Attorneys at Duke Seth, PLLC (foreclosure defense law firm) forced Citi Mortgage to rescind the foreclosure and offer homeowner a loan modification.
A homeowner in Dallas County approached foreclosure defense attorney Meenu Seth at Duke Seth, PLLC, after Citi Mortgage foreclosed on her property. While reviewing her case some interesting facts surfaced. Few days before the scheduled foreclosure sale, the homeowner was advised by the loss mitigation department of Citi Mortgage via phone as well via email that they have received her loan modification packet and are reviewing her for the same. She was assured that Citi Mortgage will not proceed with the scheduled foreclosure. Homeowner also received correspondence from Citi Mortgage, after the foreclosure sale took place that she is under review for loan modification. Homeowner was beyond shock when she was served with the notice to vacate. It was a clear case of negligent misrepresentation by Citi Mortgage, due to which the homeowner could not seek legal counsel to stop the foreclosure.
Attorney Meenu Seth sued Citi Mortgage for promissory estoppel and negligent misrepresentation. She obtained a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) and stopped the eviction. Attorney Seth demanded Citi Mortgage to rescind the foreclosure and offer loan modification to the homeowner. After two months of rigorous negotiations, Citi Mortgage finally agreed to rescind the foreclosure and offered a loan modification to the homeowner.
