Nationstar / Mr. Cooper and Credit Report Errors
If your home mortgage originated with or was recently sold to Nationstar (aka: Mr. Cooper), you should be aware that some people have experienced problems with inaccuracies on their credit reports. Consumers have reported a number of issues with the loan servicing company, including everything from late fees for loan payments received 1 day prior to the due date, to lost loan paperwork, lost checks, returned checks, unexplained fees, and significant errors with credit reporting agencies.
Nationstar, now one of the largest mortgage bill collectors in the United States, has been accused of problems affecting its customers credit reports for years. In the last year, Nationstar has faced several multi-million-dollar settlements at the state level to resolve allegations of overcharging borrowers, offering “unfair and deceptive” mortgage modifications, and numerous deficiencies and violations, sometimes resulting in consequences for the borrowers including increased risk of foreclosure.
Recently, Nationstar underwent a rebranding campaign, changing the name of its loan servicing division to “Mr. Cooper”. Some people have speculated the rebranding is an attempt to put the negative publicity spotlighted by numerous class action lawsuits, settlements, fines and sanctions behind it.
