Countrywide Informative - Countrywide Breachs Contracts!!
SPRING HILL, FLORIDA, FLORIDA -- We had our first loan with Countrywide in 2006. We paid our first payment in October, in 2 installments. Both installments arrived close to the 1st of the month and before the 15th. Our next payment, due in November was paid the same way.
However, Countrywide applied the payment to our escrow account and not to principal and interest. For starters, this action breached the mortgage agreement we had with Countrywide. Then, Countrywide reported us late to the credit bureaus. We contacted them, and after several conversations, they agreed to contact the credit bureaus and correct the problem. Countrywide never followed up on the request to the credit bureaus. I had to contact the credit bureaus myself and get the job done.
After all of this, we actually ended up with another loan with Countrywide. As a result of the refinancing our home, one of our lenders sold our new mortgage to Countrywide. All of our payments were made on time, from January 2007 to May 2007. during that time, we were informed by Countrywide that they had allowed our identities to be stolen by one of their employees.
We had other problems with them, and when we had a financial issue because my wife, who is a teacher, did not receive a check for 3 months, we asked Countrywide to put those months on the back of the loan, and let us start our payments in September 2007, when my wife would get a check(my income is used for all other bills).
Countrywide, after all that they had done to us, denied our request and have put us into foreclosure. We will re-instate our loan, but it never had to come to this.
We are currently sueing Countrywide for Breach of Contract, and violating our rights under the fair credit reporting act.
