A forensic loan audit answers compliance violations!

Our forensic loan audits are comprehensive and thorough. An in-depth forensic audit helps us identify fraudulence in your loan documentation so we can use it as legal leverage to hold your bank accountable. If there are any violations or signs of fraud in your mortgage, the forensic loan audit will identify them. With the law on your side, we can help you to get out of a bad mortgage and remain in your home.

What is a forensic loan audit?All mortgages must comply with fair lending laws. Any error or omission on the part of a lender or their agents constitutes a violation. Our forensic loan auditors verify compliance with the following laws:

  • State and Federal Predatory Lending Laws
  • Real Estate Settlement & Procedures Act (RESPA)
  • Truth in Lending Act (TILA)
  • Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA)
  • Fair Housing Act (FHA)
  • Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) and more

Mistakes such as these can compel banks to work with you as opposed to foreclosure.

Why do you want a forensic loan audit? Simply put, to create legal leverage. With this kind of leverage, your lender will not only have to listen, but also be held accountable for the laws that were violated. It has been estimated that over 85% of adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) reveal violations in RESPA (Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act), TILA (Truth in Lending Act), predatory lending, and real estate and mortgage fraud. In some cases, it is alleged that you were set up to fail from the start.
