A court authorized this website. Please read it carefully. Your legal rights will be affected whether or not you act. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
Your rights may be affected by the proposed settlement (“Settlement”) of this class action lawsuit if you are a borrower on a residential mortgage loan on properties in the United States whose loans were serviced by Freedom Mortgage Corporation (“Freedom”) and you paid a fee to Freedom for making a loan payment by telephone or the internet on or after September 14, 2017 (the “Settlement Class” or “Settlement Class Members”). Freedom’s records identify you as a Settlement Class Member.
SUMMARY OF YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT
Do Nothing And Receive a Payment
If you are entitled to payment under the Settlement, you do not have to do anything to receive it. If the Court approves the Settlement and it becomes final and effective, and you remain in the Settlement Class, you will automatically receive a payment. You will give up your right to bring your own lawsuit against Freedom about the claims in this case.
Exclude Yourself From The Settlement Deadline: November 16, 2021
Instead of doing nothing, you may ask to be excluded from the lawsuit. If you do so, you will receive no benefit from the Settlement, but you retain your right to sue on your own. Should you exclude yourself from the Settlement, you should understand that Freedom will have the right to assert all defenses it may have to any claims that you may seek to assert.
Object Deadline: November 16, 2021
You may object to the Settlement and have your objections heard at the December 17, 2021 Final Approval Hearing.
