Kentucky Homeowners Receive $55.5 Million in Settlement Relief
More than $55.5 million in relief has gone to hundreds of Kentucky homeowners in the national mortgage foreclosure settlement.
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway said in a statement that a recent report from the independent settlement monitor also indicates that mortgage servicers were processing more than $2 million in additional claims for Kentucky borrowers, for a total of $57.5 million.
The statement said the 1,562 borrowers received an average of $35,534. The relief was provided by Ally/GMAC/Bank of America, Citi, Chase and Wells Fargo through Dec. 31.
Conway's office said the information provided by mortgage servicers hasn't been verified by the compliance monitor.
The $25 billion settlement was reached a year ago between 49 state attorneys general and five of the nation's largest banks.
