Mistakes by a mortgage lender could be the difference between saving a home or losing it in foreclosure. Correcting errors in accounting is both time consuming and difficult. Most lenders do not take the time to correct mistakes even when they are pointed out by the borrower. You may need legal advice if you suspect accounting fraud or malpractice by your mortgage lender or servicer. It is often crucial to correct errors in accounting to make sure that a lender does not report delinquencies and hurt a borrower’s credit.
Some of the most common accounting errors occur when a loan is transferred from one lender or servicer to another. In many cases, the new servicer does not have accurate and updated payment records. Sometimes a new servicer forecloses on the basis of bad accounting. Mistakes are also common when a borrower makes payments for a trial modification or stops making payments during a forbearance agreement. There are often errors that affect the trial balance after a borrower has been making payments for a loan modification.
