Mortgage rates that were reduced under the government's home affordable modification program will increase over the next few years. A federal watchdog warns that could cause some borrowers to default on their loans. The increases will impact about 783,000 homeowners who got mortgages as low as two-percent under the HAMP program. Modifications were fixed for five years and will now climb to 5.4--percent. The increase will have the average homeowner paying almost $200 more a month. Borrowers in expensive coastal markets could see their mortgage payments climb by as much as $1,700.
