Atlanta bank admits errors in foreclosure processes

lawyer in a lawyers library

Last year, mortgage lenders across the country were forced to halt their foreclosure procedures after mass allegations that the lenders were improperly processing foreclosure documents in a practice that came to be known as ‘robo-signing’. However, the lenders quickly restarted foreclosure processes, claiming that they had found no issues and refusing to take any blame for the issues. One Atlanta-based bank has bucked this trend, recently announcing that it discovered issues with over 4,000 of its active foreclosure cases.

Last month, officials with SunTrust Banks announced that an internal review had led to the discovery of “technical issues” in several thousand of its foreclosure cases. The bank stated that several of its employees had engaged in practices similar to robo-signing, signing foreclosure documents without personally verifying the information contained in the document.

In a statement, bank officials stated that these problems affected less than 15 percent of its active cases in states that require judicial approval before a foreclosure can be completed. Although the bank did not specify the states affected by the issues, it is unlikely that Georgia foreclosures are included in the internal review because Georgia law does not call for such judicial intervention. However, Florida is believed to be a main focus of the bank’s review.

The bank reportedly began its internal review in September. It is aiming to complete the review and resubmit foreclosure documents as necessary before the completion of the first quarter. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice and the attorneys general of all 50 states, including Georgia, will continue to investigate mortgage lenders and the robo-signing allegations.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
