New Attorney General's Foreclosure Settlement Could Help You

By now you may have heard of the $25 billion National Mortgage Servicing Settlement.  With the cooperative efforts of 49 state attorney generals, the Federal government reached an agreement that is holding the nation's five largest loan servicers (Ally Financial, Bank of America, Citigroup, J.P. Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo) accountable for their actions.  The settlement is requiring them to provide relief to distressed homeowners and those who lost their home from January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2011.
