Late payments during mortgage modification can be reported

Dear Experian,

I have never been late with mortgage except the two months I was working on a mortgage modification with my mortgage company. I was told not to pay my mortgage payments until a determination was made, yet my account shows I was two months late. Why?


Loan modification could hurt your credit scores depending on how it is modified

Dear Experian,

I am interested in a modification on my mortgage loan. I would like to modify my repayment When I asked the bank if a modification would negatively impact my credit scores, I was told that it may be reported to the three credit reporting companies, but that the impact to my credit scores would be up to you. Would a modification, lower monthly payments or deferred payments lower my credit scores?
