On February 9, the DOJ announced a $123 million settlement with five national mortgage servicers for allegedly violating sections of the SCRA. Specifically, the DOJ alleges that the mortgage servicers subjected over 900 service members to unlawful non-judicial foreclosures between January 1, 2006 and April 4, 2012. Under the SCRA portion of the 2012 National Mortgage Settlement, the five mortgage servicers will reimburse millions of dollars to service members who should have been protected from foreclosure, as per Section 533 of the SCRA, which “prohibits non-judicial foreclosures against service members who are in military service or within the applicable post-service period, as long as they originated their mortgages before their period of military service began.” The mortgage servicers are cooperating with the Justice Department to compensate service members affected by the alleged non-judicial foreclosures.
