Unearned Legal Fees Attatched to Foreclosure Costs
NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- If you are in the middle of a foreclosure and Harmon Law office out of Newton,MA is handling it BEWARE. They tack on costs for Appraisals ( which have not been performed), Foreclosure Fees Projected Costs and Advanced all of which HAVE NOT BEEN EARNED. This is against the law according to the FDCPA and a class action suit decision in the US District Court of MA ( Civil case # 03-cv-10932-RGS). But they haven't stopped their practicies. I just signed a forebearance agreement in order to stop the foreclosure on my house, they had delayed the processing so my back was against the wall and I signed the agreement with over $11,000.00 of legal fees that I have to pay of which only 2000.00 were identified as incurred!!! I am sure that I am not the only one in this predicament and I would like some input regarding others experience. I have contacted the Federal Trade Commission and am filing a complaint with the Attorney General in MA & NH. If you are or have experienced HARMON LAW doing what they do best, please provide feedback. And just to let you know that they also own their own auction services, doesn't that seem like a conflict of interest?
