December 7 Full Press Release on CFPB Action Against RMS… Civil Penalty $325,000

CFPB Takes Action Against Reverse Mortgage Companies for Deceptive Advertising

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) took action against three reverse mortgage companies for deceptive advertisements, including claiming that consumers could not lose their homes. The CFPB is ordering American Advisors Group, Reverse Mortgage Solutions, and Aegean Financial to cease deceptive advertising practices, implement systems to ensure they are complying with all laws, and pay penalties.

“These companies tricked consumers into believing they could not lose their homes with a reverse mortgage,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “All mortgage brokers and lenders need to abide by federal advertising disclosure requirements in promoting their products.”

A reverse mortgage is a special type of home loan that allows homeowners who are 62 or older to access the equity they have built up in their homes and defer payment of the loan until they pass away, sell, or move out. The loan proceeds are generally provided to the borrowers as lump-sum payments, monthly payments, or as lines of credit. Homeowners remain responsible for payment of taxes, insurance and home maintenance, among other obligations.

The Mortgage Acts and Practices Advertising Rule prohibits misleading claims in mortgage advertising. In addition, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act prohibits institutions from engaging in deceptive acts or practices, including with regard to advertising of consumer financial products or services.

American Advisors Group

American Advisors Group, headquartered in Orange, Calif., is licensed in 49 states and the District of Columbia. It is the largest reverse mortgage lender in the United States. The company ran television advertisements almost daily and disseminated its information kit to approximately 1 million consumers. The information kit included a DVD and several brochures with information about reverse mortgage products.

Through its investigation, the CFPB found that since January 2012 American Advisors Group’s advertisements misrepresented that consumers could not lose their home and that they would have the right to stay in their home for the rest of their lives. The company also falsely told potential customers that they would have no monthly payments and that with a reverse mortgage they would be able to pay off all debts. In fact, consumers with a reverse mortgage still have payments and can default and lose their home if they fail to comply with the loan terms. These terms require, among other things, paying property taxes, making homeowner’s insurance payments, and paying for property maintenance. Moreover, a reverse mortgage is a debt and therefore cannot be used to eliminate all of a consumer’s debt.

Under the terms of today’s consent order, the company must make clear and prominent disclosures in its reverse mortgage advertisements and implement a system to ensure it is following all laws. It will also pay a civil penalty of $400,000.

Reverse Mortgage Solutions

Reverse Mortgage Solutions, headquartered in Houston, Texas, is licensed to conduct business in 48 states. The company marketed its product through various media, including television, radio, print, direct mail, and the Internet.

Through its investigation, the CFPB found that since January 2012 Reverse Mortgage Solutions’ advertisements misrepresented that consumers could not lose their home and that they would have the right to stay in their home for the rest of their lives. The company also falsely told potential customers that they would have no payments with a reverse mortgage and that they would “always retain ownership” and “can’t be forced to leave.” In fact, consumers with a reverse mortgage still have payments and can default and lose their home if they fail to comply with the loan terms. These terms require, among other things, paying property taxes, making homeowner’s insurance payments, and paying for property maintenance.

The CFPB also alleges that the company misrepresented that heirs would inherit the home, without disclosing any conditions of the inheritance. In fact, heirs frequently are not able to keep the home after the death of a consumer with a reverse mortgage. Heirs are only allowed to retain ownership of the home after the consumer’s death if they either repay the reverse mortgage or pay 95 percent of the assessed value of the home.

The company also created a false sense of urgency to buy the reverse mortgage product and misrepresented that time limits constrained the availability of a reverse mortgage. For example, one call script required representatives to tell potential customers that if they didn’t call back by close of business, they would “turn your file down and you will miss out on a tremendous money-saving opportunity.” In fact, it was not a limited time offer. Lastly, the company misrepresented that a reverse mortgage could “eliminate debt.” In fact, a reverse mortgage is a debt and therefore cannot be used to eliminate all of a consumer’s debt.

Under the terms of today’s consent order, the company must make clear and prominent disclosures in its reverse mortgage advertisements and implement a system to ensure it is following all laws. It will also pay a civil penalty of $325,000.

REO BROKERS IN MARYLAND- PROPERTY PRESERVATION SERVICES

REO BROKERS IN MARYLAND- PROPERTY PRESERVATION SERVICES

REO BROKERS  in Maryland must be licensed, insured, and experienced prior to accepting work orders/listings from HomePath HomesSAFEGUARD, and other preservation vendors  authorized to sale REO and/or properties in foreclosure. Why no improvement in the streamlining of the REO and maryland eviction process pertaining to foreclosure?

Over the last 10+ years there has been no visible change to the property conditions of FHA insured properties throughout the DC Metro-Baltimore Region. The properties listed by REO and full service brokerages contain bulk trash, extensive damages from neglect/abandonment, mold, and other hazardous material waste. Brownstone Diamond Properties provided initial services for properties listed by licensed brokerages in Maryland serving Greenbelt, Beltsville, Capitol Heights, District Heights, Forestville, Landlover, Palmer Park, Glendale, Glenarden, Lanham, College Park, Laurel, Cottage City, Riverdale, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Clinton, Temple Hills, Oxon Hill, and Suitland.  Most listing agents state the price not negotiable.  Many banks use a BPO as a set price even if the appraisal report show the depreciated value as-is.

