Ocwen doesn’t have the best reputation among consumers, especially those who have been forced into the foreclosure process with this lender. Most homeowners that have become Ocwen foreclosure victims had no choice in having Ocwen has their lender. Their loan was most likely sold to Ocwen from another servicer, such as Bank of America or Chase, which does not require homeowner approval. In many situations, Ocwen started the foreclosure process almost immediately after purchasing the loan. This forces homeowners to take action immediately if they want to stop foreclosure and save their home.
The Ocwen foreclosure process is more aggressive than most. In addition to pushing homeowners into foreclosure so that they can sell the home at auction, they are notorious for having awful customer service that makes it impossible for a homeowner to find out the real status of the their loan situation. Getting in touch with someone at Ocwen over the phone only adds to the frustration for most homeowners that are doing everything they can to save their home. In many cases, homeowners are trying to get in touch to discuss the loan modification review they had with their prior lender before Ocwen bought the loan – but in some cases, the documents get lost in the transition.
Any new lender that purchases an existing mortgage loan has to honor the contract and agreement. For many homeowners, they found out that their loan modification paperwork did not make it to Ocwen during the transfer. This can cause serious problems, as the lender will typically put the responsibility back on the homeowner to submit a new package. Not only is this time consuming, but it may be illegal. Ocwen has been sued successfully by homeowners for predatory lending violations like these by homeowners fighting to keep their home.
