A.G. Schneiderman To Sue Wells Fargo & Bank Of America For Violating National Mortgage Settlement


    NEW YORK, NY – May 7, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced his intention to sue Bank of America and Wells Fargo for repeatedly violating the terms of the National Mortgage Settlement. Signed in 2012, the Settlement required the five largest mortgage servicing banks in the United States to improve their customer service practices by complying with new mortgage servicing rules, known as the Servicing Standards. Among these are four standards dictating the timeline for banks to process mortgage modification applications. Attorney General Schneiderman’s office has documented 339 violations of those standards by Wells Fargo and Bank of America since October 2012
