Kentuckians receive notice of mortgage settlement
272 days ago
(AP:FRANKFORT, Ky.) Kentuckians are being urged to watch their mailboxes for postcards alerting them to a financial settlement.
Notices were mailed Monday to more than 5,000 Kentuckians who were foreclosed upon between Jan. 1, 2008, and Dec. 31, 2011, and are now eligible for a share of $10.7 million.
Conway said the payments will be up to $2,000 for people who had loans through Ally/GMAC, Bank of America Corp., Citi Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co., or Wells Fargo Co.
The funds come from a $25 billion settlement between 49 states and the five banks. The settlement will provide relief nationally to thousands of homeowners who were foreclosed upon after the housing bubble burst.
