Ocala, Florida (PressExposure) April 20, 2011 -- A number of Florida law firms who formerly processed foreclosures for big banks are now under investigation by the Florida Attorney General. The Attorney General stated that the law firms used "unfair, deceptive and unconscionable practices."
New information exposing companies for forging signatures and fabricating lost documents has come into public view. Lynn Szymoniak, a forgery expert said in a 60 Minutes report, "It was common practice in the last few years to flood the courts with these documents." A satellite office run by Alliance Legal Group in the Ocala area has opened to help local residents. The website, ForeclosureAttorneyOcala.com offers more information on the services the office provides.
Scott Pelley, in a recent 60 Minutes report, said, "There were a million foreclosures last year and there will be another million this year." What makes this even more alarming for residents of Florida is a report by Les Christie of CNNMoney.com, who said that nearly twenty percent of Florida residencies are now vacant. That is one out of every five residencies. Florida homeowners threatened with foreclosure are beginning to seek legal help. Because answers may lie hidden in their documents, professional legal assistance may be advisable. Alliance Legal Group now offers a free loan audit that can root out errors, lending violation and fraud contained in loan and foreclosure documentation. For those who want to learn more, a description of this free audit can be found on ForeclosureAttorneyOcala.com.
"Banks can't find the ownership documents," said Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes when referring to proof of mortgage loan assignment. He also said, "Caught in a jam of their own making, some companies appear to be resorting to forgery and phony paperwork to throw people- down on their luck- out of their homes." Florida residents need to take positive action to avoid becoming part of the disturbing statistic that is sweeping the nation, and which is hitting Florida harder than most. Knowing what home loan papers contain is a vital first step.
