    Hakan Tale listens to Joseph Sant, a lawyer at Staten Island Legal Services, as Sant explains the latest round of paper work from Chase Bank regarding a denied loan modification application for Tale's mortgage in Staten Island, New York, December 9, 2011. Tale owns a store that sells granite and is working with Staten Island Legal Services to appeal the bank on their denial. Three years after the foreclosure crisis began, the process to apply for a loan modification remains a bureaucratic nightmare that is complicating the housing recovery and could dull the impact of any Obama administration initiatives in the works.

    FILE - In this June 5, 2002 file photo, a van is seen outside the gate at the home of Grammy-winning singer R. Kelly in Olympia Fields, Ill. The 22,000-square-foot mansion is on the market with a $1.595 million price tag. It's a short sale, meaning Kelly owes more on the house than it's worth. Over the summer the house was the subject of a $2.9 million foreclosure lawsuit because Kelly reportedly failed to make monthly mortgage payments for more than a year. (AP Photo/Frank Polich, File)
