Cenlar Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure Process

If Cenlar FSB is currently servicing your loan and you want to apply for Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure then we at ACG will make sure that our customers go through a process that is standard and similar to most companies:

  1. One of our team members calls the Cenlar FSB counselor and sometimes we have to follow up after placing an appointment but once have spoken to them the process will begin on your Deed In Lieu Application.
  2. Request for Mortgage Assistance (RMA) Paperwork is also required for the process.
  3. You may have to go through a review for Loan Modification before the DIL process.
  4. They prefer you try to sell the property before they take on the liability of owning the property in some cases because they will require you to attempt to sell the property prior to allowing you to deed it back to them.
  5. You will have to get your property’s title checked as a next step.
  6. Cenlar will complete valuation on your property on behalf of the investor.
  7.  In next step, terms of relocation and timeframes will be negotiated by us with Cenlar.
  8. Lastly, your lender provides a response to the deed in lieu of foreclosure made to them.

But do not worry as ACG has experience of more than a decade in helping customers facing difficulties with their mortgage.

Cenlar Loan Deed In Lieu Timeline

Similarly to any company of this size timeline of Deed In Lieu Process varies greatly. Sometimes, reasons are obvious and sometimes it is not clear what is going on. These are just a few of the hoops we jump through when dealing with a deed in lieu with Cenlar.

  • To begin with,  Cenlar, as the name suggests, is just a loan servicer. They are only working on behalf of an investor. Cenlar has to follow a set of rules for any process which is called as “PSA” or Pooling and Servicing Agreement that governs the pools of mortgages they service. The PSA is like a  contract between servicer and beneficiary of the mortgage note. Due to these set of rules Cenlar cannot always make a decision themselves and for the decision that they are not allowed to make they will have to get approval from the investor. Some investors such as Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC) have pulled almost all decision making authority from many servicers and take care of many of the decisions themselves. As always the greater the number of hands in the put the more layers of bureaucracy you’re going to deal with.
  • Additionally, whether your loan has a foreclosure date or not hugely effects the timeline of the process. The company can be very difficult to deal with when a sale has to be stopped so that the Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure process can be completed. The sale dates even in the coming week are not worked on urgently as a company like Cenlar has sale dates for every working day of the week. Remember this business is a first come first serve but it is also influenced by foreclosure status and proximity to the sale date.
  • Finally, Not all negotiators were created equally. This goes for both sides which is what makes the process so tricky. At such a large level of this type, miscommunication can lead to certain failure. It is a very specialized skill to represent a homeowner in this niche of Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure process that can be learned only through experience. Often you will be put through the multiple levels of management including approval from an investor as mentioned above depending on what their total losses are for the banking institution who owns the interest in the loan.

Cenlar Loan Deed In Lieu Timeline Conclusion: The timeline of the Cenlar Deed In Lieu Of Foreclosure depends on a very broad range of factors and not only limited to the ones mentioned above. A decision will be made a lot quicker if Cenlar can make it themselves. What the lender perceives as the value of the property will also affect the timeline. If you have other liens this is also likely to limit your ability to complete a deed in lieu. How fast Cenlar’s Loss Mitigation department receives the Cenlar Bank  Deed In Lieu Forms to apply for mortgage assistance are received (readable) and other factors will come together to affect how long it will take for your Cenlar Deed In Lieu application will take to be Approved.

If Your Cenlar Loan Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure Was Denied There May Still Be Options.

Cenlar 1 Star Review:

If I could give them 0 stars I would! DO NOT USE CENLAR!!! Every single employee I’ve talked to is SORRY! They are not trained and they for sure are useless! They say, “Okay we will call you back,” and NOTHING! I’ve been dealing with an issue caused by THEM for 3 months now! They “lost” one of my payments so I paid over the phone to find out that they keep reversing my payments even though my payments have cleared my account. They keep telling me I’m late when I’M NOT! They have reported it to my credit and dropped my score 81 points! I’ve sent in proof of payment 4 different times!!! And they still “can’t find a payment.” THE PROOF IS IN FRONT OF THEIR FACE!!! When I try to explain my issues to a rep they don’t want to hear it and will not listen!! I’ve talked to supervisors, and they are just as bad!!! I AM BEYOND LIVID! DO NOT USE THEM. THEY ARE CROOKS!!!

Cenlar 1 Star Review:

I too am wondering how in the world this company is still in business and how the employees can sleep at night! About 3 years ago we had to go through a modification on our loan. I did everything I was told and was quoted a figure for a new monthly payment. For the next FOUR MONTHS. I made my payment on time. Then in August I get a letter of foreclosure! I called and was told the payment I had made each month was too low and I was getting further and further behind each month. All four months not one time did anyone who took my let me know this! I found out the imbecile who did my modification was no longer employed there. Had been fired. I told them I was quoted a too low payment by this person but it didn’t matter.

Cenlar 1 Star Review:

After taking more than a year to complete my loan modification, I am still 2 months in default. During this time, CENLAR sent me final modification papers 3 separate times over 6 months before getting the figures correct. They never communicated with me regarding why there was such a long delay. Somehow after off the delay and after they calculated all the trial payments, I am still 2 months behind. HELP! After constantly calling them, they have no solution for this. They are now sending pre-foreclosure notices once again.
