Banks agree to $2.7m foreclosure settlement with state


bostonglobe.com | January 19, 2015

By Deirdre Fernandes

Four national banks will pay the state $2.7 million to settle allegations that they violated Massachusetts laws and improperly foreclosed on homeowners during the housing crisis.

Bank of America, the state’s largest bank, along with JP Morgan Chase, Citi, and Wells Fargo Bank were all part of the settlement, announced by out-going Attorney General Martha Coakley.

The state accused the banks of sloppy paperwork, including robo-signing documents, and foreclosing on homes even though they didn’t have proper title to do so under state law.

“This settlement holds these four national banks accountable for violating state law and cutting corners in the foreclosure process,” Coakley said in a statement.

Since banks packaged and sold these home loans, distressed homeowners struggled to get answers from the correct mortgage holder before they were foreclosed upon. And in cases some cases banks failed to proper title to the foreclosed property before reselling it, causing the new homeowners to have problems selling the home later.

Under the terms of the settlement, the banks will pay $700,000 to the attorney general’s consumer aid fund to provide assistance to borrowers, while the remaining $2 million will be paid into the state’s general fund.
