California Attorney General reaches settlement with wells fargo

Real Estate Attorney with The Law Offices of Steven C. Vondran, P.C. Attorney at Law



On December 20, 2010 the California Attorney General reached a settlement agreement with Wells Fargo regarding the pick-a-pay loan program. The settlement requires Wells Fargo to provide loan modifications worth more than $2 billion to thousands of California homeowners with "pick-a-pay" loans and to pay an additional $32 million to thousands of borrowers who lost their homes through foreclosure.


Wells Fargo will offer affordable loan modifications to an estimated 14,900 California borrowers with “pick-a-pay” loans made by World Savings or Wachovia. <strong><em>Many of the modifications will include significant principal forgiveness</em></strong>. The total value of the modifications mandated by the settlement is projected to be more than $2 billion.


According to the California Attorney General, <span style="text-decoration: underline;">borrowers eligible for loan modifications should get a notice from Wells Fargo within the next two months</span>. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Borrowers who suffered foreclosures should be notified during the first six months of 2011.</span> This may be great news for California borrowers who have a “pick-a-pay” loan or who were foreclosed on because they couldn’t afford their “pick-a-pay” mortgages.

Diane DePould, Esq.

Called your office yesterday and left a message again today.  Tried modification, was declined after almost 18 months. Had filed a suit against lender (Wells Fargo) which was removed to Federal Court with a pending motion to dismiss, filed a TRO on the sale which was to be heard before the oral argument but judge denied because my counsel's moving papers were weak. No ruling on the Motion to Dismiss, immediatley entered Chapter 13. Have an appraisal below the first (I have a second WF HELOC for about $190k and first at $450k with everything added in).  So don't know if that will get rid of second or not.  Also I am part of this Pick and pay settlement with State of CA and WF.  They offered me nothing. Do you think you can negotiate a settlement with WF?
