We stopped paying on our second lien in 2009 because we lost our business. Our first lien us underwater by $500K
I called the rep who told me PNC would consider 10% or 20K.
He said I needed to provide tax returns, bank statements and pay stubs
I explained I don't have any of these as I have not income and our son has been living with us and paying our first mortgage and he would loan us the money to settle this.
The rep sent it up for approval but said it would take up to 6 weeks for approval. What do they do to make the decision to approve? I mean they came up the the figure... Is this usually just a formality and most people get approved or do they then come back with a higher number?
This is my first settlement and not sure what happens next!

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
