Get a job? Hah. I wonder what this banker might be doing for a living if the government/taxpayers HADN'T loaned HIS employer TARP money.....

Your niece and DH might try contacting the Homeownership Preservation Foundation at (888) 995-HOPE (4673). The foundation's counselors are part of "HOPE NOW," an alliance between counseling agents, servicers, investors and other mortgage market participants approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, who provide free foreclosure prevention assistance.

Another person I'd recommend is Dave Donhoff, the mortgage guy. He posts here somewhat regularly and is a wealth of information. Perhaps if you address your query to him, he might be able to be of some assistance.

Below is a link to some additional information that might be helpful. Its nice of you to help your niece and DH. Best of luck to them.
