Tips for Talking to Your Servicer

  1. Document any conversations that you have with your loan servicer regarding these issues. Write down the date of your conversation, the name of the person that you spoke with, and what they told you to do regarding your loan, particularly regarding the submission of any documents or payment instructions. Save copies of any documents that you receive from or send to your mortgage servicer.
  2. If you are having problems reaching a live person, make sure that you are using all available online account resources, web chats, and mobile apps, as these companies are experiencing higher-than-usual call volumes. In addition, instructions on how to reach a live person at many banks and other financial institutions can be found at:
  3. You can also contact a HUD-approved housing counselor to help you explore options to obtain a loan modification to stay in your home. Housing counselors can: discuss your mortgage situation and determine if you qualify for any programs or additional help; help you understand what loss mitigation options your servicer offers and which might be best for you; guide you through the process of working with your servicer and help you with any paperwork you may need; and help you at little or no cost with other financial problems that may be making it difficult to pay your mortgage. You can find a HUD-approved housing counselor at or by calling the HOPE hotline at (888) 995-HOPE (4673).
