Case Name

Strickland, et al., v. Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC, et al.
Case No. 1:16-cv-25237-JG
United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida

Case Summary

Settling Plaintiffs allege that when a borrower was required to have insurance for his or her property pursuant to a residential mortgage or home equity loan or line of credit, and evidence of acceptable coverage was not provided (for example, when the insurance policy did not exist or had lapsed), Carrington would place insurance in a manner such that Carrington allegedly received an unauthorized benefit. Settling Plaintiffs allege further that Carrington did so primarily to receive “kickbacks” or other consideration from AMIG Defendants and/or SWBC. Settling Plaintiffs also allege that the way in which LPI policies were obtained and placed caused the charges to borrowers attributed to premiums and the amount of coverage to be excessive.

Carrington, AMIG Defendants, and SWBC expressly deny Settling Plaintiffs’ allegations and assert their actions were and are fully authorized under the mortgage instruments and by law. They also expressly deny that they did anything wrong. There has been no court decision on the merits of this case and no finding that Carrington, AMIG Defendants, or SWBC committed any wrongdoing.

    I would like to get rebates for the products I purchased.
    Thank You.

    Sincerely,

    Rose Marie Quinones

    ADMIN – Hi Rosie,

    To get settlements you must first locate products you have purchased on our page and then file a claim

  2. Barbara says:

    Question? So was it lawful to backdate the force placed insurance 8 mo ths, homeowner had no odea they wete wirhout homeowners as the Regular insurance company sent Csrrington a bill & Carrinfton did not pay it
    The overpriced Force Placed Ins put the homeowner in a hardship

    ADMIN – Hi Barbara,

    I have no idea what you are trying to ask.

    • David says:

      I believe I’m having the same issue. I purchased insurance out of pocket for this past year. The insurance company notified Carrington and I faxed the insurance info myself as well. Carrington claims they never received and placed forced insurance on my mortgage charged to my escrow account. I essentially paid two Insurance companies for the entire year. This is made worse by the fact I expected to pay less monthly on my mortgage to replenish the out of pocket insurance which was on my credit card gaining interest, or that money could have gone toward principal on my loan.

  3. Gislaine Telfort says:

    What is the updates on this settlement? I know that they a hearing sometime in January for finally approval.

    Thanks,
    Gislaine

    ADMIN – Hi Gis,

  4. Steve says:

    I had a mortgage through bank of America and now Carrington mortgage have taken it over n Feb. 2018. My monthly payment have gone up $123.00 and they’re sending foreclosure letters. Does anyone have or had this problem with them and what was done to correct this.

    ADMIN – Hi Steve,

    Have you asked why your payment went up?

    • Erica says:

      Steve,

      I was in the group with you. My mortgage was sold in Feb 2018 by BOA.

      I called Carrington Mortgage Services about the same increase. I was told that it was due to them being allowed to perform property assessments. However, BOA had performed one in JAN 2018 which increased the amount. Carrington did another assessment in March 2018 which increased my monthly mortgage payment. Then Carrington did it again in May 2018 with another increase. So this company is a bunch of hustlers. I looked up the reviews for this company and they have terrible reviews. People’s reviews strongly encourage others to get away from Carrington Mortgage Services.

      I’m looking to see if there is a new lawsuit for this company for those of us who just had our mortgage sold to Carrington.

    • Loretta ramos says:

      That’s exactly what happened to me. I had 2% interest with Bank of America then when Carrington mortgage took over they automatically raised my interest to 5% n if I didn’t accept it i could pay entire loan off, they’re crooks n raised my mortgage $600. Im discusted

    • Johanna says:

      Same here. We mailed in the paperwork that we received for this class action suit against Carrington well over a year ago and haven’t heard anything since. I had actually totally forgotten about it until I just read something about it and realized we never heard back. Hoping we hear something soon.

  8. Kim says:

    Just wondering if or when will settlement checks will be issued about how long does it usually take after settlement been approved thank you

    ADMIN – Hi Kim,

    The deadline is too recent to have an update.

  9. Mike says:

    It’s been two months, how long till they send out checks?

    ADMIN – Hi Mike,

    On occasion it can take years for a settlement to be approved and paid.

  10. Jerry says:

    If a settlement has been reached what’s the update ?

    ADMIN – Hi Jerry,

    The Court will hold a hearing on January 22, 2018, to determine whether to approve the Settlement. If the Court approves the Settlement, there may be appeals after that. It is always uncertain when any appeals, if filed, will be resolved. Cash payments will be mailed after the Settlement becomes final and effective, which means after all appeals have been resolved.

    Please be patient.

  25. Rita Schroeder says:

    WE NEED TO START ANOTHER CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST CARRINGTON FOR ALL OF THEIR FRAUDULENT DEALINGS……THEY CLAIMED I OWED THEM 750,000 ON MY HOUSE AND THEN AFTER GOVERNMENT “HELP” CARRINGTON MGT. REFIGURE IT ACCURATELY I OWED $380,000. I AM STILL QUESTIONING THAT FIGURE BECAUSE IT HAD FORCED PLACE INSURANCE AT DOUBLE THE PRICE AND GOT SOLD TO ANOTHER MORTGAGE SERVICER DURING THE SUIT AND CARRINGTON GOT IT BACK??????? 916 -224-7482

    • Lynn Vernon says:

      If I am reading the paperwork correctly, by agreeing to be a part of this Settlement Class, according to Section 10 of the Settlement Agreement, members agree to not sue or be a part of any other lawsuit against the Defendants about any issues that potentially could have been raised in this case. So, hopefully your issues with Carrington were not mentioned in court in any way. That’s the way I understand Section 10 of the Settlement Agreement.

      ADMIN – Hi Lynn,

      You are saying that you are not going to bring up a lawsuit for the same thing.

  26. Kim says:

    I just seen too were checks are to be mailed out in September not sure when in September but hopefully soon I will post if we get one Thanks

  27. Jessica Smith says:

    I just got my check and it is a lot less than I expected. 10% of premium for multiple years should have been several hundred. I only got $132. Better than the nothing I was expecting though, I suppose.

  28. Mike says:

    I got charged twice for insurance got 82. What a joke. Paid 4200 got 80 lmao not even worth it

  29. Jose G Zamora says:

    What can I do when I didn’t know about class action claims and I have a clam case

    ADMIN – Hi Jose,

    If the deadline has passed there is nothing you can do.

  30. Loretta ramos says:

    What a joke. I received a $100.00 check. Who are the crooks here, Carrington or these attorneys. But one good thing I’ve gotten outta this, is awareness to how shady Carrington is. Now im going back to check everything they did because my mortgage balance is way off. Karma will get everyone who’s cheated us honest hard working people. Just wait..
