Review: I have two loans with PHH, loan numbers [redacted] and [redacted]. On 2015/02/05, [redacted], Attorney for [redacted], with whom I'm refinancing these loans, faxed a request for the Stock Certificates and Proprietary Leases for both loans to PHH. On 2015/02/09, at 11:50AM, I spoke with [redacted] of PHH Customer Service at ###-###-####, Options [redacted], who confirmed that the fax requests for the Stock Certificates and Proprietary Leases had been received. [redacted] promised to expedite the process. On 2015/02/16 at 10:25AM, I spoke with [redacted] of PHH Customer Service who told me that the Stock Certificates and Proprietary Leases had been sent on 2015/02/11 and should be received within 7 to 10 business days. However, on 2015/02/18, I received from PHH copies of the 2 fax requests and my 2 Payoff Authorization forms, documents for which I never made a request, to which I already had access, and for which I had no use. On 2015/02/19, at 10:50AM, I spoke with [redacted] of PHH Customer Service, who transferred me to [redacted] of the PHH [redacted]. Incredibly, although I had received fax confirmation 2 weeks earlier, Ms. [redacted] told me that the [redacted]. had received no request for Stock Certificates and Proprietary Leases in connection with my loans. In addition, Ms. [redacted] played down the importance of the fax confirmations I received, which only added to my frustration. Ms. [redacted] took the information for the requests from me, but told me it would take 15 to 30 days from 2015/02/19 to receive the Stock Certificates and Proprietary Leases, even though the request had been made 2 weeks earlier. On 2015/02/24 at 11:40AM, I spoke with [redacted] of PHH Customer Service who transferred me to [redacted] of the PHH [redacted]. Ms. [redacted] said she would get to the bottom of this and get back to me. I have yet to hear from Ms. [redacted]. While PHH is ignoring my request, I'm paying unnecessary interest each day the process is delayed.Desired Settlement: I will be satisfied if the Stock Certificates and Proprietary Leases for my 2 loans are delivers to the PHH Attorney within 3 days.

Review: I also had called prior to making my payment to ensure that it was going to be applied properly. It's almost been a month and my money is being held in suspense by this company. I did not get a response to my email, nor phone call and my $380 are still in suspense. When I called the company yesterday, I was however question why I was two month ahead on my payments.

Subject: RE: In reference to this web site [#[redacted]]

Today is the 6th business day and I called your company. I was told this would be fixed today and given a phone call. The issue is not fixed. Not only are you holding my money in suspense wit out reason for the last month, instead of applying it to my escrow but also my last 2 payment are not being applied properly. I guess you would rather have me refinance my house instead of keeping a customer that has paid every single payment on time. If this is not done by tomorrow, I will start refinancing with a different company. As a military disabled vet I should not have any issues doing this. I want my escrow applied properly and my last 2 payment distributed correctly.

Review: I submitted two (2) refinance loan packages to PHH Mortgage. Both loans should have closed in May but did not close until July 18th [redacted]) and August 29th [redacted]. I provided the loan officer all of the documentation that he requested timely but the loans did not to close on time. A request for an appraisal wasn’t made by PHH until the month of August for loan #7127921711. The delay was unreasonable and the interest rates increased by over half a point. The Good Faith Estimate when I submitted the loan should be honored (4.66 with no points), since the delays and mistakes that PHH made (not responding timely or understanding what was needed to closed the loan). PHH only responded to my complaint regarding loan [redacted] but has yet to respond regarding loan [redacted] - [redacted] property.Desired Settlement: The original Good Faith Estimate should be honored.

Review: On 05/13/14 PHH was paid in full via wire transfer the mortgage balance of $194,246.65. A balance of $2,121.94 remained in my escrow account, I expected that the escrow would be deducted from the mortgage pay off figure; however it was retained by PHH.I waited one week,(05/20/14) for the escrow funds to be returned to me; however when that failed to occur, I contacted PHH who first informed me that the law controlled the return of escrow. I informed them that I checked the law and they are not correct.I had a discussion with a supervisor (Ralph) who indicated that it would be 15-20 business days before PHH would cut a check to return my escrow funds, in accordance with PHH policy and there was nothing he could do to change it, but would try to expedite my request, he indicated would call with their decision.Needless to say my phone is silent.Desired Settlement: Return my escrow via wire transfer to my checking Acct. which is how I have being paying PHH for fifteen years.

