Princeton woman sues mortgage servicer

By Whitney Brakken | Sep 9, 2013

PRINCETON - A Princeton woman is suing over claims she was exploited by her mortgage servicer.

Jamie Lane filed a lawsuit on June 25 in the Circuit Court of Mercer County, against Nationstar Mortgage LLC, citing negligence, fraud, breach of contract, unlawful debt collection, equity abhors forfeiture and estoppel.

Lane says she first applied for a loan modification in July 2012 and Nationstar claimed that it would evaluate her application within 30 days, but did not. Thereafter, Lane contacted Nationstar on multiple occasions in order to attempt to get a loan modification, according to the complaint.

Lane alleges that Nationstar instructed her to stop making payments until her loan modification was reviewed, but instead they ultimately foreclosed on her home.

Nationstar also failed to engage in loss mitigation instead of foreclosure, made misrepresentations, breached terms within the deed of trust and engaged in unlawful debt collection, according to the complaint.

Lane is seeking damages for the needless foreclosure of her home and other relief. She is seeking an undetermined amount of damages.

She is being represented by Fayetteville law firm Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard PLLC.

Circuit Court of Mercer County Case No. 13-C-260.
