Consider a modification as a brand new mortgage that you are entering between you and the bank. Missed payments and fees that were accrued on your original mortgage are added to the unpaid principal balance. Depending on the investor, the modification can reduce interest rates to current levels or extend the mortgage terms to a new 30 or 40-year loan term to make the payments more affordable.
