Since 2008, millions of Americans have lost their homes to foreclosures. Homeowners, Counties and Institutional Investors have lost billions as a result of one or more “wrongful” practices such as fraud, reporting inaccuracies, or “robo-signing by banks, lenders and the national tracking registry MERS.
Brent Coon & Associates is fighting to undo the wrongs, keeping people in their homes and getting a recovery for those who were cheated.
UPDATE: The mortgage industry has recently reached a settlement with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and Federal Reserve that created a multi-billion dollar fund to pay damages to victims of mortgage fraud.
Mortgage fraud can refer to many different unscrupulous practice employed by the banking and mortgage industry. In short, mortgage fraud refers to the process of the mass production of false and forged execution of mortgage assignments, satisfactions, affidavits, and other legal documents related to mortgage foreclosures. This includes forging signatures on legal documents, notary fraud wherein notaries pre-notarize or post-notarize affidavits and the practice of bank employees signing off on important legal documents and affidavits without reviewing them to investigate their veracity. Anything done by the banking or mortgage industry that bypasses standard legal procedures in order to expedite or falsify a foreclosure could potentially be mortgage fraud. These practices within the banking and mortgage industry are often described using the catch all term, “robo-signing.”
There are many types of mortgage fraud litigation and they often operate independently of each other. Many law firms focus solely on ways to help keep homeowners in their home before the foreclosure process becomes final. While this is a valuable service for homeowners who have not yet been evicted, it offers no legal recourse for homeowners who have already been foreclosed on – many times through wrongful and illegal practices.
If your home was wrongfully foreclosed on, especially in the years 2009 and 2010, you could be entitled to money to compensate you for your losses. Many of the country’s largest banks have already admitted to wrongful foreclosure practices and reached a settlement with the federal government which created a $9.3 billion dollar fund to compensate victims of wrongful foreclosure. However, this is FAR LESS money than people are actually owed . Even if you have already received a check, you are likely entitled to significantly more money.
