Foreclosed? Federal Reserve Foreclosure Survey Coming Your Way

Are you a homeowner and want to complain to the federal government about the foreclosure crisis? The Federal Reserve's foreclosure survey could be coming your way, reports the San Francisco Business Times.

The Federal Reserve is not alone in the foreclosure review. The body is joined by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). The foreclosure survey will go out to people that faced foreclosures in 2009 or 2010, reports the OCC website. The OCC is calling it the Independent Foreclosure Review.

Through the survey, you can get a review of your case if you believe you suffered financial injury as a result of errors in the foreclosure processes of the following companies: America's Servicing Company, Aurora Loan Services, Bank of America, Beneficial, Chase, Citibank, CitiFinancial, Citi Mortgage, Country-Wide, EMC, EverBank/Everhome, Freedom Financial, GMAC Mortgage, HFC, HSBC, IndyMac Mortgage Services, MetLife Bank, National City, PNC Mortgage, Sovereign Bank, Sun-Trust Mortgage, U.S. Bank, Wachovia, Washington Mutual, and Wells Fargo.

The Independent Foreclosure Review's staff will determine whether individuals suffered financial injury and should receive compensation or other remedies due to errors or other problems.

Already, more than 4 million letters have been mailed. If you believe you are eligible and have not received a form, you can request one from (888) 952-9105.

Reviews are conducted by independent consultants working under the direction of the federal regulators and may take several months to complete.

Finally, if you believe your case to be particularly complicated, you may seek the assistance of an attorney beforehand. After all, you don't always get to make your case to the government like this.
