Case Summary:

This lawsuit alleges that Wells Fargo charged mortgagee's for a property inspections if the mortgage payment went past due. Specifically, Wells Fargo ordered a property inspection whenever a borrower fell behind on mortgage payments by forty-five days or more, and then ordered subsequent inspections every twenty-five to thirty-five days for as long as the borrower remained delinquent. Plaintiffs claim that these property inspections ordered by Wells Fargo were unnecessary and that their cost should not have been assessed to borrowers. Plaintiffs also alleged that the true nature of these charges was concealed from borrowers by labeling them as “Other Charges.”
