States Plan to Investigate Mortgage Servicers

The National Association of Realtors® reports that a coalition of attorneys general from as many as 40 states is expected to announce Wednesday the launch of a joint investigation of the mortgage-servicing industry.

The attorneys general say they intend to first determine the scale of the problem and correct the issues. Several of them also have said that they believe one of the results of the investigation could be an agreement that forces lenders and servicers to make mass loan modifications or adopt principal forgiveness plans.

Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray says, "I think the mortgage-servicing firms need to understand that they face real exposure now, and they would be well advised to take this very seriously, to clean this up by doing loan workouts to keep people in their homes, which up till now they've just paid lip-service to."

it almost appears that you're starting to turn a Q&A board into your personal blog. One could argue that you're almost entering spam territory.
