On the heels of JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s loan modification program, Citigroup Inc. is putting a moratorium on most foreclosures as it reaches out to 500,000 homeowners who are not currently behind on their mortgages but who are deemed to be a potential risk. The company will assign 600 salespeople to assist the targeted borrowers by adjusting their rates, reducing principal, or increasing the term of the loan.
Citigroup reported losses in the last four quarters. The moratorium is designed to stem the flow of red ink. “Typically the lender loses the most money when a house goes into foreclosure,” says Barry Zigas, director of housing policy at the Consumer Federation of America.
