Deutsche Bank mortgage settlement steers away from helping distressed homeowners

Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank backpedaled on its plan to provide loan modifications to distressed homeowners per their $7.2 billion settlement with the Department of Justice in February.

Lender's will seldom if ever will negotiate a true loan modification. But they will offer a forbearance and new payment schedule, in a hardship for example. The caveat...all interest will be due at some later date or upon payoff.
