greentree financing!! - Posted by Lynn

I would suggest that you get some legal counsel, perhaps with the local legal services agency if necessary. If your initial note is written for a fixed rate and term which it probably was with the payments at $ 652 per month, and you were current with the payments so that there wasn’t a default clause that triggered a higher interest rate, any purchase of the note by Greentree is bound by the terms of the original note. They cannot arbitrarily change it. If Greentree changed the note illegally, you would have a chance to recover. If you re-wrote the note to get cash out or something like that, you would have a harder time but not impossible.

I don’t wish to give you false hope about getting out from under the note without bankruptcy. I repeat the advice about having an attorney review the document and have all the letters about changing the interest rate and documentation of your monthly payments.

Good luck.

I need some kind of help or I will not be able to keep up these payments.

I don’t understand your problem. You say your payment was 652 a month, and then you say “Now my payment is 858.62…”. What happened? Why did your payment go up? Where did the number 1387 come from? 16.99% is a very steep rate, and it may make more sense to walk away, and get a home somewhere else that is less expensive.

Perhaps you should consider a smaller home, or an older home that someone would finance for you with a lower monthly payment.

Good luck!
