Court Approves Historic $25 Billion Servicing Settlement

Last week, U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia Rosemary Collyer signed documents to approve the $25 billion mortgage servicing settlement with the nation’s top five mortgage servicers: Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Ally Financial.

“Yesterday’s court approval of the historic $25 billion mortgage servicing settlement is a victory for American homeowners,” said U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, following the announcement. “We know that when we work together and put partisanship aside we can accomplish big things for the American people. And while we applaud yesterday’s actions by the court, we know that now the real work begins to hold these servicers accountable and ensure that the nearly 2 million homeowners who are expected to receive help and relief actually get it.”

“From day one the settlement was about helping homeowners, and specifically it was about helping those homeowners who suffered at the hands of the practices of these servicers. Moreover, while we know that servicing did not cause the mortgage crises it made the problem worse.

Moving forward, lenders now have servicing standards that will protect borrowers. Service members who suffered will receive compensation and be protected moving forward. This settlement and other critical actions taken by the Administration are significant steps toward rebuilding our housing market and making an America built to last.”
