Home > Lawsuits > Homecomings Financial Loan Transaction Fees and Charges Class Action
February 8 2008
A nationwide class action lawsuit has been filed against the mortgage service company for allegedly engaging in a scheme of illegal, unfair, unlawful, and deceptive business practices that violate both federal and state laws in the servicing of home-secured loan transactions. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota and claims Homecomings Financial collects improper fees and charges for unnecessary and unauthorized property inspections, and unauthorized and excessive fees for using its electronic payment processing services.
The class action also claims Homecomings Financial force-placed hazard insurance by purchasing insurance for the borrower's property and charging the borrower. The suit alleges, "Homecomings assesses improper fees, costs, and charges to maximize its profits, often putting homeowners into default status, then demands payment from the homeowners on the improper charges, collecting them from homeowners' monthly loan payments, loan payoffs, and even through foreclosure sales."
"The lawsuit was filed on behalf of all persons nationwide whose home mortgages were serviced by Homecomings, and whose loans were improperly assessed late fees, or were wrongly assessed charges for force-placed insurance, unnecessary and unauthorized property inspections, and the use of Homecomings' electronic payment processing service."

I was placed in a repayment program, my mortagage ended up being $800.00 a month. I worked two jobs to pay the mortgage and they still claimed I was behind. I hired a lawyer, and he verified that all reciepts were accounted for, and I was not behind. They foreclosed anyway!

Terms of loan changed. Agreed to 30 year fixed conventional ended up with a 30 year interest only, unethical and deceptive. Used to charge large fees to pay online. They don't pay my insurance premium each year which leaves me with lapse in coverage (escrow account with Homecomings).

We have been marked as being past 30 late with payments when we were told by Homecomings not to make the payment because they were doing a loan modification. We called and asked several times if we needed to make the payment and we were always told not to make it. We have also been charged late fees and other fees that we do not know what they are. Homecomings refuses to show us any paperwork or payment history and they have told us they are not willing to help us at all.
