I enjoy your site very much, – infact, I check it every day for the latest informatin on how to solve my problem.
When I was attempting to pull $$ out of my house when I was out of work, I was contacted by a housing lender. When I told them that I was temp. out of work, they wanted to know if my wife worked. (My wife is a homemaker, but had a small cleaning business on occasion). We told them NO, however the persisted and called us back several times. They took my wife’s business card to show employment–although we had no W2 to back it up. We were honest with them, but now feel that we were being led to slaughter. I had a VA note, but when New Century got involved, it reset everything and we re-did another 30-year note. New Century–almost overnight sold (or assigned) it to Ocwen. After all these years, Ocwen has us on a ARM and told me that I make too much $$ to refinance under the Obama plan, but would qualify under their plan. I submitted paperwork, W2, paystubs, etc and were told that we were approved. (They didn’t tell me what year).
As I am attempting to get answers to any/all questions, I submitted an “Extremely Qualified Written Request” some months ago. As time passed…..and passed…I finally receive a letter with several spreadsheets & explanations as to what the different charges mean. I have been very persistent to ask “Who is my lender”. They finally wrote back and told us that it is “confidential information”, and they would not provide it.
Question: Where do I go from here? Is this a TILA violation? I thought they would have to tell me if I demanded it. I did–several times with CMRRR. They will provide me nothing. I suppose they are afraid that I will go around them if I knew who the lender is–and they are correct. Straight as a Martin to his hole.
I make the money again, in a great company and have paid the mortgage on-time ever since my lay-off. I’m stuck and need your advise. Is there any law you can provide?
Thanks for all your help and professionalism.
