HSBC agrees to $765 million settlement with DOJ over pre-crisis mortgages

An HSBC spokesperson confirmed that the bank has reached a settlement in principle with the DOJ, but said that the bank will not be commenting beyond what is in the release.

The DOJ said that it will not be commenting on the matter.

Additionally, the bank said that it reached a settlement agreement with the Massachusetts Attorney General over the state’s investigations into the bank’s mortgage securitization activities during the same time period.

While HSBC did not provide any details on the nature of either of the new settlements, the state of Massachusetts issued a release on Monday that confirms the bank’s settlement with the state.

According to the office of Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, HSBC will pay $26.8 million to settle allegations that the bank “purchased and securitized unfair residential mortgage loans” that were in violation of state law.

Healey’s office states that HSBC did not originate the subprime loans in question, but did purchase the loans from lenders and securitize them.

3rd Circuit says business meets “principle purpose” definition of collector under the FDCPA

On August 7, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit held that a company using the mail and wires to collect “any debts” meets the “principle purpose” definition under the FDCPA. According to the opinion, after homeowners defaulted on a home equity line of credit, the debt was sold and the mortgage assigned to a company whose sole business is the purchase of debts entered into by third parties and collecting on those debts. After several attempts to collect the debt, the company filed a foreclosure action in Pennsylvania. The homeowners contacted the company requesting loan statements to resolve the debt but the company refused to provide statements. The homeowners later received a collection email with an even higher amount than previously communicated and filed an action alleging the company violated the FDCPA. The lower court rejected the company’s arguments that it was not a debt collector under the FDCPA’s “principle purpose” definition—any person “who uses any instrumentality of interstate commerce or the mails in any business, the principal purpose of which is the collection of any debts”—and held that the company violated the act.

Do you still have alternative choice after having a mortgage in principle?

It is said that you should get a mortgage in principle before looking for a property. But does it mean that you can get back only to the lender who gave you the mortgage in principle? If you have found your desired house, can you find another lender?

I think you mean a pre-qualification, which is an indication to the seller, that someone will actually lend you $$ and you are not wasting the sellers time.
