AFTER YOU APPLY

We will conduct a thorough review of your financial situation, and first verify for your eligibility for the HAMP program. If HAMP doesn’t apply to your loan, we will work to match your situation to our own mortgage modification and assistance programs. While we consider your request, we will not initiate a new foreclosure action and we will not move ahead with the foreclosure sale on an active foreclosure as long as we have received all required documents and you have met the eligibility requirements. In the event that a foreclosure sale has been set and is within 30 days from this request for a HAMP application, the foreclosure sale will not be stopped and the sale will take place on the scheduled date unless a complete HAMP application with all required attachments and signatures is delivered to Ocwen no later than 7 business days prior to the scheduled foreclosure sale date. Requesting of a HAMP application via phone or via Ocwen’s website will not stop a scheduled foreclosure sale that is within 30 days of the application request.

Your application review takes 30 days on averagewe will be sure to let you know when our review is complete.

Keep in mind that “no news is good news” in the 30 days after you apply. But, if we need any information or clarification, we will be sure to let you know right away. There is no need to call, unless you have specific questions or concerns. If you do have questions, call us toll-free, at

AVOIDING FORECLOSURE - Mortgage Programs Are Available to Help

There are a variety of programs available to help you resolve your delinquency and keep your home. You may be eligible to refinance or modify your mortgage to make your payments and terms more manageable, for instance, lowering your monthly payment to make it more affordable. Or, if you have missed a few payments, you may qualify for a temporary (or permanent) solution to help you get your finances back on track. Depending on your circumstances, staying in your home may not be possible. However, a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure may be a better choice than foreclosure – see the table below for more information.

RENTAL PROPERTY CERTIFICATION

By checking this box and initialing below, I am requesting a mortgage modification under MHA with respect to the rental property described in this Section 3 and I hereby certify under penalty of perjury that each of the following statement is true and correct with respect to that property.

I intend to rent the property to a tenant or tenants for at least five years following the effective date of my mortgage

1.modification. I understand that the servicer, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, or their respective agents may ask me to provide evidence of my intention to rent the property during such time. I further understand that such evidence must show that I used reasonable efforts to rent the property to a tenant or tenants on a year-round basis, if the property is or becomes vacant during such five-year period.

Note: The term “reasonable efforts” includes, without limitation, advertising the property for rent in local newspapers, websites or other commonly used forms of written or electronic media, and/or engaging a real estate or other professional to assist in renting the property, in either case, at or below market rent.

2.The property is not my secondary residence and I do not intend to use the property as a secondary residence for at least five years following the effective date of my mortgage modification. I understand that if I do use the property as a secondary residence during such five-year period, my use of the property may be considered to be inconsistent with the certifications I have made herein.

Note: The term “secondary residence” includes, without limitation, a second home, vacation home or other type of residence that I personally use or occupy on a part-time, seasonal or other basis.

3.I do not own more than five (5) single-family homes (i.e., one-to-four unit properties) (exclusive of my principal residence).

Notwithstanding the foregoing certifications, I may at any time sell the property, occupy it as my principal residence, or permit my legal dependent, parent or grandparent to occupy it as their principal residence with no rent charged or collected, none of which will be considered to be inconsistent with the certifications made herein.

SECTION 5: INCOME INFORMATION - RECEIVED PER MONTH

All figures should represent the total amount received in a month for that income category.

GROSS Pay – This is the amount of compensation received by an employee each month before any deductions are made for taxes, health benefits, 401k contributions, etc.

NET Pay – This is the amount of compensation received by the employee each month after all deductions are made for taxes, health benefits, 401k contributions, etc. This would be the actual dollar amount on the pay check or amount deposited into the employee’s bank account, if direct deposit is used.

Overtime Pay, Commissions and Bonuses – This should be based on a monthly average since the amount received can vary on a monthly basis. For example, if bonus income of $1,200 is received on an annual basis, the amount entered should be $100 ($1,200 divided by 12 months = $100)..

Self Employed Borrowers – The total amount of income received per month should be tied back to the Profit and Loss Statement to be provided under the Document Checklist. A Profit and Loss Statement is a financial statement that summarizes the revenues, costs and expenses incurred during a specific period of time - usually a fiscal quarter or year.

