Our Forensic Loan Audit (or Mortgage Forensic Audit) Targets Predatory Lending Practices –
There are specific laws and guidelines that must be followed when a lender underwrites and funds a mortgage. If your lender failed to stay within those guidelines set by federal and state lawmakers, you could have a strong legal case. Our loan audit division will perform a forensic loan audit during which we review all of your loan documents and then determine whether you have fallen victim to predatory lending practices.
Your loan may contain civil law violations uncovered by the mortgage forensic audit (e.g. predatory lending practices). All mortgages must comply with fair lending laws and be void or predatory lending practices. Any error or omission on the part of a lender or their agents constitutes a violation. Our mortgage forensic loan audit division verifies compliance with these laws and helps stop foreclosure.
Our Mortgage Forensic Audit or Forensic Loan Audit will determine if any STATE or FEDERAL laws were violated during the origination and/or servicing of your Mortgage.
Your mortgage will be scrutinized for:
Predatory lending practices or deceptive lending practices
Violations under state and federal laws including RESPA, TILA or HOEPA
Consumer Protection Law violations including unfair, abusive, or fraudulent business practices
Violations relating to how your fees and/or interest was calculated
When any violations are found in your loan documents, The Foreclosure Law Center may use these violations to:
