If you are having a problem with your mortgage company that you have been unable to solve on your own, contact our Chicago mortgage company errors attorneys for a free case evaluation. We offer a contingency basis for most cases.

The Chicago law firm of Edelman, Combs, Latturner & Goodwin, LLC, handles many types of cases against mortgage companies including:

  • Improper handling of escrow accounts, including setting escrow payments too high, failing to pay for taxes or insurance, or other errors
  • Improper credit reporting by mortgage companies
  • Damage to credit scores caused by mortgage companies reporting false information about your payment history to the credit bureaus
  • Problems caused by attempts to obtain a loan modification, including the failure to provide a written notice of the denial of a loan modification application, or damage to your credit score caused by improper credit reporting during a loan modification
  • Failure to properly credit payments in a timely manner
  • Adding unfair or unauthorized fees to your payments or loan balance
  • Unfair practices in connection with delinquent mortgages, including demanding foreclosure fees and expenses that have not yet been incurred
  • Predatory refinancing practices
  • Mortgage foreclosure defense when the borrower has a good defense
  • Failure of mortgage companies to correct errors or respond to qualified written requests from homeowners
  • Harassing you with collection calls when you are not behind on payments

Our lawyers are not afraid to take on the largest mortgage companies, including Bank of America, Chase Home Finance, Wells Fargo, Homeward Residential, Ocwen and Citicorp.

If you have a good claim, our lawyers can file suit on your behalf to force the mortgage company to correct the error and may be able to obtain money damages for you as well. If your mortgage company is refusing to listen to you and correct its errors, you need our tough, experienced lawyers on your side.

New Laws Protecting Mortgage Borrowers

Although now is a difficult time for many homeowners, the good news is that Congress has recently strengthened the consumer protection laws that apply to mortgage loans. Some of the unfair mortgage practices our law firm has been fighting for years will be illegal under the new laws.

New disclosure laws are also in place, and mortgage companies have to provide a new, more informative version of the good faith estimate when they apply for a loan. It will now be easier to pursue mortgage companies who attempt to increase the charges listed on the good faith estimate at the closing. If you have recently obtained a new mortgage loan or refinanced a mortgage loan and believe you may have been the victim of an unfair practice, contact our firm for a free consultation.
