocwen Financial and American Home Mortgage Servicing have only increased their borrower participation by 6 percentage points or less since July.”