Response:

[redacted] was contacted on May 28, 2014 via telephone by PHH Mortgage Services Office of the President.

The refund of the escrow account in the amount of $2,121.94 has been sent [redacted] on May 29, 2014 via UPS and the tracking number is [redacted]PHHMC’s policy is that escrow refunds will be retained for up to 15 business days after the satisfaction of a mortgage loan to ensure there is not a reversal of the satisfaction. We apologize if this policy was miscommunicated to [redacted] and will provide the appropriate training feedback.

Review: On October 3, 2013 I received a Release of Lien documentation of my property located on [redacted] Florida 33160 Loan Number [redacted].

On the Satisfaction of Mortgage document filed at Miami Dade County the name listed is incorrect, so it is also incorrect on the Recording Information.

The names recorded are: [redacted] and [redacted] and the correct name should read [redacted] instead.

I called the customer service to be told that "it isn't a big deal". A legal document is a big deal and the document should be corrected and re-filed.

I need the correct action to be taken to rectify it.Desired Settlement: I need the correction to be filed at Miami Dade County and also a communciation adjusting the name.

Response:

PHH extends an apology for any inconvenience the issue may have caused the borrower. The errors on the Satisfaction of Mortgage have been corrected. PHH has not yet received the original documentation from the county. However, PHH has obtained the attached copy of the recorded Satisfaction of Mortgage for your records

Review: I obtained a mortgage with [redacted] in 2007. My mortgage payments were being processed by the [redacted] (PHH Mortgage). I authorized automatic withdrawals every two weeks in the amount of $200.00. In December 2014, my loan was sold to another company called [redacted]. I did not receive notification of this process until [redacted] contacted me via phone informing me that the January payment was late. Once I determined this was legitimate, I contacted the Mortgage Service Center to inform them to stop the automatic withdrawals. I have contacted them several times, sent copies of my bank statement showing the withdrawals and spent many hours on the phone in an attempt to get them to stop. The last withdrawal was 2/13/15. Eventually I had to pay my Bank a $40 fee to have them stop the withdrawals. In addition, I have assessed fees with the current loan company [redacted] due to not paying. I cannot make the payments because the Mortgage Service Center is taking the money I use to pay my mortgage. When I call the customer service number, many representatives have told me it is impossible for this to happen since the loan was closed. While I have remained as calm as possible, the reps have disconnected the calls, transferred me several times to peers, or would refuse to put a manager on the phone. On February 3, 2015, I spoke to a manager who eventually gave me her email address so I could send my bank statements showing the withdrawals. She stated she would look into the matter. I still have not received a phone call or message back.

I did receive one check for $395.00 which I assume was the January withdrawals which also confirms what I am saying is accurate (although the customer service representatives strongly stick to the story that once the loan is closed the automatic withdrawals will stop).Desired Settlement: I am only requesting someone look into this matter and return the money which was taken so I can forward to the new mortgage company. It would be nice if they would pay the $40.00 I was charged by my bank to have them stop the withdrawals and the $30 in late fees charged by [redacted] for two months of late payments (January and February). They have completed automatic withdrawals on the following dates:

1/2/15

1/16/15

1/30/15

2/13/15

Response:

Prior to your loan being transferred to [redacted], the account was set up with our vendor [redacted]. On January 5, 2015, PHH Mortgage Corporation (“PHHMC”) received an electronic payment in the amount of $395.00 which was returned to you directly. On February 5, 2015, PHHMC received a payment from [redacted] in the amount of $592.50. On February 12, 2015, we returned the payment back to [redacted]. The draft that occurred on February 13, 2013 is still with [redacted] and has not been forwarded to us. Please contact [redacted] to cancel the drafts and to receive a refund. Their phone number is ###-###-#### Ext. * and their normal office hours are 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM Eastern Time.

Review: We have had a standard 30 year conventional mortgage since December 2004. The loan number is [redacted]. The original mortgage lender was HSBC USA NA located in Buffalo, NY. Since May 1, 2013, the loan has been handed over to the PHH Mortgage Corporation [redacted]. The loan has included a Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) fee of $172.00 a month since the beginning of the loan all the way to the most current July 2013 payment. Regarding our desire to have the PMI portion ($172.00 monthly fee) removed from the loan, we were told by the lender, at the time of signing, that if we:

1 Made all payments in full and on time (No delinquency)

2 Reduce the Loan to Value ratio of the loan below 80.00% (Typically this is the loan amount divided by the original value of the property)

then we could ask for and have the PMI removed. Since the beginning of our loan, we have made every payment on time and in full, often making extra principal reduction. Our LTV (according to the lender's own website) is currently at 74.700% , well below the 80% requirement spelled out in the loan contract.

