    I have applied for a rental loan modification since 2008. I applied again Jul 2010 and imminent default declined it because they said it was non owner occupied. Way Forward told me they do rental loans. I asked Chase to open the file again and this time it's with Chase's loss mitigation. Has anyone had any success with getting a rental loan modification with Chase??

    Welcome and thank you for joining the community.

    We have seen quite a few rental property success stories with Chase over the last year, but with so many threads here they are pretty hard to locate. Here is a good thread with multiple members here pursuing a loan mod on their rental property with Chase and several members who were successful doing so:

    YES, it is possible with due dilligence and constant sleepless hours...

    Key to it is the type of loans, who is securing them.

    for example if you have a first and a second from same bank...you will have a big time better chance.

    if you have a second that has a higher balance and the first is backed by GSE's, good chance.

    imperative that you have a lease agreement available...do not submit until for sure bank will work with you...

    does some of this help?

    Hi Flippin,

    I carry a 1st only and the loan is owned by Chase. When I applied I turned in the lease agreement too. They keep on denying me and moving it to another dept. As of this morning it was with Loss Mitigation. I called later this afternoon they switched it back to imminent default. Chase is really bad... But thanks for your input.

    Glad to know I'm not alone in this fight! I know for a fact if you're with imminent default they will not do a rental loan. This is where I'm stuck.
    Only loss mitigation will look at it, but you're loan has to be delinquent for more than 2 months for loss mit to look at it.

    I've been trying to modify three rentals with Chase since last year. I've been playing the please resubmit document game, sent in over 500 pages of documentation, I've been assigned the the "Special Lending Unit" which was primarily handling rentals, then later told no such unit existed.... First denial last year was because they "could not determine if anyone lived at the house". Second denial was this month, because it is a rental. I submitted a loan workout proposal, the property is still underwater by 60%, and was told the proposal was denied because it is a rental and the investor is not participating in loan mods....... All they are offering is the option to either refi or enter into a repayment plan which would be higher payments than the original payments! How do you refi an underwater property??????

    I have been working with Chase on a refinance for a rental property as well. I have submitted paperwork 3 times, I was just told again that I will not qualify because the property has a positive cash flow. But the new case manager told me I can re-apply and keep on making the trial payment ( which I have been making for a year). The positive cah flow really is negligible. And Chase apply my payments towards a monthly adjustable rate from 2008!!! So basically, They are making money, I doubt that They are interested in modifying my loan because of that.

    Has anyone met with Chase counselors face-to-face?
    I have yet to find one successful loan modification owner-occupied or non-owner. Am I missing something?

    In 2005 I invested in four rental properties now all under water. Last year I stopped paying property taxes
    with bankruptcy in mind. Several months later I received letters from Chase informing me of loan non-compliance.

    I decided to pay the property taxes including penalty with credit cards. Taxes are due Dec. 10 and I am once
    again considering non-payment. The loans are all minimum interest only with some of the payment going to principal. However, in mid-2012 the loans reset to principal and interest at the going rate which will make it impossible to meet loan payments. I see no alternative to walking away. Does anyone else have similar situations and/or suggestions? The investment properties were to supplement my only source of income - social security, yet I know many others are suffering far greater than I - the financial mess is causing so
    many undue hardship.

    Are these Banksters even doing mods for rental properties???? Has anyone even got a trial mod these days on even primary properties? Is it asking too much for a reasonable permanent mod and close the files so that we can all move on?????????

    Helen, I have my home with Chase and 3 rental properties with BOA, nee Countrywide. I'm working them all simultaneously - haven't yet gotten a perm mod in writing on any, although I'm told one mod on a rental prop has been approved. Since I've yet to receive the mod docs, so I'm not considering it a done deal.

    Hello Keepit,

    After being denied yet again, a couple of weeks later, I get a call from Chase rep to resubmit documents so they can review my loan mod request............. I sent it in (to date, I've sent in 500 pages over a year now and counting). I plan to fight to the end!!!!!!!

    What would happen if Real Estate Brokers stop selling foreclosure with Mers?

    In your dealings with agents and brokers ask them if they are still taking the chance of a future lawsuit by selling foreclosure with Mers.
    Lets get this out there folks. If no one buys them eventually they will have to deal with the only people that want them- the owners.

    I will try again and send my application for the 4th time with Chase. I have a hard time with Chase as compared to other lenders. I have 3 loan modifcations already approved with Citimortgage and Am Trust Bank.

    Good morning laboy,

    Congratulations on getting 3 rental loan modifcations approved! By posting this, you gave me renewed hope!!!!!!!!

    I'd like to know what steps you took to get these permanent mods, with respect to getting these lenders to work with a "rental property template." For instance, the monies coming in has to be spread throughout multiple properties.....
