At Risk Homeowners Allege Discrimination

first_img  Print This Post Tagged with: ECBA FHA HUD Lone Star Funds Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady (ECBA) and MFY Legal Services recently filed a federal class action challenging the legality of a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program, DASP, that sells government-insured FHA home mortgages to private equity funds, leaving these borrowers without insurance-program benefits they are entitled to and putting them at heightened risk of foreclosure, according to a release from ECBA. The lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of New York.Additionally, the release states that the suit alleges that HUD’s program violates the Fair Housing Act, attributing this to HUD disproportionately selling FHA loans issued to African-American borrowers in New York City for homes in predominantly African American neighborhoods like St. Albans, Queens.According to ECBA, this suit also challenges the actions of Lone Star Funds, the largest purchaser of mortgages sold through the HUD program. The lawsuit alleges that when Lone Star purchases the mortgages from HUD, it “preys on the homeowners”. They allege that the company makes false and misleading statements to the homeowners while refusing to offer homeowners loan modifications it is legally obligated to provide. Instead, it alleges that Lone Star offers homeowners exploitative loan modifications that spell almost certain foreclosure for these borrowers down the line. ECBA also says that the complaint alleges that Lone Star violates the Fair Housing Act because its policies disproportionately impact African-American borrowers and predominantly African-American communities in New York City.It was noted by the New York Times that the sales to private investors had already been under criticism in Washington, thus causing the agency to put in new protections for homeowners whose federally backed mortgages change ownership.Despite the new addendum, more than 100,000 mortgages already sold by HUD in a series of auctions will not qualify for the new protections. The controversy over mortgage sales is something the housing agency has faced over its Federal Housing Administration mortgage program for quite some time now. By selling the mortgages to the highest bidder, the agency can bolster its insurance fund that had been eroded by the flood of foreclosures in the immediate aftermath of the housing crisis and according to the New York Times, the more the insurance fund increases, the more mortgages to lower-income borrowers the department can backstop.

Wells Fargo CEO Looks Toward the Future

His fiction and nonfiction have been published in a variety of print and online journals and magazines. To contact Pizzolato, email [email protected] Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Joey Pizzolato Tim Sloan, CEO of Wells Fargo, expressed his expectation that expenses to the third-largest bank will be reduced to around 60 percent of revenue in the second half of 2017, according to a statement issued at a conference hosted by Barclays and reported by CNBC.Wells Fargo has not specified how much money it has set aside for litigation costs, but at its second quarter filings it stated that expenses could exceed $3.3 billion. During the first quarter filings, that figure sat at $2 billion, and these figures do not include nonrecurring costs such as unknown litigation costs. Sloan’s goal is to return the bank to its efficiency ratio that falls somewhere between 55 and 59 percent.Yet, despite current issues, CNBC reports that Wells Fargo’s shares rose to $51.27, an increase of 1.8 percent. Sloan has remained vigilant in the bank’s efforts to right the ship.”We’ve been very focused on opening every door and turning over every rock in the company,” he said. “I can’t promise its exactly over.”Sloan has said the bank’s efficiency rate is unacceptable, which has largely been attributed recent issues the bank has under dealt with. Sloan expected third-quarter lending to be reduced by runoff of its mortgage portfolio, but that those declines will be offset by an increase of nonconforming residential mortgage lending.

University’s commercial sector bucks national trend

first_imgAcross the country the number of spin-off companies founded on the back of University research has fallen to the lowest on record, but Oxford’s commercial arm remains stable.ISIS innovation, the branch of Oxford University which works to protect and commercialise new research and inventions, brought £2.9 m to the University last year, up from £2.4m in 2008.Many universities have seen the income from company creation based on research fall dramatically. Nationally, in the past few years, an average of 210 spin-off companies were created each year by universities on the back of leading academic research. This figure is predicted to have fallen to a mere 50 new companies created in 2009.But ISIS Innovation has not faced such testing times.The number of spin-offs created by ISIS in 2009 remained stable at 3.Of the three spin-offs, two were invested in by overseas clients. In the Daily Telegraph, Tom Hockaday, Managing Director of ISIS innovation, insisted that “there’s no shortage of money in the world. It’s just where it is. We got new investments from Hong Kong and the Middle East. It’s different and noteworthy and … a reflection of things locally.”When asked by Cherwell if the lack of capital would pressure academics into hastily publishing findings in journals, he replied that it “is not a main motivation for researcher’s behaviours. University researchers are quite rightly focussed on their research and teaching activities; in the main commercialisation activities come a distant third in their priorities, and there is no harm in that.”ISIS innovation was founded in 1997 and since then has negotiated, on average, one spin-off every two months. The combined value of these companies now stands at £2 billion.last_img read more

Fighting the fallout of friction

first_img“Friction” has become quite the buzzword in financial services in recent years, and for good reason—it’s a powerful force that can slow down processes, harm efficiency, cause member discomfort and dissatisfaction, and ultimately inhibit an institution’s growth.While strategies for reducing friction have been top of mind for credit union management and executive teams for years now—after all, this is not a new phenomenon—the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic ramifications has brought the issue even more front and center.Filene recently asked more than 150 credit union leaders about sources of friction in their institutions as part of “The Art & Science of Organization,” a two-day virtual discussion sponsored by State National Companies.As a business partner to thousands of credit unions for almost 50 years, we were deeply interested in hearing what these leaders had to say as they do their best to steward their credit unions successfully through these (we won’t say it) (yes, we will) “unprecedented” times.

