Citimortgage foreclosed on my home while I was refinancing

Customer Question

Citimortgage foreclosed on my home while I was refinancing it. I have documentation from The Foreclosure Review Board that the whole process of taking my home was done improperly. At this point I just want the foreclosure off my credit profile. Lexington Law is repairing my credit but this is beyond the scope of our contract.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I look forward to providing you information. Please note:

(1) this is general information and is not legal advice. I never propose a specific course of action. There is no attorney-client relationship or privilege that is formed when communicating to an expert on this site. The site repeats this disclaimer numerous times. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms; and

I am very sorry you are dealing with this situation. Unfortunately, you will need to retain a local attorney to initiate a lawsuit against Citimortgage to forcibly require the removal of the foreclosure and potentially pay you damages for the wrongful foreclosure. Even if Citimortgage illegally foreclosed on the property and have an obligation to remove any negative information from the credit bureaus and may owe you compensation for doing so, a local attorney will be needed to enforce these rights of the consumer. It is very unlikely that the bank will voluntarily rectify the situation.
