MortgageOrb says the U. S. Treasury Department has revised incentive payments to mortgage servicers under the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). The new directive calls for a sliding scale form of payment that will be instituted October 1. The later in delinquency a loan enters the program, the less the servicer is paid. For loans up to 120 days late, the servicer receives $1600. Up to 210 days out, the incentive falls to $1200. Beyond 210 days, the loans that enter a trial period plan (TPP) will garner the servicer only $400. Incentives to borrowers and investors, and pay for success incentives, will remain the same.
