California Mortgage Escrow Accounts Investigation
Mortgage Escrow Class Action Lawsuit
Our consumer finance lawyers are investigating California mortgage lenders for their administration of mortgage escrow accounts, which are accounts that lenders sometimes set up to cover recurring charges such as taxes.
State law requires mortgage lenders to pay 2 percent interest to borrowers on funds held in escrow accounts for residential mortgages. Due to the current low-interest-rate environment, many lenders are finding it hard to meet guaranteed rates for their customers. In response, some lenders have avoided paying interest on escrow accounts entirely. This practice is unfair to borrowers, effectively increases their mortgage payments and costs, and violates state law.
If you are a California resident with a mortgage escrow account and you suspect that your lender has not been paying interest to the account, you may have a claim for compensation.
