Specialized Loan Servicing

SLS is a mortgage servicing company that collects and processes payments, sends statements, provides escrow administration and handles other general activities associated with mortgage loans after they have been funded. The company, based out of Greenwood Village, Colorado, provides loan services across the country. 

Our investigation has revealed that SLS may not have had appropriate processes and procedures in place to ensure mortgage payments were credited on the date they were received. This appears to impact only those payments made through the mail, and may have been due to an error or delay in retrieving mailed payments from the PO Box.

SLS | Did they break the law?

Enacted in 1968, the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) is a federal law aiming to assist consumers in dealing with lenders and creditors. Though it has been amended and expanded many times in the decades since its passage, the key components of TILA, according to Investopedia, have remained the same:

  1. Disclosure of Terms: Lenders are mandated to disclose the terms and conditions of a loan or credit, including the annual percentage rate (APR), total finance charges, amount financed, payment schedule, and any applicable fees.
  2. Fair Credit Practices: TILA prohibits certain unfair or deceptive practices in the lending process, such as misleading advertising and certain billing practices.
  3. Billing Statements and Notices: Lenders must provide regular and accurate billing statements. 

We believe that SLS may have violated TILA and other laws by improperly imposing late fees on payments received through the mail. This also may have resulted in a breach of the mortgage contract with the homeowner.

Typically, we represent clients on contingency fee agreements. If we take your case under a contingency fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.

Our contingency fee agreements are usually based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our clients. The contingency fee amount is determined by the type of case, our estimate of how long it will take to resolve your case, and our estimate of the litigation costs we will advance in your case. Each engagement agreement includes the details of the fee arrangement. Questions about our fee agreements are welcomed and encouraged.

In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long it will take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different, and we will do our best to provide you with an estimate based on your case and our experience with similar cases. Moreover, we will do our best to keep you updated and manage expectations along the way.
