  • (1888PressRelease) September 20, 2017 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled Residential Mortgages Lender Liability Litigation: What Lies Ahead in 2018 LIVE Webcast.

    Event Synopsis:
    Lender liability first gained prominence in the mid-1980s and claims made resurgence in the 2000s. Lender liability litigation became popular as a cause of action in the US when courts became less sympathetic to the argument that lenders could be found liable for the borrowers financial distress.

    For years, lenders were the ones who typically sued borrowers, but with lender liability, borrowers became just as likely to sue lenders for breach of loan agreements. It has been long since residential mortgage lenders were obliged and required by the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA) and the Truth In Lending Act (TILA) to disclose to their borrowers the cost of credit to the consumer and the associated cost when closing the loan transaction.

    There will always be borrowers who will fall behind on their loan obligations. With the ever-changing economic landscape and regulatory framework, lenders must keep themselves abreast with the recent trends, common potential litigation risks, and the growing areas of mortgage litigation.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the most important issues and developments in residential mortgages lender liability litigation.
