Compensation for Servicemembers Over Illegal Foreclosures Increased to $311 Million

first_img Related Articles Compensation for Servicemembers Over Illegal Foreclosures Increased to $311 Million Another $186 million in compensation will be awarded to 1,461 service members and their co-borrowers over the unlawful foreclosure of their homes as part of the Department of Justice’s settlement with five of the nation’s largest mortgage servicers, according to an announcement from the DOJ.These totals bring the amount of foreclosure-related compensation given to servicemembers by the five servicers (JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citi, GMAC Mortgage, and Bank of America) to more than $311 million. A total of 2,413 sevicemembers and their co-borrowers are eligible to receive the compensation under protections afforded them by the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), according to the DOJ.“While this compensation will provide some financial relief to more than 2,400 service members and their families, the fact is no one serving our country in the Armed Forces should ever have to worry about losing their home to an illegal foreclosure,” said Acting Associate Attorney General Stuart F. Delery.  “Through the Servicemembers and Veterans Initiative, the Department of Justice will continue to use every tool at our disposal to protect service members and their families from such unjust actions.”“While this compensation will provide some financial relief to more than 2,400 service members and their families, the fact is no one serving our country in the Armed Forces should ever have to worry about losing their home to an illegal foreclosure.”The servicemembers are receiving the compensation as a result of the SCRA portion of the 2012 National Mortgage Settlement and a previous settlement with Bank of America. The foreclosures in question took place over a six-year period from January 1, 2006, to April 4, 2012. The servicers are alleged to have obtained foreclosure proceedings or default foreclosure judgments without notifying the court that the servicemember was on active duty in the military. Section 533 of the SCRA prohibits non-judicial foreclosures on servicemembers who are either in military service or within the applicable post-service period, provided the mortgages were originated prior to the beginning of their military service.Under the terms of the NMS, each identified servicemember with a mortgage serviced by one of the five servicers named will receive $125,000, plus any lost equity in the property and any interest on the lost equity, according to the DOJ.“We are very pleased that the men and women of the armed forces who were subjected to unlawful foreclosure judgments while they were serving our country are now receiving compensation,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta, head of the Civil Rights Division.  “We look forward, in the coming months, to facilitating the compensation of additional service members who were subjected to excess interest charges on their mortgages.  We appreciate that JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citi, GMAC Mortgage and Bank of America have been working cooperatively with the Justice Department to compensate the service members whose rights were violated.”The compensation schedule is as follows:Click here for more in the SCRA.Click here for more on the National Mortgage Settlement of 2012.

Housing Outlook for 2016: Higher Home Sales and Prices, Falling Refi Volumes

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Housing Outlook for 2016: Higher Home Sales and Prices, Falling Refi Volumes The year 2016 is expected to usher in the creation of 1.25 million new households, higher rental demand, increased home sales, and a rise in home purchase loan originations even as refinancing volume plummets, CoreLogic’s Chief Economist predicted Monday.Dr. Frank Nothaft, senior vice president and chief economist at CoreLogic, released his 2016 Outlook for Housing. The signature report offers viewers a few twists, turns and apparent contradictions.For starters, Nothaft estimates dollar volumes for single-family mortgage originations will plummet 10% despite his prediction of a significant rise in home equity lending and home purchase loan originations.Still, he says, an uptick in those areas will be offset by a 34 percent decline in refinancing activity as mortgage rates rise, scaring off homeowners who have yet to refinance their existing mortgages.At the same time, multifamily originations will continue to grow considering rental vacancy rates are now at or near their lowest levels in 20 years, Nothaft noted in his report.The economist expects demand for apartments and houses to rise significantly in 2016 as younger households take form.Meanwhile, interest rates will move higher on a gradual basis, causing adjustable-rate mortgage holders to see notable increases in interest rates at a time when the Federal Reserve is expected to raise short-term rates one percentage point between now and the end of 2016, Nothaft says.As for fixed-rate mortgages, Nothaft estimates a one-half of a percentage point rise between now and the end of 2016, with a forecast of 4.5 percent on the 30-year loan.As for home sales and home prices, Nothaft expects both economic fundamentals to experience increases next year. He even predicts the CoreLogic Home Price Index will rise 4 to 5 percebt in 2016 as consumers experience the benefits of an improved economy and financial stability.”As we approach the start of 2016, the consensus view among economists is that economic growth will continue, and the U.S. will enter an eighth consecutive year of expansion in the second half of next year,” Nothaft reported. “Most forecasts place growth at 2 and 3 percent during 2016, creating enough jobs to exert downward pressure on the national unemployment rate.” December 7, 2015 2,047 Views Sign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Kerri Panchuk Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Kerri Panchuk is an attorney and financial writer with more than a decade of experience covering real estate, default servicing, residential mortgage-backed securities, retail, macroeconomics, and commercial real estate.