SECTION 10: NON BORROWER CONSENT FORM

If you wish for income from individuals not listed on the mortgage to be considered in qualifying for a modification, Ocwen is required to review all non-borrower credit reports.

A non-borrower is defined as someone who lives at the property but is not on the original mortgage note (and may or may not be on the original security instrument), but whose income will be used to support the modified mortgage payment.

This form will authorize Ocwen to pull a credit report for occupancy verification as well as to support that this non-borrower income has not been utilized in a prior modification.

WITHOUT THIS AUTHORIZATION, NON-BORROWER INCOME CANNOT BE CONSIDERED AND MAY RESULT IN A DELAY IN

PROCESSING YOUR APPLICATION.

The following information is requested by the federal government in accordance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Pub. L.111-203). You are required to furnish this information. The law provides that no person shall be eligible to begin receiving assistance from the Making Home Affordable Program, authorized under the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (12 U.S.C. 5201 et seq.), or any other mortgage assistance program authorized or funded by that Act, if such person, in connection with a mortgage or real estate transaction, has been convicted, within the last 10 years, of any one of the following: (A) felony larceny, theft, fraud, or forgery, (B) money laundering or (C) tax evasion.

I/we certify under penalty of perjury that I/we have not been convicted within the last 10 years of any one of the following in connection with a mortgage or real estate transaction:

(a)felony larceny, theft, fraud, or forgery,

(b)money laundering or

(c)tax evasion.

I/we understand that the servicer, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, or their respective agents may investigate the accuracy of my statements by performing routine background checks, including automated searches of federal, state and county databases, to confirm that I/we have not been convicted of such crimes. I/we also understand that knowingly submitting false information may violate Federal law. This certification is effective on the earlier of the date listed below or the date this RMA is received by your servicer.: INFORMA FOR GOVERNMENT MONITORING PURPOSES

SECTION 14: BORROWER AND CO-BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND AGREEMENT

1.I certify that all of the information in this RMA is truthful and the hardship(s) identified above has contributed to submission of this request for mortgage relief.

2.I understand and acknowledge that the Servicer, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the owner or guarantor of my mortgage loan, or their respective agents may investigate the accuracy of my statements, may require me to provide additional supporting documentation and that knowingly submitting false information may violate Federal and other applicable law.

3.I authorize and give permission to the Servicer, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and their respective agents, to assemble and use a current consumer report on all borrowers obligated on the loan, to investigate each borrower’s eligibility for MHA and the accuracy of my statements and any documentation that I provide in connection with my request for assistance. I understand that these consumer reports may include, without limitation, a credit report, and be assembled and used at any point during the application process to assess each borrower’s eligibility thereafter.

4.I understand that if I have intentionally defaulted on my existing mortgage, engaged in fraud or if it is determined that any of my statements or any information contained in the documentation that I provide are materially false and that I was ineligible for assistance under MHA, the Servicer, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, or their respective agents may terminate my participation in MHA, including any right to future benefits and incentives that otherwise would have been available under the program, and also may seek other remedies available at law and in equity, such as recouping any benefits or incentives previously received.

5.I certify that any property for which I am requesting assistance is a habitable residential property that is not subject to a condemnation notice.

6.I certify that I am willing to provide all requested documents and to respond to all Servicer communications in a timely manner. I understand that time is of the essence.

7.I understand that the Servicer will use the information I provide to evaluate my eligibility for available relief options and foreclosure alternatives, but the Servicer is not obligated to offer me assistance based solely on the representations in this document or other documentation submitted in connection with my request.

8.I am willing to commit to credit counseling if it is determined that my financial hardship is related to excessive debt.

9.If I am eligible for assistance under MHA, and I accept and agree to all terms of an MHA notice, plan, or agreement, I also agree that the terms of this Acknowledgment and Agreement are incorporated into such notice, plan, or agreement by reference as if set forth therein in full. My first timely payment, if required, following my servicer's determination and notification of my eligibility or prequalification for MHA assistance will serve as my acceptance of the terms set forth in the notice, plan, or agreement sent to me.