During the tourist season, Croatia Airlines will connect Croatia with 24 countries

first_imgIt is clear to everyone that transport accessibility is one of the first factors if we talk about the development of tourism, and especially the connection with airlines. Be sure to pay attention to the flight overview, ie. direct air connections of Croatia which is regularly updated with new agreed airlines. Croatia Airlines certainly plays an important role in the whole story. Thus, during this year’s tourist season, it will fly in regular traffic to 30 international and 8 Croatian destinations in 24 countries, which means that the national airline continues to actively contribute to the development of the tourist potential of the Republic of Croatia. Zagreb will be directly connected to 24 European destinations in 22 countries. This year, Croatia Airlines aircraft are expected to have about 5 percent more passengers compared to 2018, in which a record 2,168.863 passengers were transported (2 percent more than in 2017). Increased rush on regular routes begins on the eve of the Easter holidays, which traditionally represent the beginning of the tourist season in Croatia, after which many seasonal lines from the most important emitting markets are gradually introduced, Croatia Airlines points out, adding that at the peak tourist season flights per day. Although Croatia is mostly a car destination, in the last few years there has been a targeted investment in increasing airlines, especially in the pre- and post-season, so that Croatia is more and more connected to emitting markets every year. The novelty is an additional flight on Tuesdays from Zagreb to Dublin, so that passengers on this line will have three flights a week this year – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. last_img read more

Villa wrap up Cole deal

first_img Former Sunderland and Ipswich manager Roy Keane has also been linked with a post on Lambert’s backroom staff. For Cole, the move offers a chance to prolong his career at the top level. Cole has spent the past season and a half back at West Ham, the club where he first made his name after coming through their youth ranks. He was regarded as one of the most gifted players of his generation and was snapped up by Chelsea for £6.6million in 2003. He won three Premier League titles and became an England regular during a successful seven-year spell at Stamford Bridge but injuries eventually led to him falling down the pecking order. A move to Liverpool to 2010 failed to reignite his career but he enjoyed a successful loan spell with Lille before taking up the opportunity to return to Upton Park. He rejoined the Hammers on an 18-month deal but he played only a a bit-part role in the season just concluded. He last started a Barclays Premier League last December, when he scored for West Ham in a 3-3 draw against West Brom. Cole said: “So far I’ve been lucky enough to have a really good career but there’s still a lot more I want to achieve. The fire is still burning in me. “I want to play at the highest level and win things still and this club fits.” Cole believes he can play a prominent role, in his preferred position, for a Villa side he believes has much to look forward to. He said: “There is just so much potential at the club to kick on and I think we’re only going to get better. “When I talked to the manager he said I would be playing in a more central position and, having those fast players in attack and around me, I feel like I can supply them with the bullets and get them the ball in the final third.” Cole’s future had seemed uncertain after he was released by West Ham, but retirement had never been on his mind. He said: “All of the ex-players, all of the professionals that I’ve ever spoken to in my career say, ‘Enjoy it while it lasts because it goes quick, take everything you can out of it.’ “That’s one thing I have done and one thing I’m proud to say is that I’ve enjoyed every day of my career, every moment of it and I want to squeeze as much out of it as I can. “I’m as excited now as I was as a 16-year-old lad going into my first season with West Ham.” Former England midfielder Joe Cole has joined Aston Villa on a free transfer, the club have announced. He told AVTV. “I’m really excited. It all happened really quickly, I got a call maybe a week or 10 days ago and it just felt like it was a really exciting place to come at this moment.” Cole becomes Villa’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of former Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos last week. Manager Paul Lambert is hoping to revamp his squad after two seasons of battling relegation from the Barclays Premier League and Cole was impressed by the Scot’s vision. He said: “This is a massive club and there’s a massive opportunity for the club to push on. That was the main factor. “I spoke to the gaffer and we have similar views on football. He didn’t need to sell the club but he explained what the view is for the future and, like I said, that was the main thing. When I spoke to the manager I knew I’d be signing. “I’ll be coming here and I’ll be learning too. Obviously I’ll bring my experience to the squad but you still learn every day and I want to learn. “I know I’ll learn from the manager, I’ll learn from other players here and going forward together we want to get the best results for Aston Villa.” Further changes are also likely at Villa with owner Randy Lerner having put the club up for sale. The 32-year-old was a free agent after being released by West Ham at the end of last season. Cole, who has also played for Chelsea and Liverpool in his career and won 56 caps for England, has signed a two-year deal at Villa Park. Press Associationlast_img read more

Courtois talks with Real Madrid halted

first_img0Shares0000Thibaut Courtois made nine saves in their 2-1 win over Brazil at the World CupLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 30- Chelsea will not resume talks with Real Madrid over a deal for Thibaut Courtois until they find a suitable replacement for the goalkeeper, Sky Sports News understands.It is thought Courtois will be allowed to leave the club this summer, with Madrid his preferred destination, but Chelsea have yet to make progress on a deal to sign a new keeper. Sky Sports reported last week that Jordan Pickford was their number one target, but the England international is set for contract talks at Everton when he returns to the club this summer.Courtois, who has one year left on his current Chelsea deal, is valued at £32m by Madrid and it is expected that there would be no issue with agreeing personal terms.But, the Belgium keeper will start the new season at Stamford Bridge if no successor can be found before Deadline Day and could then run down his current deal, meaning he would be able to leave for free next summer.Courtois could yet sign a new contract at Chelsea and has previously said that “all options are open”.New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has told reporters he wants to talk directly to Courtois to gauge how the 26-year-old is feeling before making any decision about his future.Chelsea have already signed Rob Green on a one-year deal, but the 38-year-old is expected to act as third choice.-By Sky Sports0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
