ABA STATEMENT ON MORTGAGE SETTLEMENT

-

By Frank Keating, president and CEO, American Bankers Association

WASHINGTON, D.C. – February 10, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — “Today’s agreement marks an important milestone in resolving mortgage concerns, allowing these five institutions – essential providers of mortgage services across the country – to look to the future with clarity and commitment to customers.”

“ABA is evaluating the full settlement to ensure its enforcement does not further constrain credit availability and that its terms are not applied outside this agreement. This settlement addresses a distinct group of mortgages offered during a specific timeframe. It would be a mistake to regard the settlement as applying to mortgage practices industry wide.”
