Beware, lenders and loan servicers are at risk for lender liability claims brought by borrowers.
Despite recent improvements in the nationwide economy, credit markets are still tight and loan defaults remain high. As a result, both lenders and loan servicers are at risk for lender liability claims brought by borrowers, guarantors, and even third parties. For years, these claims were used mainly as stall tactics during foreclosure and bankruptcy proceedings, but now they are increasingly used as leverage during workout negotiations. As the market improves and borrowers have more potential equity to protect, they are becoming even more aggressive in using these claims. Third parties have also become more creative in pursuing claims against lenders related to borrower misconduct.
This topic will analyze the most common lender liability claims and highlight the areas during the life of a loan when such claims arise. Emerging theories of liability will be explored, including the recent resurgence in the use of civil RICO and the rise of claims against lenders related to fraud or other misdeeds committed by the borrower. Equally important, you will be offered concrete, practical steps for avoiding lender liability claims. Senior management, loan officers, workout officers, special servicers, and counsel will be able to improve their ability to spot potential lender liability risks, assess claims asserted by borrowers, guarantors and third parties, and avoid lender liability claims, thereby avoiding unnecessary litigation and maximizing the lenderís recovery in a challenging legal and economic environment.
