Important Information About Caliber Home Loans Class Action Settlement
Caliber Home Loans is a large non-bank mortgage servicer based in Texas with a nationwide portfolio. They have North Carolina branch offices in Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, High Point, Kernersville, Raleigh, and Wilmington. Like a lot of non-bank mortgage servicers we deal with, Caliber seems to acquire “at-risk” loan portfolios, meaning that they often have acquired your loan after you were in default. In 2015, a national class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana against Caliber Home Loans, Ashak et al. v. Caliber Home Loans. The lawsuit alleged that Caliber was calling people on their cell phones without their prior express consent. These robodials were alleged to violate the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act If you were receiving robo-calls on your cell phone from Caliber Home Loans when you’ve never done business with them, or asked them not to call you, you would have a potential claim against Caliber. Those claims may be resolved through a nation-wide Caliber Home Loans class action settlement if you do not move quickly.
Caliber agreed to pay $2,895,000 as part of the class action settlement, which sounds big, but it is expected to only provide $70-$100 per claim to each claimant. Under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, if you were receiving unwanted calls to your cell phone, you would be entitled to $500 per call. As you can see, you may want to opt out of your class action settlement and pursue a claim on your own with a North Carolina TCPA attorney.
