Class Eligibility

All borrowers in the United States who, from January 1, 2008 to August 9, 2017 (“Settlement Class Period”), inclusive of those dates, were charged by RCS for a hazard, flood, flood-gap, or wind-only LPI Policy for Residential Property issued and/or procured by Insurer Defendants during the Settlement Class Period and who either (i) paid to RCS all or part of the Net Premium for that LPI Policy, or (ii) were charged but did not pay and still owe to RCS the Net Premium for that LPI Policy.

Estimated Amount

Varies

Insurer Defendants have agreed to pay a cash award in the amount of 6% of the Net Premium charged by RCS to the claimant during the Class Period for the LPI Policy, provided that each RCS Settlement Class Member timely submits a valid and properly completed Claim Form and a form of verification of their identity, and either paid a part of or still owes the premium to RCS. Each RCS Settlement Class Member must submit a Claim Form to be eligible to receive a payment. Insurer Defendants also have agreed to injunctive relief from which you may benefit.

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

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), RCS would place insurance in a manner such that RCS allegedly received an unauthorized benefit. Plaintiffs allege further that RCS did so primarily to receive consideration from the Insurer Defendants. Plaintiffs also allege that the way in which LPI policies were obtained and placed caused the premiums and the amount of coverage to be excessive.

  3. Brian Earls says:

    I heard that RCS has a pending lawsuit over force placed insurance. I had RCS for years and they put forced placed insurance on my mortgage. I found out about it after a pipe burst in my house and I tried to file a claim to help with clean up and repairs. They told me that I had forced placed insurance and since it wasn’t coming from a natural disaster they could nothing to help. With me being active duty military it was rough and cost me thousands. Since I’ve had this VA I had Suntrust servicing my mortgage initially, then it when down hill with Countrywide, Bank of America, Residential Credit Solutions.
