CHARLESTON — A Mason County couple is suing Nationwide Mortgage, alleging RESPA violations.
Jeffrey and Vickie DeWeese filed a complaint Feb. 23 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia against Nationwide Advantage Mortgage Co. alleging violation of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act.
According to the complaint, as a result of Nationwide's actions, the DeWeeses have suffered economic harm and were hampered in their ability to adequately monitor their home mortgage payments. The plaintiffs allege Nationwide Advantage Mortgage refused to respond to the plaintiffs' qualified written request and failed to conduct reasonable investigations.
The plaintiffs seek trial by jury, judgment for $1,000 per violation of USC 2605(f)(1)(i) and reasonable attorney fee and costs. They are represented by attorneys Benjamin M. Sheridan and Daniel K. Armstrong of Klein & Sheridan LC in Hurricane.
