Article Features Couple Who Faces Foreclosure ... for Paying Mortgage Too Early Mon, 29 Aug 2011 15:28:00 -0500 By Stacy Whelchel In a strange twist of events, a retired Florida couple was recently featured in a news story for being threatened with the sale of their home after paying their mortgage a week early. The background: The couple had faced financial difficulties due to the husband's terminal illness. They asked their bank for a loan modification. The request was granted with the requirement that the couple officially default on their monthly loan payment, which they did. Afterwards, their monthly payment amount dropped; however, the couple was removed from the plan when a January payment was made in late December. Foreclosure proceedings were initiated even after the bank was contacted for an explanation. The couple has now retained a lawyer to represent their interests in the ongoing case.