10.I understand that my Servicer will collect and record personal information that I submit in this RMA and during the evaluation process, including, but not limited to, my name, address, telephone number, social security number, credit score, income, payment history, government monitoring information, and information about my account balances and activity. I understand and consent to the Servicer’s disclosure of my personal information and the terms of any MHA notice, plan or agreement to the U.S. Department of the Treasury and its agents, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in connection with their responsibilities under MHA, companies that perform support services in conjunction with MHA, any investor, insurer, guarantor, or servicer that owns, insures, guarantees, or services my first lien or subordinate lien (if applicable) mortgage loan(s) and to any HUD-certified housing counselor.

11.I consent to being contacted concerning this request for mortgage assistance at any e-mail address or cellular or mobile telephone number I have provided to the Servicer. This includes text messages and telephone calls to my cellular or mobile telephone.

The undersigned certifies under penalty of perjury that all statements in this document are true and correct.

SECTION 15: BEWARE OF FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS

Be advised that by signing this document you understand that any documents and information you submit to your servicer in connection with the Making Home Affordable Program are under penalty of perjury. Any misstatement of material fact made in the completion of these documents including but not limited to misstatement regarding your occupancy of your property, hardship circumstances, and/or income, expenses, or assets will subject you to potential criminal investigation and prosecution for the following crimes: perjury, false statements, mail fraud, and wire fraud. The information contained in these documents is subject to examination and verification. Any potential misrepresentation will be referred to the appropriate law enforcement authority for investigation and prosecution. By signing this document you certify, represent and agree that: “Under penalty of perjury, all documents and information I have provided to my Servicer in connection with the Making Home Affordable Program, including the documents and information regarding my eligibility for the program, are true and correct.”

If you are aware of fraud, waste, abuse, mismanagement or misrepresentations affiliated with the Troubled Asset Relief Program, please contact the SIGTARP Hotline by calling 1-877-SIG-2009 (toll-free), 202-622-4559 (fax), or www.sigtarp.gov and provide them with your name, our name as your servicer, your property address, loan number and the reason for escalation. Mail can be sent to Hotline Office of the Special Inspector General for Troubled Asset Relief Program, 1801 L St. NW, Washington, DC 20220.

Beware of Foreclosure Rescue Scams. Help is FREE!

There is never a fee to get assistance or information about the Making Home Affordable Program from your lender or a HUD-approved housing counselor.

Beware of any person or organization that asks you to pay a fee in exchange for housing counseling services or modification of a delinquent loan.

Beware of anyone who says they can “save” your home if you sign or transfer over the deed to your house. Do not sign over the deed to your property to any organization or individual unless you are working directly with your mortgage company to forgive your debt.

Never make your mortgage payments to anyone other than your mortgage company without their approval.

SECTION 16: HOMEOWNER'S HOTLINE

If you have questions about this document or the Making Home Affordable Program, please call your servicer.

If you have questions about the program that your servicer cannot answer or need further counseling, you can call the Homeowner's HOPE™ Hotline at 1-888-995-HOPE (4673).

The Hotline can help with questions about the program and offers free HUD-certified counseling services in English and Spanish.

SECTION 17: INFORMATION FOR GOVERNMENT MONITORING PURPOSES

The following information is requested by the federal government in order to monitor compliance with federal statutes that prohibit discrimination in housing. You are not required to furnish this information, but are encouraged to do so. The law provides that a lender or servicer may not discriminate either on the basis of this information, or on whether you choose to furnish it. If you furnish the information, please provide both ethnicity and race. For race, you may check more than one designation. If you do not furnish ethnicity, race, or sex, the lender or servicer is required to note the information on the basis of visual observation or surname if you have made this request for a loan modification in person.

SECTION 18: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1Why Did I Receive This Package?

You received this package because we have not received one or more of your monthly mortgage payments and want to help you keep your home if at all possible. We are sending this information to you now so that we can work with you to quickly resolve any temporary or long-term financial challenge you face to making all of your late mortgage payments.

2Where Can I Find More Information on Foreclosure Prevention?