The industry data came from organizations like the National Association of Realtors.The news isn’t too great for salary-dependent homeowners.According to the website, the salaries needed to pay for higher-priced homes increased once more in all but five metro areas.Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Cincinnati topped the list of the most affordable cities, with homebuyers who make over $30,000 each year more able to buy homes.The least affordable cities included the Californian cities San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles, where homebuyers needed salaries that ranged from the upper five figures to six figures.According to HSH.com, the median value of a home bought in the fourth quarter dipped in 21 of the 27 markets, but not by enough overall to alleviate the strain on salaries.Mortgage rates were also up during the fourth quarter last year, with the 30-year fixed-rate home loan climbing high in cost and stretching more paychecks.The analysts also found that home prices inched higher in markets nationwide.The website quoted National Association of Realtors chief economist Lawrence Yun as saying, “Depressed new and existing inventory conditions led to several of the largest metro areas seeing near or above double-digit appreciation, which has pushed home values to record highs in a slight majority of markets.””The prospect of higher mortgage rates and more home shoppers in coming months should be enough of an incentive for those serious about buying to start their search now,” HSH.com also reported NAR President William Brown as saying.  Print This Post Tagged with: Home Price mortgage Salary Related Articles Home Price mortgage Salary 2017-02-23 Ryan Schuette Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Ryan Schuette is a journalist, cartoonist, and social entrepreneur with several years of experience in real-estate news, international reporting, and business management.

Feinstein, Professor at Wharton University, authored a brief titled “State Foreclosure Law: A Neglected Element of the Housing Finance Debate.” Feinstein explores the impact that judicial foreclosures have on borrowers, lenders, and policymakers. The research indicates that judicial foreclosures alter lender behavior in a way that is beneficial to borrowers, keeping regulatory goals intact. Feinstein states that lenders are cautious about loan-approval decisions and offer fewer sub-prime loans in states with judicial foreclosures. Furthermore, the borrowers are not charged with higher rates as a result of costs imposed on lenders by judicial foreclosures. Benefits to BorrowersMandatory judicial foreclosures are beneficial to borrowers as judicial supervision compels lenders to meet all requirements to foreclosure. The extra time consumed in court proceedings helps borrowers stay in their homes for a longer period. The costs of mandatory judicial foreclosures to borrowers are debatable, Feinstein said. Judicial foreclosures also provide a legal forum for borrowers to contest predatory loans and it also serves as a transfer payment,Disadvantages of Judicial ForeclosuresBy one estimate, foreclosures cost an average of $3,112 in judicial foreclosure states but only $2,269 in other states, it indicated. It further notes that only 21 percent of borrowers were represented by counsel at any point during the foreclosure process, and only 24 percent of borrowers even filed an answer. The brief points out that judicial foreclosures take substantially longer to complete compared to nonjudicial ones, leading to vacant properties.Rick Sharga, EVP, Carrington Mortgage Holdings, told DS News that “ Zombie properties tend to proliferate in states that feature a judicial foreclosure process, wherein the foreclosure proceedings have to make their way through the court system. Regulations in these states have sometimes extended the foreclosure process beyond 1,000 days.” At the peak of the crisis, these foreclosures could sometimes drag on for as long as 1,300 days in states such as New York and New Jersey. The metropolitan areas with the most zombie foreclosures include New YorkNewark-Jersey City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Miami, and Tampa-St. Petersburg.Lender BehaviorFeinstein also examined lender behavior in 14 pairs of neighboring states where one state-mandated judicial foreclosures and the other did not. The analysis revealed that lenders are less likely to approve mortgage applicants in judicial-foreclosure states than they are applicants in non-judicial states. Approved applicants were found less likely to be offered subprime products in states that mandate judicial foreclosure. The analysis also noted that approved applicants with lower socioeconomic status are even less likely to be offered subprime products in judicial foreclosure states. Overall, judicial foreclosure requirements are associated with an approximate 2.1–2.8 percent reduction in the likelihood of loan approval and, conditional on loan approval, a 0.2–1.0 percent reduction in the likelihood of being offered a subprime loan, it revealed.Click here to read the full report.

Foreclosure Starts Near All-Time Low

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Foreclosure starts in February 2020 hit their lowest level on record since January 2000, according to Black Knight’s First Look at February Mortgage Data. Foreclosure starts fell 25% from January 2020, and 20% from the year prior, while the national foreclosure rate also ticked lower in February, falling to 0.45%.Delinquencies were up slightly from January, but remain more than 15% below last year’s levels. Prepayment activity rose by nearly 8% month-over-month as early 2020 rate declines have begun to impact refinance activity.By state, Mississippi led Black Knight’s data with the highest percentage of non-current loans, at 9.72%. Mississippi was followed by Louisiana, Alabama, West Virginia, and Arkansas. At the bottom of the ranking were California (1.98%), Oregon (1.88%), Idaho (1.87%), Colorado (1.72%), and Washington (1.70%).Auction.com reported in January that experts predict foreclosure and REO inflow will increase in 2020, with most of the influx coming for government-insured loans.The majority of servicers Auction.com surveyed expect foreclosure and REO inflow to increase in five of seven U.S. regions. According to the report, 89% said they expect government-insured foreclosure and REO inflow to increase in 2020, the highest among four product types provided as options in the survey.The majority of survey respondents said they expect foreclosure and REO inflow to increase in 2020 in five of seven U.S. regions provided as options in the survey. The only two exceptions were the Central and North Central regions. Respondents were split evenly between increased inflow and decreased inflow in both these regions.“Most in the default servicing industry expect government-insured loans to be the primary source of increased foreclosure inflow in 2020, even in the absence of a widespread recession or housing downturn,” said Jesse Roth, SVP of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development with Auction.com. “That’s a rational conclusion given the rising risk profile of FHA-backed loans originated in the last five years.” About Author: Seth Welborn Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Foreclosure Starts Near All-Time Low Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: default Delinquent Foreclosure Previous: Fed, Treasury, GSEs Work to Enhance Liquidity, Credit Next: Is a Recession Already Here?
