A report this week revealed that some of the top U.S. banks, including Bank of America and Citigroup, have failed to fully comply with the government settlement to correct mortgage servicing abuses. Bank of America failed to file accurate documents in bankruptcy proceedings and Citigroup’s mortgage unit failed to notify borrowers about missing documents within 30 days of a request for a short sale.
According to the monitor, the two banks have submitted plans to fix the problems and are in the process of correcting the failures. JPMorgan Chase was also cited in the recent report. The report revealed that the bank failed in some instances in 2013 to make decisions on borrower applications to modify loans within a timetable required, and it failed a test that measures whether a pre-foreclosure notice sent to customers was accurate.
