violations of federal law (TILA, RESPA, FDCPA, HOEPA, UCC, and others)
and state laws (common law, fees, yield spreads, contract law, and
others). The audit also looks for commissions violations,
refund eligibility, misapplied payments, calculation errors,
application fraud, and more.

1. TILA Violations
Right of Rescission - The
rescission right is absolute for 3 days, but it is extended for up to 3
years if certain material TILA disclosures were not provided correctly
at the time of the originalcredit
transaction or a proper notice of the right to cancel was not
given. The creditor must give each consumer 2 copies of a notice
of the right to rescind. If you were never notified of your Right
To Cancel, certain TILA disclosures were not accurate, or if
your tried to Cancel and were not allowed to, you maybe eligible to
have your loan canceled if you refinanced less than 3 years ago.
APR and Finance Charge Violations - Incorrect disclosure of these numbers could allow you to cancel!
violations can have very severe consequences for the lender up to and
including having the homeowner receive the property FREE and CLEAR!
2. Mortgage Was Improperly Sold
the people who acquired your mortgage and made it into a security
changed the mortgage agreement without your permission and made the
mortgage unusable. They don't have a right to enforce the mortgage
agreement you granted. You made a deal, if you don't pay the mortgage,
a SPECIFIC party can take your house away from you. You didn't say
ANYONE could take your house away from you.
the fact the creditor is owed the money, the creditor does have the
right to foreclose. Our Program is designed to let everyone know the
creditor does not have the right to foreclose and compel the creditor
to workout an alternative payment arrangement.
you create a mortgage, you create 2 documents. The note and mortgage.
The note is the IOU and the Mortgage is the legal agreement that gives
the right to take your house away if you don't pay. When you failed to
pay, the party that purchased the Note tried to use the mortgage to
foreclose. However, when the party "securitized" the mortgage, the
added new conditions and new parties that you unaware and didn't agree
making the mortgage agreement unenforce-able. So, although you still
owe the money to the other party, they cannot use foreclosure to take
3. Predatory Practices (i.e., Non-Repayable Loan, Fraudulent Appraisals, etc.)
homeowners received loans that they were never able to repay, had
inflated appraisals, or other potentially fraudulent activity.
Our program runs tests on your mortgage documents to see if your
loan meets these criteria.
4. Produce the Note (Judicial or Non-Judicial States)
If the lender cannot produce the original note
(which is a negotiable instrument), they do not have the right to
foreclose on your property. FreeMortgageAudit.net, will provide
what you need to force the lender to show proof that they have
possession of the note. Do not let the lender re-establish a copy!
Do I need to be behind?
How is an audit different than a loan modification?
loan modification is where you ask the lender to change the terms of
your mortgage so your payments can become more affordable. For
example, they could lower your rate to 3% and/or extend your term to 40
years or so.
An audit does not modify the loan terms, but it can make it easier to get them modified.
Why should anyone do an audit to lower their payment?
work to help borrowers get modified payments because the lender now has more of an incentive to negotiate or come to a settlement/agreement with the borrower.
Will this impact my credit?
on your situation, it could actually help your credit because
the lender must stop reporting to credit agencies once they acknowledge
What if I am in foreclosure and I want to sell my home?
A successful audit can give you more time to find the right buyer.
Can an audit help if I have received a sale date?
Yes. However, you may need to have an automatic stay filed if your date is less than 60 days away!
Can the mortgage audit help me if my home has already been sold?
as long as you live in a state that allows for a redemption
period, you can still challenge your lender and stop the sale
from being completed!!
could also use the audit results to sue the lender for damages and
remove any negative reporting on the credit report regardless of your

The Refund Checker Audit
How much can be refunded? And how is it paid?
amount refunded will vary by loan, but very large refunds have been
found for some borrowers greater than $30,000. Usually the error is
corrected by adjusting the principal balance of the loan. In some
circumstances, the borrower may be able to obtain additional tax
benefits because of errors as well.
What loans qualify for an audit?
ARM Loans AND fixed rate loans where the borrower has made extra
principal payments AND has documentation. Also, if your loan was
transferred, and you believe the new servicer did not use the correct
How long does it take for the lender to process my refund check?
general, most lenders today will respond promptly when notified about
any mistakes in computations. Since these mistakes are inadvertent,
most lenders want to make corrections and make a full refund or credit
to any borrower bringing the mistakes to the bank’s attention.

contacting the State Banking Regulator or an attorney.
