Attorney General Reminds Oklahomans of Approaching Deadline to Apply for Compensation from Mortgage Settlement Fund
Oklahoma deadline two months from Friday
OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Scott Pruitt Tuesday issued a reminder for Oklahoma residents who may qualify for compensation from a fund created by a settlement between Oklahoma and five of the nation’s largest mortgage service providers.
Oklahoma homeowners who have been harmed by unfair and deceptive servicing practices such as robo-signing and dual-tracking are encouraged to submit an application and relevant documentation to the AG’s Public Protection Unit.
Applicants must be Oklahoma residents and complete their application by Sept. 13.
“We want to hear from Oklahoma homeowners who were harmed financially or may have lost their homes,” Pruitt said. “We need to make sure they are compensated for the harm they suffered.”
So far, the Attorney General’s Office has received 173 applications for compensation from the fund created by the Oklahoma Settlement, which provides $18.6 million to help Oklahoma families affected during the foreclosure crisis.
