Mortgage Servicing Abuse : What Are You Going to Do About It ?


Let's say that right after you get your mortgage you get a letter from your lender stating that the monthly payments that they had scheduled for you were actually going to be higher than what you expected or were told.

Not only that, but the lender goes on to tell you that the new payments will include the escrow for taxes and insurance even though your paying those items yourself, and that the lender had approved this arrangement so that you could pay them yourself originally.

On top of that, you get a letter following this one that says your being charged late fees.

And you know full well and have proof that your payments were on time.

And better yet, next comes a letter that says that you didn't maintain the required property insurance on the home and the lender is providing a more expensive property insurance policy for you that you have to pay for !

And what about the legal fees that are added to the amount they say that you now owe, which increases your monthly payments or any amount you might owe at the end of your terms.

Better yet, the lender doesn't provide you with an accurate and complete account of the new charges they're making.

Then, when you ask for a payoff statement to refinance with another lender, so you can get away from what you believe is fraud in the making, you get a statement that's inaccurate or not completed so that the lender's actions make it next to impossible to figure out just how much money you've already paid and how much you still owe on your loan, making it impossible to refinance.

What are you going to do about it?
