The owner of the Mortgage. I assume that the Federal Government, as the owner, will attempt to workout a payment plan with the borrower (or new buyer?). That appears in the draft and allows the Government to cut the balance on the loan and or the interest rate. Really going to go over big with the neighbor who is paying his or her Mortgage at the CONTRACTED rate and amount.

It's a bit more complicated than that. The short answer is that the loan servicer calls the shots. See the last dozen or so posts in this thread:Bailout not a done deal

The Government, if it owns all of the bonds in a given series or tranches of an asset securitization, does not "own" the mortgage. But as bondholder for an entire series of bonds it might be able to influence the loan servicers.

before the bond holders had to OK any mortgage modification. Once the government buys up the mortgages they can tell the servicers how much they are willing to modify the loans

expect to see every loan in trouble be modified over the next few years as the government buys loans, modifies them and then sells them off and buys more loans
