The CFPB is currently pursuing a lawsuit against Ocwen loan servicing over alleged misdeeds and overcharging of consumers. The suit alleges that Ocwen violated federal mortgage servicing law by charging customers for Broker Price Opinions and Hybrid Valuations, which contained undisclosed markups. A complaint filed by the CFPB will not find a company guilty of violating the law, but will only provide relief to consumers.
The Ocwen lawsuit claims that the company concealed material facts and terms of the loan.
This sounds like a standard fraud charge, as the terms of the loans are set out in the loan documents. In the case of unauthorized charges, these charges were either prohibited by the loan documents or by state law. Nevertheless, a settlement may prove that Ocwen did wrong. To date, no court ruling has been made on the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims that Ocwen misrepresented incurred charges that were owed by borrowers. The complaint does not identify which practices are illegal but lists several examples. The claims list a variety of claims, and most are state or federal violations. The third claim, “fraudulent concealment,” maybe the most serious, but there are no other examples. The complaint does not specify whether this charge goes beyond common law fraud.