Since we have met the above requirements and made a formal request in writing to have the PMI removed, we should have received a letter indicating PMI would be in fact removed, but instead we received an email stating a letter describing the PMI removal procedures would be sent in the next 10-14 days. We have made this same exact PMI removal request before (when the loan was serviced by HSBC) and got the same type of response, but never an actual letter in the mail. We were also told the letter forthcoming in the next 10-14 days is not a statement of PMI removal, but rather a repeat statement of the conditions for PMI removal. This would stall the procedure of having the PMI removed and force yet another PMI fee of $172 for the upcoming August 2013 payment.Desired Settlement: We would like to have the PMI removed prior to our next August 2013 loan payment. We would like a decision to be made, not another letter describing the PMI removal procedures. If the lender just sits on this over the next few weeks, that most likely won't happen and they would be in essence taking another $172.00 from us personally. We have heard in the news lately that this type of delay tactic is typical and is a way a lender can increase their quarterly bottom line. We have no recourse but to rely on an organization like the Revdex.com to intervene on our behalf.

Business

Response:

PHH extends an apology for any inconvenience the issue may have caused the borrower. The PMI Department was not made aware that the borrower was requesting PMI removal requirements. The request was placed on 07/02/13. This is the reason the borrower has not received the removal requirements. The PMI has been removed and the last premium paid was 06/18/2013 which covered the premium due for 05/2013 (since PMI is paid one month behind) the June premium has been applied to the borrower's escrow. The “Congratulations letter” will be mailed out 07/05/2013.

Review: The company mislead me and gave me false information about a product. This is also [redacted] Home Loans by the way. I was told as long as I purchased an appraisal for my property they would give me 65% of the amount in a loan. Several people told me this and it was sent to me in writing in the loan package. I ordered the appraisal and right before closing they changed their minds and didn't use the appraisal they had me pay for and instead used the purchase price of the property. I made sure to clairify all facts up front and in the end they didn't deliver the product. They need to refund the appraisal fee they ordered. They never used the appraisal like they promised they would. They changed the rules.Desired Settlement: Reimburse $500

Review: My husband and I decided to refinance our mortgage with another company. We were told we would have our escrow check within 30 days. It has now been 50 DAYS and we still don't have our check. I have called the he twice and they have been unhelpful. They informed me my check was mailed out on the 11th of this month. This was 19 days ago! They are also unable to tell me when my check will arrive and/or if they have a tracking number on it. They said they can cancel the original check and send me a new one, but it will take another 7-10 business days to get to me. Unacceptable.Desired Settlement: I would like my check immediately (i.e. overnighted) or directly deposited to my bank account.

Review: I recently paid off my mortgage loan with PHH Mortgage and they charged a $100 fee (a new fee charged in May 2014). They claimed it was an "assessment and valuation" charge of $100 back in Sept. 2009 that remained on my account, but to the best of my knowledge, I was never made aware of this fee/charge. It supposedly was associated with a loan restructuring I applied for back in 2009 but I withdrew my application and as such, should have never been charged the fee. During the application process, the fee was not communicated via phone, email, or on any materials associated with the loan restructuring.Desired Settlement: Refund of the $100 charged within 30 days of this Revdex.com complaint.

The contested charge was a cost incurred by PHH .As a gesture of goodwill, PHH has refunded $100.00 to the consumer. The check was mailed on June 4, 2014 to the mailing address on file.

Our last mortgage servicing company sold our loan to PHH Mortgage. We received nothing from PHH Mortgage for 90 days after we were notified by the last serving company. We intentionally sent an extra payment to our prior servicing company and then sent a payment to PHH Motrgage at the same time, 90 days before receiving our first bill from them. We send our payment early mainly because as soon as they process our payment, they send a new billing statement the same day. We receive two bills each month, on November 1st PHH Mortgage determined we had missed our November 1st payment and began calling everyday several times a day, but did not leave a message when the phone went to voicemail. When we do respond to a telephone call from an unknown toll free number and discovered it was PHH Mortgage we were told we missed our payment for November even though their own records indicate they processed a payment for November on 16 October 2015. The customer service representative, [redacted] who spoke with us on 18 November 2015 indicated that she found the error and flagged it. She did not correct the error, she indicated that she needed to speak with a supervisor about fixing the error and that we would be contacted on 19 November 2015 when the error has been corrected. We have taken great care to ensure we are a month ahead in payments due to the negative reputation PHH Mortgage has had with other customers concerning accounting errors which resulted in changes in original mortgage agreements and foreclosure of property.

