Utah to get $171M in huge foreclosure deal
Mortgages » Herbert hails “historic” $25B settlement with five of largest U.S. banks.

< Previous Page

Assistant Attorney General Wade Farraway, who represented Utah in the negotiations, said talks also are ongoing with nine other banks, and he expected a settlement with them that would add to the first one.

The first five banks represent about 60 percent of loans in Utah, while the next nine are about 20 percent, he said. The final 20 percent are mostly state banks and credit unions that followed state laws in any foreclosures, Farraway said.