Please see the Avoiding Foreclosure attachment in this package for more information, or you can contact Ocwen.com.

3Will I Be Evaluated for the Federal Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) When I Submit My Borrower Response Package? If you are not eligible for a refinance, reinstatement, repayment, or forbearance plan based on the information you provide, we will evaluate you for participation in the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). If you are not eligible for HAMP, we will evaluate you for a non- HAMP loan modification.

4Will It Cost Money to Get Help?

There should never be a fee from your servicer or qualified counselor to obtain assistance or information about foreclosure prevention options. However, foreclosure prevention has become a target for scam artists. Be wary of companies or individuals offering to help you for a fee, and never send a mortgage payment to any company other than the one listed on your monthly mortgage statement or one designated to receive your payments under a state assistance program.

What Happens Once I Have Sent the Borrower Response Package to You?

We will contact you within three business days of our receipt of your Borrower Response Package to confirm that we have received your package and will review it to determine whether it is complete. Within five business days of receipt of your request, we will send you a notice of incompleteness in the event there is any missing information or documentation that you must still submit. We cannot guarantee that you will receive any (or a particular type of) assistance.

Within 30 days of receipt of a complete Borrower Response Package, we will let you know which foreclosure alternatives, if any, are available to you and will inform you of your next steps to accept our offer. However, if you submit your complete Borrower Response Package less than 37 days prior to a scheduled foreclosure sale date, we will strive to process your request as quickly as possible, but you may not receive a notice of incompleteness or a decision on your request prior to sale. Please submit your Request for Mortgage Assistance Package as soon as possible.

What Happens to My Mortgage While You Are Evaluating My Borrower Response Package?

You remain obligated to make all mortgage payments as they come due, even while we are evaluating the types of assistance that may be available.

Will the Foreclosure Process Begin If I Do Not Respond to this Letter?

If you have missed four monthly payments or there is reason to believe the property is vacant or abandoned, we may refer your mortgage to foreclosure regardless of whether you are being considered for a modification or other types of foreclosure alternatives.

What Happens if I Have Waited Too Long and My Property Has Been Referred to an Attorney for Foreclosure? Should I Still Contact You?

Yes, the sooner the better!

What if My Property is scheduled for a Foreclosure Sale in the Future?

If you submit a complete Borrower Response Package less than 37 calendar days before a scheduled foreclosure sale, there is no guarantee we can evaluate you for a foreclosure alternative in time to stop the foreclosure sale. Even if we are able to approve you for a foreclosure alternative prior to a sale, a court with jurisdiction over the foreclosure proceeding (if any) or public official charged with carrying out the sale may not halt the scheduled sale.

Will My Property be sold at a Foreclosure Sale If I Accept a Foreclosure Alternative?

No. The property will not be sold at a foreclosure sale once you accept a foreclosure alternative, such as a forbearance or repayment plan, and comply with all requirements.

Will My Credit Score Be Affected by My Late Payments or Being in Default?

The delinquency status of your loan will be reported to credit reporting agencies as well as your entry into a Repayment Plan, Forbearance Plan, or Trial Period Plan in accordance with the requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Consumer Data Industry Association requirements.

Will My Credit Score Be Affected if I Accept a Foreclosure Prevention Option?

While the affect on your credit will depend on your individual credit history, credit scoring companies generally would consider entering into a plan with reduced payments as increasing your credit risk. As a result, entering into a plan with reduced payments may adversely affect your credit score, particularly if you are current on your mortgage or otherwise have a good credit score.

Is Foreclosure Prevention Counseling Available?

Yes, HUD-approved counselors are available to provide you with the information and assistance you may need to avoid foreclosure. You can use the search tool at http://www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/sfh/hcc/fc/ to find a counselor near you.

I Have Seen Ads and Flyers From Companies Offering to Help Me Avoid Foreclosure for a Fee. Are These Companies on the Level? Foreclosure prevention has become a target for scam artists. We suggest using the HUD Web site referenced in question 13 to locate a counselor near you. Also, please refer to the attached document called “Beware of Foreclosure Rescue Scams” for more information.
