Lender Liability for Wrongful Mortgage Foreclosure

A number of mortgage servicers are facing attorneys general (AG) investigations in multiple states, as well as a large number of borrower and guarantor lawsuits amid a “foreclosure crisis” fueled by substantial proof of improper and unlawful practices during judicial foreclosures.

These suits are largely grounded on servicers’ submissions of sham or false documents and signatures to courts to justify foreclosures. Servicers who are found to have acted fraudulently may be subject to sanctions, legal costs and dismissal of pending foreclosures. Reopened foreclosures will also impact title insurers and the purchasers of foreclosed homes and other properties.

If you have been the victim of wrongful mortgage foreclosure, including “robo-signer” fraud, you should have an attorney explain the steps you should take to preserve any lender liability claims for wrongful foreclosure.

Huddleston Law Offices offers our perspectives and guidance on these and other critical questions:

  • What is the basis for legal claims alleging wrongful foreclosure?
  • How have the GSEs/investors responded so far to investigations into the execution of affidavits, verifications and other legal documents to support judicial foreclosures?
  • What are the most common mistakes mortgage servicers make when modifying or foreclosing on loans that can lead to lender liability claims?
  • What steps should borrowers and property owners take when faced with a wrongful foreclosure?