MD REO AGENTS

Many agents Brownstone Diamond Properties worked with in the field lacked background experience in loss mitigation, short sales, and foreclosures or had no interest in a subject property based on the bulk inventory assigned referring buyers to Fannie Mae website for bidding instructions.  Gregory Bennett with Exit Bennett Realty supervises over 100+ agents with a revoked Broker License which has an affect on the industry and inventory of short sales, bank-owned property.  We found many of the agents licensed under Exit Bennett Realty supervision and ownership can careless of his revoked.  Gregory Bennett offer agents, the public and their clients free lunch and learn sessions in Greenbelt for Real Estate Investors. How many REO listing brokers in Maryland?

Who is responsible for the initial services and upkeep of vacant REO Bank-Owned and foreclosed properties insured by FHA?   Which agency regulate foreclosures and REO Servicers?

Has any found SALVATION ARMY , United Communites Against Poverty, or a HOPE Housing Counselor to be helpful in a housing crises?  Please share your experience in working with either of these organization.

 

 

7600 Block of Muncy Road- Reverse Mortgage Solutions Inc and National Field Network-FORECLOSURE

7600 Block of Muncy Road- Reverse Mortgage Solutions Inc and National Field Network-FORECLOSURE

Reverse Mortgage Solutions Inc and National Field Network abandoned the servicing of the above unit at the 7600 Block of Muncy Road and Greenleaf Avenue Hyattsville, Maryland 20785. Reverse Mortgage Solutions claimed the property was sold through a foreclosure auction on July 6, 2016 at the Prince George’s County courthouse. That information was later found to be false.    Prince George’s County Property Standards Enforcement unit cited inhabitable property conditions and issued a notice to clean within 30 days in August 2016.  Obviously, the dwelling was not abated within specified date usually 30 days from date of notice.  Reverse Mortgage Solutions has not registered the property with PG County Foreclosure Registry.  Will Reverse Mortgage Solutions Inc continue using the services of National Field Network? Will Safeguard Properties service Reverse Mortgage Solutions work orders?  Will the listing broker be responsible for Prince George’s County code violations.

 

 

Property Preservation- FHA Insured Mortgages and HUD/Investor guidelines in Loss Mitigation

Property Preservation- FHA Insured Mortgages and HUD/Investor guidelines in Loss Mitigation

Palmer Park, Maryland 20785. We received a call back in March 2016 pertaining to a disabled owner occupant,lock change, and eviction proceeding on Muncy Rd.

Reverse Mortgage Solutions Inc hired a legal representative to file a lost note affidavit to proceed with foreclosure on an equity line of credit (“living senior owner occupant”), National Field Network secured and neglected the dwelling, Listing Broker assigned, eviction notice and new landlord info given to occupants with no response to property condition, denial of hazardous insurance and property nuisances.

Brownstone Diamond Properties a former preservation contractor for another National Mortgage field servicer says RMS,its’ substitute trustees ,&its’ agents process was premature and violate FHA guidelines and regulations for FHA insured dwellings with mortgages. The dwelling should’ve been in conveyance condition on or before 09/08/2016. PG County require mortgage lenders to register vacant and occupied properties in foreclosure. How many preservation workers in your neighborhood has been unable to disclose who created and authorized the work order for assignment completion? Safeguard doesn’t allow that disclosure in Maryland and District of Columbia. Safeguard and National Field Network Inc, in New Jersey does not comprehend legal process and federal regulations due to the fact they hold subcontractors liability for any and all claims discovered in the preservation process.

Forestville, Maryland 20747-November 27, 2016 at 7:30am. Brownstone Diamond Properties a former property preservation contractor for a National Mortgage Field Servicer-SAFEGUARD PROPERTIES. We found many of the properties were abandoned by the banks /field servicers, damaged, vandalized, hazardous, out-of-code, and evictions without PG County Sheriff department standby saving banks millions over a 10 year period in renovations, curing property housing code violations cited, and court fee/cost. Foreclosure and eviction has been an extreme crisis over the last decade in Prince George’s County-Forestville, District Heights, Capitol Heights, Hyattsville, Lanham, College Park, Glen Dale, Riverdale, Laurel, Greenbelt, Cottage City, Landover, Glenarden, Oxon Hill to include Baltimore City. In Maryland Law, there is NO RIGHT TO FIRST REFUSAL. The interesting part is how Prince George’s County Judges rule in Landlord and Tenant Court in Hyattsville, Maryland when a party not represented by legal representation rather a landlord, owner, or tenant.  Prince George’s County does not protect victim rights!

UNITED COMMUNITIES AGAINST POVERTY receive private, corporate, federal, and state funding to operate Shepherds Cove and HUD approved services. There has been no improvement in UCAP service area(s) or improvement to their emergency housing facility. UCAP has turned away many families and children to include evictions without District Court of Maryland; yet request donations and volunteers to continue its operations.  ucap

Over a 10-year period with all the federal and state funding to non-profit organizations; Prince George’s County, Maryland should have better curb appeal to include its roads and highways.  Stay tuned! for additional information on property preservation and HUD deadlines for vacant and foreclosed units for FHA mortgage servicers