Review: PHH Mortgage has been charging a monthly $31.95 "[redacted] Insurance" charge for months after having been contacted 5 times, requesting they cancel this optional insurance.

Every time, they transfer the customer to the "Insurance department" - which is always a voicemail.

I've been promised to have supervisors call back within 24 hours - this hasn't happened.Desired Settlement: Cancel the [redacted] Insurance" effective immediately

Response:

Thank you for allowing us to address the concerns you have raised regarding the optional insurance associated with your mortgage loan with PHH Mortgage Corporation.

Review: I entered into this agreement with the hope of refinancing my home. I was trying to take advantage of the Harp loan that I had heard about. I was under the impression that I did not need to have my house appraised to refinance. However my house was appraised an when I contacted PHH Mortgage Corp. to find out what my house came in at they told me it was $205,000.00 So I asked if I could roll in my second mortgage so I could consolidate my loans. I was told yes and even talked with a woman who was in charge of the loan process and she even verified that the loans were able to be combined. So everything up to that point was fine. I was told that I would close on March 11, 2013. However a couple of weeks before closing they call me and tell me that I can't consolidate my loans. So they then started requesting more information and making me contact my lender for more information that I was under the impression that they were doing that. On many occasion I tried to contact my loan processor [redacted] to talk with her and I never received a call back. It was always by e-mail and I always ended up talking to a team member that were confused on the issue and could only give her the message. Si I feel like they intensionally delayed to make me pass by the closing date. Then when I checked my bank account today I found that $454.70 had been withdrawn from my account. I was never notified about the withdraw from them and now have been placed in a financial hard ship trying to pay my mortgage. I was also charged a $50.00 charge for an overdraft. I am very upset that I was lied to and mislead through this entire process. I feel that I should not have to pay the fee charged because the information that was supplied to me through the process was not accurate so I feel like I the one cheated.

Account_Number: [redacted]Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund

I would like to have $494.70 refunded to my account. I was mislead and also received false information about the value of my house and delayed past my deadline of March 11, 2013. Also received a letter that said that my credit score was 595 and they couldn't help me and closed my file. I then found out by another lender that I am now working with, said that my credit score was 659 and he said that all I needed was a 640 to qualify. So I couldn't understand where

Review: After years of trying, lawyers, paperwork that seemed to never end, I finally was approved for a loan mod through [redacted] during the final stages of my mod, PHH took over servicing my loan. I refused to communicate with or pay 1 dime to phh until my loan mod was finalized with [redacted]. I received and signed the final loan mod paperwork. Now PHH told me they needed to rewrite the mod using their documents, not a problem, no more info was needed from me because they were going to "mirror" [redacted] mod, they did not require tax, bank, employment, or any other documents because, again, [redacted] already approved me. Now I receive the loan mod packet from PHH and needed to simply find a notary, sign, then return. No problem...I did as they requested and started to make my payments. Next month I receive my monthly statement and notice a balance of approx. 70k differed? I call phh to inquire about this amount. My mod with [redacted] stated that amount would be forgiven! I was told that was just an error in terminology and would be easily changed. Well, after a month or 2 the amount never disappeared from my statement, I called and called only to be reassured this was an error on their part and would take a little longer to see the change on my statement. Now I receive a notice that [redacted] would be my new loan servicing co. and they would be making the change on my loan. After many more phone calls, [redacted] tells me phh needed to repair this error. Well here we are today, [redacted] says they forgave the 70k$, and PHH says I signed a document with them and that's it! IM BEAT! This is unacceptable. I now owe more then my home is worth. [redacted] gave me a acceptable mod, phh screwed it up and walked away with $70k for nothing. I am not a lawyer, I did not know that I was agreeing to ADD 70k that [redacted] just removed from my loan a month earlier. If I was still with [redacted] none of this would've ever happened.Desired Settlement: I would like the unjustified amount that was added to my loan removed. How can phh not see this mistake was made during the short time they serviced my loan. Its really simple. HELP

