Mortgage Lenders to Reimburse Homeowners for Improper Foreclosure

ATLANTA (WAOK)  On Wednesday the Federal Government ordered 16 of the nations largest home mortgage lenders to reimburse homeowners who were improperly foreclosed upon. The government also ordered the lenders to hire auditors to determine how many homeowners could have avoided foreclosure. Bank Of America, Citi-Group and Wells Fargo are just a few mortgage lenders that are responsible for the documentation error. Under the agreement reached, lenders have 45 days to hire an auditor to look thoroughly through the questionable documentation.

    How about give back the homes to the people, wiping out any remaining mortgage they might have, and issuing a public apology? These banks are sorry and I will not put my money in any banks…If it’s not a credit union, my money is not going into it
