The Mortgage Professor: Do large principal payments reduce monthly payments?

On home mortgages, a large payment to principal reduces the loan balance and with it the fully-amortizing monthly payment, or FAMP. FAMP is the level of monthly payment required to repay the mortgage fully over its remaining term. Many borrowers would like a mortgage on which the monthly payment would drop to the new, lower FAMP following a large payment to principal and are disappointed when they find they don't have one.

Real estate Q&A: Credit scores aren't the be-all, end-all

Q: Our home was foreclosed by our first mortgage lender several years ago, leaving the second mortgage unpaid. After we got back on our feet financially three years ago, I began trying to reach out to the second mortgage lender to work things out. The lender would not speak to me about it, other than to say the loan was charged off. Because the debt was still on my credit report, I kept at the lender and finally negotiated a settlement, paying a reduced amount. Still, the debt shows up on my credit report as settled for less than the full amount owed - and that's preventing me from getting a new mortgage for three more years. Is the lender liable for blowing me off all that time?
