Lender Discovers Defective Notices During Pre-Foreclosure Presentation
Prior to starting a foreclosure, both the state and federal governments have enacted pre-foreclosure procedures with which either the lender or servicer must comply. Doing so properly is vital to ensure that borrowers are given the appropriate information at the appropriate times and that lenders or servicers are compliant in order to avoid fines and/or penalties.
A small institutional lender client in California asked us to conduct a refresher workshop for pre-foreclosure activities and the foreclosure process. We prepared a detailed overview of the requirements and timing of the notices required by the Dodd-Frank Act as well as the California Homeowners’ Bill of Rights.
During the presentation, it was discovered that the lender’s notices and its counsel did not comply with the information requirements of Dodd-Frank. We worked with the lender to update their compliance procedures to ensure that they were in alignment with with both federal and state laws. We helped our client avoid serious penalties from the government and exposure to lawsuits by borrowers. The potential cost savings to the lender is incalculable.