Business

Response:

Good Afternoon,Per the loan modification we sent you on November 26, 2014, it states that your new principal balance was This amount matches the new principal balance that [redacted] offered you prior to the service transfer. Enclosed is a copy of both loan modifications. However, since your loan is closed with PHH Mortgage Corporation and you now have a new servicer, you should contact your servicer. We did advise them that we approved your loan for the modification and the agreed upon terms.Thank you very much PHH Mortgage Corporation

Consumer

Response:

Review: [redacted]

I am rejecting this response because:

The reason for my complaint is because of the monies / fees forgiven by [redacted]. Please review the 2 modification agreements. My question is simple. Why did PHH add approx $70k to my loan during the short period they serviced it? I have made an effort to work this out with my current servicer, they are not able to assist me. They have informed me to direct my concerns to the company whom made the error. PHH Why did Phh tack on a defered balance to my loan?

Regards,

Business

Response:

Response:

PHH Mortgage Corporation (“PHHMC”) acquired your loan on August 9, 2013. When acquired, the loan reflected a principal balance of and reflected a due date of November 2009.

Based on your prior modification approved by your prior lender/servicer, PHHMC worked to provide you a modification with terms and a payment similar to what you were offered prior to the servicing transfer.

When PHHMC performed the calculations for the modification, your loan was forty-nine (49) months delinquent. At that time, your loan was due for in delinquent interest.

In order to offer you the same unpaid principal balance (“UPB”) provided by [redacted]’s Modification, PHHMC had to capitalize the following:

This would bring the Principal balance to:

As PHHMC is not delegated to forgive funds, the amount of [redacted] was deferred, making your UPB $[redacted]. PHHMC would only calculate interest on the unpaid principal balance of [redacted] and not deferred amount.

The deferment is not a forgiveness of debt; however, it does reduce the principal balance in which interest is paid on. This amount would be payable (referenced in the loan modification documents) when you sell or transfer an interest in the property or pay the balance in full or at maturity.

Please note, as the loan transferred to PHHMC in a delinquent state, the interest continued to accrue until the modification was calculated. This is a result of you not making payments to PHHMC at that time.

As there was more interest due, PHHMC deferred more of the principal balance to provide the same UPB as the [redacted] approved modification.

I have enclosed the signed loan modification for your records.

I am rejecting this response because:

Phh took over servicing my loan on august 9 2013, the modification was signed on august 6 2013, my mod with [redacted] was competed and finalized, the amount of my loan was [redacted] Everything changed when phh took over. It would appear your paperwork is incorrect. I just got off the phone with [redacted] they confirm everything I have been telling you. They DID NOT send my loan to you with past due interest or fees of any kind. So now I have [redacted] telling me they transferred the loan to phh in the amount of [redacted], and phh tacking on imaginary interest. Its all right here in black and white.

Review: [redacted]

I am rejecting this response because: A copy of both modifications was attached in your previous communications? This is part of the reason for my frustration. It is painfully obvious that my loan was not transferred to PHH with ANY deferred amount. People make mistakes, especially when you have so may involved as in this case. Lets fix this error and move on. Thanks

Review: Coldwell Banker Mortgage processed an over the phone payment from an account from which it was not authorized. I did not even provide the account number they used on the day of the call. They had stored an account number without my permission. I did not know they had an account number. I provided the account number on September 25 that they were authorized to take a payment. They instead used a different account number without approval.Desired Settlement: I do not think the company should be able to store my banking information without my knowledge and approval.

Business

Response:

On September 25, 2014, PHHMC servicing records reflect that the borrower called in and spoke to a Collection representative regarding processing a loan payment. However due to a processing oversight the representative confirmed the last four numbers of the checking account number that Mrs. [redacted] was going to use however did not change the existing information on file.

As a result, please note that based upon the previous checking account information that was processed, (which was utilized for this transaction) the check did not clear. PHHMC will automatically submit the check a second time and Mrs. [redacted] will likely be charged another NSF fee if the funds are still not available. PHHMC will reimburse Mrs.[redacted] if charged the second time for NSF fee (PHH will need a copy of the bank statement) and will also waive the current late charges $61.24 as compensation for her frustration. However if the check does not clear Mrs.[redacted] will need to replace the September payment.

