Has anybody settled a Heloc with PNC bank? I have heard they are one of the worst to settle with. I owe them about $85K - I think it is a purchase money heloc in California but I am not sure because I used the money to buy the house, then about a year into it I paid back about $30K to the Heloc, and then I wrote a check for $30K 6 mos later. So maybe $30K of the money is non purchase? Not sure if they can break a loan apart like that. I never refi'd.

I called about a settlement and they said they don't settle and asked for 85%!!!! The house is underwater big time. I haven't paid since Jan 20.




I am in the same boat with PNC, though not as far along. I am 45 days late as of today. My conversation today was pretty hard core. The rep went so far as to say that health insurance is a luxury item and asked why I was paying for that, but not paying my HELOC. It took all of my will power not to laugh at him.
Interestingly enough, he mentioned that they do offer settlements. No numbers were thrown out there, but the door was opened. I am applying of a loan mod on my first and want to get that in order before I negotiate with PNC. Please keep me informed of your experience and I will do the same. Good luck.

By the way, this has been a wild year for me. Back in March, I completed a settlement with Wells Fargo - $130k for $40k. I am hoping that my negotiations with PNC go as well. Using the same coach!

All the best.

Thanks, how did you first contact PNC about a settlement? Did they threaten to foreclose? I would take 20% settlement in a heartbeat on mine. Just want the thing to GO AWAY.

Well I haven't paid them in a while. I am under the table on the first mortgage.

They actually can't foreclose as the second mortgage holder unless they wanted to pay off the first. Lol.

I still haven't settled. They dropped to 15%.

Did you modify your first? How did you get the process started. I was actually told by my states AG office that a car is a luxury item (how would I get to work where there is no public tranportation) and that is what PNC would use against me for a modification and or settlement.

I am in the same boat with PNC. I was able to modify my 1st that took over a year. my house is worth 50% of what i owe. I owe $200,000 on my second. I have not paid a payment for over a month. They call all of our phone number at least 3 times a day I have even received calls before 8:00AM. I told them a month ago that I do not have the money to pay the second because I just modified my 1st. The 1st is managed by PNC too. The second is managed by PNC but Citi Corp is the investor.

I am looking for direction. I would love to settle this, I have been told that they have settled for less than 5%.

You should contact PNC and try to modify your second mortgage. If you get good terms and conditions regarding modification of the loan, then you can go ahead with it. If your lender is not offering affordable terms and conditions for the loan modification, then you can always apply for a settlement with the lender. You should let your lender know as to what type of settlement you will like to go for. It will be the lender's discretion as to whether or not he'll agree to that settlement.

I have a HELOC for 170K, which is under. I am seeking advise on how to get the process started to negotiation with the lender for settlement. I seeked legal advise and they are asking for 10% of what is settled. Is a lawyer needed for settlement negotiaitons? Would it help decrease settlement percentage, or am I better off just trying to do it on my own.

It is not mandatory for you to take the help of a lawyer for a HELOC settlement. You can negotiate with your lender on your own. You should let the lender know about your financial hardship and request him to consider you for settlement. If you're able to convince your lender about your financial hardship, you'll be able to get the loan settled.

PNC is the worst to negotiate with, my advice is to never get into a loan with them in the first place. My situation is owing $290K on a HELOC. Their SS team will offer to settle no less than 60% regardless of seller available funds and push the house into either a lien release with deficency or let it go foreclosure. Also, I figured out their first line negotiators are very low level entry people with no negotiating power. You can make counteroffers but they will not.
