# How can I get an amortization from lender for a modified HAMP loan?

GMAC modified my 5.375% fixed loan and gave me a break for 5 years. The HAMP gave me an interest rate of 3.5% for 5 years (2010 - 2015), then it changes to 4.5% for 1 year (2015) and then 5.0% for the life of the loan (2016 - 2035).  I ask them for an amortization but they said they cannot give me that due to the various levels of interest rates.  They also gave me \$1,000 towards principal reduction, for 5 years, every January, they deduct \$1K from the principal. My orig. 5.375% will be down to 5.0%, basically a 0.375% break........... but I think there is something not right.  I try to do my own spreadsheet and calculate amortization, and the total paid seems to be way way too high.  Where can I get an amortization done, taking the \$5K reduction into account and the various levels of interest rates?

For the first 5 years. You need to start with the base loan amount and amortize at 3.5% on a 25 year schedule (2035 - 2010 = 25 year amortization schedule); depending on what date they give you the \$1,000 and when you start the amortization on this first period, if your amortization starts on January 1st, amortize a loan amount less \$1,000, or if it's mid year, take the amortized balance at that time, subtract \$1,000 and continue to amortize for this first period. Every year you'd need to amortize, subtract the \$1,000 from January 1st and re-amortize the balance of the first period (years 1-5)

Next, take the balance on year 5 and amortize that balance at 4.5% for 1 year.

Then take the balance after year 6, and amortize at 5% for the life of the loan.

You can use bankrate.com or google amortization calculator. You'll have to calculate and manually add for all the adjustments.

Hope this helps.

You will need to calculate for each year. Too many variables for a amortization schedule.
Check the math on the 2010-2012 YTD mortgage statements.
It does sound like you got a good deal though.
Best to you.