Please accept my sincere apologies for the frustration you experienced.

Business

Response:

PHHMC servicing records reflect your mortgage loan payment in the amount $ 601.06 due for September 1, 2014 posted to your account on September 25, 2014. PHHMC has waived the fee of $61.24 that appeared on your account as previously agreed. This fee was waived effective October 7, 2014.

We apologize for any frustration and inconvenience that this matter has caused.

Thank you

Review: I am a victim of mortgage fraud in the sale to me in 2006 of a property that I have since been harassed so savagely and criminally with the blessings of a local village government in Round Lake Beach IL whose relationships and former members have a long history of public corruption convictions. Convictions for real estate and mortgage fraud in that area were also significant post 2008. This one was blocked from court procedure by the harassment and willful endangerment of the victim, who no longer able to pay and with serious health problems I didn't have when I moved there in 2006, found a good job back in Chicago and moved back to very nearly the same neighborhood I owned an old townhouse in, in 2006. The property is grossly under water, as property in both areas are. As such, the property was listed for short sale at the instruction of PHH, and went under sales contract in roughly 30 days, as of March 18 2013. I became unable to make both payments for my rent and the mortgage while under contract due to further harassment on a level like the above, and continue to be by PHH which has drastically cut my income and eliminated the use of time to operate my business or anything else, which continues to be the case. PHH has refused to permit other than payments in full for the duration, and then told me not to worry about it writing from a [redacted] in its President's office who appeared after I filed about the robocalling, and cut off account servicing other than for collections, which is a practice that keeps resuming just without the robocalling. PHH has now inflicted an enormous external disruption filing against my credit report to force collections and terminating all account services as of when counteroffer was provided as requested, which appears to be a malicious fraud involved with the sale procedure that PHH is trying to block as they are even paying anything.Desired Settlement: I want PHH to restore the account services and restore listing the account as paid as agreed to all 3 credit bureaus. They have coerced the use of reserves for living through this and made a payment in full, given the clear impression that PHH is playing an illegal game of stalling payments or teh short sale, similar to the Bank of America case about identical conduct with the loan modification program. The stalling for time has to do with getting away with it regarding the mortgage payment due July 1 of 2013, which PHH caused to be impossible to enter online this weekend, and had to be initiated elsewhere. The harassment with the refusal to provide information on the part of PHH is also an illegal collections practice, as is the harassment with [redacted] and its President's office being the only account services they provide since they were caught also harassing keeping the property insured after I moved. I am nearing age 60, and IRA funds also appear to be an illegal issue.

Response:

In order to be considered for loss mitigation options, borrowers must submit a complete application. On April 10, 2013, PHHMC received your request for loss mitigation assistance. On April 12, 2013, PHHMC determined that the application was incomplete, and sent you a letter requesting the necessary documentation required to proceed with the review. A copy of the missing items letter is enclosed for your review.

A property valuation was requested on April 16, 2013. As a brief summary of the short sale review process, it must be noted that all property valuation requests for your loan’s investor, Fannie Mae, are ordered and reviewed by Fannie Mae. It can take up to thirty (30) days or more to complete the valuation process. Upon completion of the valuation, Fannie Mae provides PHHMC with the value of the property along with the minimum net proceeds required from the sale of the property. Fannie Mae may also suggest the amount that the property should be listed for sale, based on their valuation. Upon PHHMC’s receipt of Fannie Mae’s information regarding the valuation, if the offer proposed by the seller does not meet Fannie Mae’s minimum requirements, PHHMC will make a counter offer.

On April 24, 2013, PHHMC determined that the additional information needed to complete the application package had been received, at which time a financial review was performed. The financial review showed your gross income at $49.65 and the net income at negative $3.47.

On May 16, 2013, PHHMC received an e-mail from you citing the Fair Debt Act and requesting that PHHMC cease all communications with you. You stated in the e-mail that since you were going through a short sale, PHHMC should not and cannot contact you. PHHMC was also advised that you wanted to be considered for the HAFA because that program offered a relocation incentive and a deficiency waiver. You and your authorized third party, [redacted] of the law firm of [redacted] were advised on May 17, 2013 via e-mail that the HAFA program had been discontinued as of December 31, 2012. You were further advised that you would not qualify for the relocation incentive because the subject property was a second home and was not your primary residence.

