Mortgage Modifications Declining

As a Fort Lauderdale Bankruptcy attorney and Fort Lauderdale foreclosure attorney, I repeatedly see the delays, frustrations and eventual rejections of mortgage modification applications. The following information is taken from the Sun-Sentinel on December 30, 2010.
