Attorney General Pam Bondi News Release
"Today's report indicates that 111,000 Floridians have benefited from $9 billion in relief, significantly more than the $8.4 billion that we expected when we entered the settlement. I will continue to hold the banks accountable by demanding full compliance with the settlement, including the requirements designed to ensure that banks treat homeowners fairly in the mortgage servicing process,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi.
The banks disclosed that nationally they have extended more than $50 billion in gross relief to nearly 622,000 borrowers. These figures include active first lien trial modifications and completed relief.
In June, the Monitor plans to submit his first required reports to the Court concerning his review of the banks’ compliance with the settlement’s servicing standards.