On June 5, 2013, [redacted] e-mailed PHHMC regarding the status of the short sale and to advise that she had not received a response from you regarding whether you were willing to move forward with the short sale without the incentive. On June 7, 2013 a counter offer was presented to [redacted] at $38,000.00. As of the date of this letter, PHHMC has not received a response to the counter offer. Based on the review of PHHMC records relating to your request, no evidence was found to support your contention that your request has been unreasonably delayed.

PHHMC solicited a Fannie Mae Streamline Modification Trial Plan to you on June 15, 2013. The trial plan offer was based on meeting Fannie Mae’s criteria and did not require a traditional application or financial review.

The terms of the trial plan require you to make three (3) monthly payments in the amount of $699.97 on July 1, 2013, August 1, 2013 and September 1, 2013. Your acceptance of the offer is indicated by making the aforementioned trial payments timely. Upon successful completion of the trial plan, your loan will be permanently modified in accordance with the terms of the modification agreement. A copy of the trial plan offer has been enclosed for your review. Should you wish to accept this offer and remain in your home and no longer pursue a short sale, please contact your case manager [redacted] by telephone at ###-###-####, ext. 80937 or via e-mail at [redacted]

It should be noted that it is highly unusual for more than one foreclosure alternative to be considered at the same time; however, you have been reviewed and approved for a streamline modification as well as a repayment plan while going through the short sale review process. If you do not wish to move forward with the liquidation workout (short sale) and would like to pursue the modification and/or repayment plan, please clarify in writing as to the type of workout you prefer. Although the reviews were conducted simultaneously, you cannot accept both a liquidation and retention workout at the same time.

While PHHMC does have an offshore call center, PHHMC has no record of you speaking with one of our offshore agents. The only instance on record of communication handled by an offshore agent is a conversation your husband had April 5, 2013 during which he asked to speak with and was transferred to our insurance department. On April 11, 2013 a letter was received requesting to cease telephone communication with you. Your account was noted and all telephone calls have stopped.

Review:[redacted]

I am rejecting this response because:

The credit bureau account listing needs to be restored to paid as agreed status until the final close, scheduled for next week.

I am being viciously harassed as a result of the account not stating paid as agreed status.

Per the attached, PHH told me to ignore the whole thing, which created a paid as agreed status instead of the interim workout for some at least partial payment while the sale was pending.

I made payments including one recently, to keep the property from going into foreclosure while the sale was pending, which have caused having to finance other payments.

As per the attached, I don't owe PHH or the investor anything because they have granted a full waiver of the deficiency based on the complete and truthful disclosure of the facts that forced me into selling the property short, as the only way a property that far underwater from the real estate crash, along with a complete statement of all assets, sources of cash and income, and inflicted indebtedness which was scheduled for payment as I have settled the mortgage on the house.

While the account cannot be listed as settled until the close is finalized, it is paid as agreed and PHH needs to represent that status truthfully.

This is not about getting credit cards. It has effected my business and my resources drastically with the number of people who have highly repetitively demanded resources and disruption who were not owed any money.

PHH does not have the right to misrepresent the account status, and they continue to.

They also have forced me through enough harassment about getting information only through 3rd parties that the large number of hours this keeps taking up are also endangering the victims who are not trying to go shopping with our credit ratings the way most people don't.

Regards,

Business

Response:

PHH extends an apology for any inconvenience the issue may have caused the borrower. Our Credit Department has fully reviewed the events of the loan and verified that the loan is 90 days delinquent. The loan is due for the April 2013 payment. Pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, PHH must report delinquent account histories accurately to the credit agencies. PHH does not have any documentation that states we would block the borrower’s credit while waiting for her paperwork and or the approval of the Short Sale; as this does not fall in line with PHH company policy. The Short Sale will be reported once there is a Final HUD.

Review: In July 2014, I received a letter that advised my escrow would be short $141.75. Therefore, I sent a payment of $1,404.83 on 8/10/14, which is my August monthly payment of $1263.08 + the escrow shortage of $ 141.75 = $1404.83. Apparently, I was not suppose to send $141.75 until September 2014. However, I wanted to pay it right away. What I didn't know is that I would be hassled by your collection agency from [redacted] and no one is able to understand that I already made the payment. Can someone from PHH Mortgage look into my account and fix this problem? I'm tired of the constant phone calls and letters stating that I need to make a payment that I've already paid, and that I need credit counseling because I'm delinquent in paying.Desired Settlement: I would appreciate a letter from PHH Mortgage stating that this has been resolved along with a phone call.

