Independent Foreclosure Review Program: Could It Help You?

Over the past several years literally millions of Americans were forced to give up their homes due to foreclosure. You may be one of them. As if that weren't bad enough, you may also have been the victim of unfair lender practices during the process. If that happened to you during 2009 or 2010 you should definitely look into the Independent Foreclosure Review program. This program was jointly started by the Federal Reserve System and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. And you only have until December 31 of 2012 to see if you might benefit from it!

Fortunately that is easy to do. There is a special hotline you can call, open every Monday to Friday between 8AM and 10PM eastern time and Saturdays from 8AM to 5PM. The toll-free number is 1-888-952-9105. If you qualify you can submit a request for review online and you must do so by 12/31/2012. To be eligible you must have gone through the foreclosure process in during the period 1/01/2009 and 12/31/2010. The home being foreclosed must have been your primary residence (as opposed to a rental property or vacation home). In addition your mortgage must have been serviced by one of those on a list of close to 30 major banks. If it sounds like this may apply to you, call now and find out if you may be due some financial compensation!
