I certify, acknowledge, and agree to the following:
1.
All of the information in this Borrower Assistance Form is truthful and the hardship that I have identified
contributed to my need for mortgage relief.
2.
The accuracy of my statements may be reviewed by the servicer, owner or guarantor of my mortgage, their
agent(s), or an authorized third party*, and I may be required to provide additional supporting documentation.
I will provide all requested documents and will respond timely to all servicer, or authorized third party*,
communications.
3.
Knowingly submitting false information may violate Federal and other applicable law.
4.
If I have intentionally defaulted on my existing mortgage, engaged in fraud or misrepresented any fact(s) in
connection with this request for mortgage relief or if I do not provide all required documentation, the servicer
may cancel any mortgage relief granted and may pursue foreclosure on my home and/or pursue any available
legal remedies.
5.
The servicer is not obligated to offer me assistance based solely on the representations in this document or other
documentation submitted in connection with my request.
6.
I may be eligible for a Trial Period Plan, repayment plan, or forbearance plan. If I am eligible for one of these
plans, I agree that:
a.
All the terms of this Acknowledgment and Agreement are incorporated into such plan by reference as if
set forth in such plan in full.
b.
My first timely payment under the plan will serve as acceptance of the terms set forth in the notice of the
plan sent by the servicer.
c.
The servicer’s acceptance of any payments under the plan will not be a waiver of any acceleration of my
loan or foreclosure action that has occurred and will not cure my default unless such payments are
sufficient to completely cure my entire default under my loan.
d.
Payments due under a Trial Period Plan for a modification will contain escrow amounts. If I was not
previously required to pay escrow amounts, and my Trial Period Plan contains escrow amounts, I agree to
the establishment of an escrow account and agree that any prior waiver is revoked. Payments due under a
repayment plan or forbearance plan may or may not contain escrow amounts. If I was not previously
required to pay escrow amounts and my repayment plan or forbearance plan contains escrow amounts, I
agree to the establishment of an escrow account and agree that any prior escrow waiver is revoked.
