Although first and second mortgages may involve the same banks or servicing companies, most modifications don’t connect first mortgage defaults with second mortgage defaults, even if it’s the exact same lender. This is primarily due to the fact that lenders don’t look carefully at a borrower’s overall financial condition and instead take a short-term view by conforming your income numbers to your first mortgage only. This is a mistake, but it could work to your advantage.
