Banks under fire for loan modification failures

driveway of a detached house

A state-level Attorney General is says he will file a lawsuit against the nation’s largest and most powerful banks if they do not come into compliance with the recent settlement agreement over unfair foreclosure practices.

The prosecutor says that he has gotten over 300 complaints from people in his state who say that the banks are moving slowly and purposefully dragging their feet in responding to requests for loan modifications. Under the terms of the settlement, the nation’s largest banks have an obligation to respond to requests in a more timely manner and to keep records updated so that homeowners are not facing foreclosure even after they have successfully obtained a modification.

The settlement has already provided hundreds of thousands of homeowners with relief from foreclosures and short sales by compelling banks to cooperate with qualified borrowers. As we have discussed previously on this blog, the banks have also recently begun issuing payments for those who have already suffered from a wrongful foreclosure because of robo-signing practices.

Unfortunately, within several months of the agreement between banks and regulators that led to the settlement, consumers were reporting that banks were still displaying the same bad behavior and sketchy business practices that led to the initial investigation of robo-signing.

Borrowers have a right to fair treatment by banks and not to suffer from a foreclosure when they would be able to make payments with a reasonable loan modification. Homeowners who are struggling to come to an agreement with their banks because of inconsistent information or un-updated records can seek assistance from an experienced foreclosure prevention attorney.

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!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

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.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
