At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone in Arizona whose late mortgage payment was listed on their credit report and anyone in California who had a deficient payment stemming from a foreclosure or short sale listed on their credit report.
What’s Going On?
Arizona and California have anti-deficiency laws that prevent lenders from collecting delinquent mortgage payments, yet these payments may still be showing up on consumers’ credit reports. Attorneys are now investigating whether class action lawsuits can be filed over the issue.
How Can a Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit could help remove late payments and deficiencies from consumers’ credit reports and provide compensation for any damage to their credit.
