Lawsuits against Wells Fargo Home Mortgage

Do You Settle Lawsuits Against Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Loan Owners?

Lawsuits against Wells Fargo home mortgage lenders have risen dramatically over the past few years. Many people were hurt while trying to purchase a home during the mortgage boom and these lawsuits were used to cover those costs. While no one was hurt due to fraud, many people lost money when they applied for and were approved for loans that they could not afford.

Other suits were filed against home mortgage companies when they were instructed to increase the interest rates on adjustable rate mortgages without warning.

These are called “roving rates” and they will often change without warning from time to time. When this happens, homeowners will suddenly find that they can’t make their payments and suddenly have to file for bankruptcy. This is why we’ve seen such an increase in lawsuits against Wells Fargo.

Some people sued because they lost their homes and had to sell them at auctions to pay their lenders.

Others sued because they could not refinance their home mortgage loan. Some people sued because they made the wrong decision and got into too much debt. The list goes on, as there have been many cases that were unfortunately involved with Wells Fargo.

It seems that these lawsuits are becoming more rampant because of the state of the economy.

Banks were devastated when the housing market crash took place and many lost their jobs. At the same time, Congress passed the mortgage bailout bill and Wells Fargo were one of the big beneficiaries. They were able to rescue their business and make deals with mortgage lenders that were less than favorable.

Naturally, people are upset because they lost money when they signed on the dotted line.

Some have even filed lawsuits against Wells Fargo because they feel they were victims of predatory lending and are asking for damages. The sad part of this situation is that predatory lending in general has a lot of lawyers who make a good living suing people over home mortgage problems.

If you have a lawsuit pending with Wells Fargo, you might be advised to consult an attorney who specializes in these lawsuits.

You will need to discuss the details of your case and determine if it is worth pursuing. A good attorney can tell you if you have a valid claim and what you can expect in terms of compensation. There is no doubt that some amount of compensation is deserved to people who have been negatively affected by Wells Fargo and other mortgage companies.

None of those 3 occurred. HELP. My phone number is (215) 527-39xx.

  3. These mortgage companies and mortgage servicers are getting over on Consumers and we the consumer does not have anyone to step-up and fight, these mortgage companies. I have a problem with CitiMortgage, Inc, of the same sort.

  4. Count me in. I was a victim of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage as well. I had the infamous “pick a pay loan” from World Bank on my home of 23 years. I got concerned and World Bank agreed to work with me, but the next time I contacted them, they had been purchased by Wachovia Bank. Wachovia pretended to help me modify my Loan, but would make me start over every 30 days and then Wells Fargo bought my mortgage loan – and at a discounted rate I am sure. I continue and was encouraged by Wells Faeo to keep trying for a modification. I faxed so many papers to both Wachovia and Wells Fargo Bank for 5 years that I was seriously going to wallpaper my entire house with it. It was ridiculous! I finally was told that my modification request was being sent to their “top” mortgage modification decision person – a woman – and that I would have an answer, but that it would take her a week and she would let me know. Sure enough, I received a call from her office to let me know that they would not be modifying my loan because “I signed the original documents”.
    What? Yes, I signed them, so did everyone else. In fact I signed in a noisy restaurant with a witness who was very impatient and distracted to the point that I felt I was being highly manipulated and was extremely uncomfortable.
    This was my home and for the banks to pull the “negative NPV”
    bullshit and then the “ you signed the original documents bullshit was unbelievable. The minute I was told that, I sold my house by paying the realtors $60,00” from the sales proceeds and Wrlls Fargo took an unbelievable amount so that Ai was unable to rebuy a home in my community. Then Wells Fargo reported to the credit bureau that they foreclosed on me, which was a lie because I sold it myself and paid them in full +. I asked them to remove it, but they wouldn’t and so I took them to all claims court because when I bought another home in a different community, I had to get a hard money loan for the first year, so I sued them for $10,000. and won. They claimed I had no mortgage with them and they don’t know who I am and asked for a re-trial and sent a high powered attorney from South Carolina ( I am in California) to tell me that they will settled for $1,000, which is better than nothing because “ the statute of limitations for mortgages was 2 years. I had looked it up and it said 3 years, but O was intimidated by this lawyer who most likely lied, and ended up settling for $1,000. She even made some fake phone calls to her “boss” to try and get me more, but she “couldn’t get ahold of them.”
    It’s been a few years now but the whole experience still eats away at my whole person and my ability to trust banks or any financial institution really. I would love to have some justice on my behalf and others who were hurt by them.

  5.
