The plaintiffs in these three class action lawsuits claim that a letter sent by or on behalf of Caliber Home Loans, U.S. Bank Trust, and LSF9 Master Participation Trust violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA.
Specifically, the homeowners say these letters reportedly suggested that disputes of the mortgage debt need to be made in writing, directed dispute letters to a Dallas Texas address but the also stated that written requests be sent to an Oklahoma City address. The letters also were allegedly in violation of the FDCPA by using wording that recipients may be charged for a payoff statement as permitted by law.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits the collection of debt that it cannot validate. Essentially, by wrongfully attempting to collect on mortgage debts which the defendants do not own or cannot validate, they are in violation of the FDCPA.
Each of the named defendants, including Caliber Home Loans does not admit liability and claims they entered into agreement to avoid the expense of further litigation. You can view the Class Notice here.