Business

Response:

Servicing records show the escrow shortage payment received on August 12, 2014 was misapplied as your August 1, 2014 mortgage payment with additional $151.88 applied to principal curtailment. I have placed request to have funds reversed and will have reapplied correctly by December 2, 2014

With regard to you payment being placed in suspense as short payments, consequently all future payments where applied to suspense or holding account as short payments.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused

Review: Hello,

In July I spoke with a representative who suggest I complete the paperwork for a loan modification to assist me with getting my mortgage payments current. After that contact I received the package of paper work in the mail, completed the paper work and sent it back to PHH. About a week or so later, I received a notice that the paper work was incomplete and I need to submit additional documentation. Upon completing the information I received a call from [redacted] stating she would be handling my modification. She emailed me the paper work (again) and again I resubmitted all the paper work that was previously submitted. I would call to follow up regarding the paperwork and it would be days, weeks, before I would get a response. Here I am thinking because I haven't heard anything all my paper work must be complete (wrong). I went back and fourth with [redacted] for weeks, I was told that printing my bank statement off of the internet was not allowed, that I needed to allow my bank to send my statement and then fax the statement to her. We went back and fourth and then on 09/06/13 I receive an email from Ms [redacted] stating that if my bank statements weren't received I would be receiving a final incomplete notice , if my bank statement weren't received on 09/09/13. I had been trying to follow up with Ms [redacted] for days prior to getting this email, just to ensure that everything was going accordingly. How could I get a notice of incomplete when I sent weeks trying to maintain contact with Ms [redacted] regarding this issue. On our last conversation she stated it would take 30 days for the modification process so if I don't hear from her allow the 30 days. To my surprise after weeks of no contact, Ms [redacted] contacts me to tell me I have a weekend to get my bank statement in. I explained again to Ms [redacted] that I had to download the info from the internet because I had signed up for online statements and the statements hadn't yet generated.Desired Settlement: I feel as if I did everything I was suppose to do. I attempted to maintain contact with [redacted] every step of the modification processes, however trying to get an update had the same chance of winning the lottery. I had to send multiple emails before I would even get a response. I did my part and I should not be denied a loan modification due to the lack of communication with [redacted].

Review: received a copy of a credit report and the comany has reported a late charge on [redacted] It was not late. The lst payment I made was a partical payment waiting for the closing from the home being sold. I should not not have this on my reports. I am working to get it cleaned up and certainly do not need this. I would liek this to show closed with not negitive reports on the credit reports and would like a copy of the corrected report. In the ten years I had one late whice was removed. This is only a timing issue with the sale of the home.Desired Settlement: Would like this the be reported as clear on the credit reports.

Review: I have been trying to access my mortgage data for several days and have not received proper support. I keep getting locked out of the website despite a telephone call to correct the problemDesired Settlement: PHH should provide reasonable access to customers including proper telephone support that actually fixes a problem.

The site is misleading in that it leads one to enter new passwords when in fact NO password will work for proper loging.

In addition their on line service in providing mortgage statements is substandard in that the statement does NOT include the address of the property subject to the mortgage. Most banks and other financial institutions requesting a mortgage statement will NOT accept statement that does not clearly identify the property in question.

Response:

PHH extends an apology for any inconvenience the issue may have caused the borrower. On July 22, 2013, the borrower contacted PHH Mortgage Service Center to advise that he was having difficulties accessing his [redacted] mortgage loan via our [redacted] website. Upon our customer service representative assisting with this request, PHH provided a temporary password and security code. During that call, the borrower had also expressed concerns over our monthly billing statements. The borrower advised that our monthly billing statements only provided the mailing address as opposed to his property address which was causing issues with a new creditor. Our customer service representative failed to order a Verification of Mortgage (although mentioned) and advised that we would charge him a fee in the amount of $15.00 for this document to which you declined. PHH Mortgage Service Center has since ordered a Verification of Mortgage at no charge to assist with his attempt to secure future credit as we do not place the property address on our monthly billing statements.The following day, July 23, 2013, contact was made and the borrower was transferred to our Web Support team to resolve the issues surrounding access to our [redacted] website. If the borrower still experiencing issues, please contact [redacted] at extension [redacted]
