Deadline for Foreclosure Reviews Today

Home owners who faced foreclosure in 2009 or 2010 have until Monday, Dec. 31 to request a free review of their case, which may uncover that they are eligible for compensation for errors in the filing of their paperwork. 

The deadline has previously been extended three times due to low response from eligible home owners. More than 4 million notices were mailed to eligible home owners a year ago. So far, only 356,000 of those home owners have requested reviews as of Dec. 13, according to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. 

The reviewers are looking for potential foreclosure errors, excessive reviews, erroneously denied loan modifications, and wrongful foreclosures. Home owners may be eligible for compensation up to $100,000.

Review requests can be submitted online at independentforeclosurereview.com or by calling 888-952-9105.
