Banks to begin payments to Georgia foreclosure victims

a gavel over a pile of banknotes

The nation’s biggest banks have begun to doll out repayment checks to borrowers in Georgia and around the country as part of a settlement agreement reached with federal regulators. The settlement came after an investigation into foreclosure practices that revealed banks were foreclosing on some homes that were not in default and denying loan modifications to some who qualified, among other things.

The payments will total $3.6 billion and will be spread across borrowers who were at any stage of the foreclosure process between 2009 and 2010 and who had mortgages services by the nation’s 13 largest banks. Payments to individual borrowers will have a range of $300 to as high as $125,000. The first wave of checks have already been sent out and the process is expected to be finished in July.

While the payments certainly cannot undo all of the harm caused by a wrongful foreclosure, they are an important start for the Georgia families who have been affected by unfair conduct at the big banks.

Homeowner in the Atlanta area know all too well how difficult it can be to go through foreclosure and how frustrating it is to try to work with banks to come to an agreement. In some cases, bank representatives will agree to one thing during a phone call, and then another representative will deny the agreement or say something to the contrary later. When this happens, it helps to have an experienced advocate to aid in stopping the foreclosure and saving the home.

    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.
