Bank of America is one of the leading banks in the US and has been working for decades now. But currently it is going through its worst crisis which is caused mainly due to its own mismanagement and mishandling of the mortgage loans. In order to meet the challenges, they are trying to do some settlement deals with major investors in order to get out of the reigning crisis.

Background of the Story

Bank of America

After being accused of mishandling billions of worth funds in mortgages last year, Bank of America started negotiating with major consortium of investors to settle these major charges. The group has asked for an explanation from Bank of America for mishandling these funds and given them a time frame of two months.

The Accusations

The charges contains the allegations of doing a poor job in the collection of mortgage payments and also poor service provided to borrowers who were having trouble making their payments. They further said that the Bank has not lived up to the underwriting criteria and did a poor job in providing quality mortgage services.

Questions were raised over the warranties provided by the bank on the loans which were offered to the investors in shape of bonds. Moreover, this mishandling of warranties and poor management has lead to the reigning financial crisis and put the bank in deep trouble.

Bank of America purchased Countrywide a while back to avoid bankruptcy during the recent crisis. But the investors wanted to have the same loans issued by Countrywide to recoup their losses. Bank of America initially resisted these allegations and tried to fight for it but soon realized that it was its own poor management and mishandling that lead to the crisis and they agreed to go into the settlement plan.

Settlement with two Giants

As a result of the Bank’s efforts to settle things down, they managed to fix a deal with two of the market giants, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Both these giants themselves were on the verge of collapse last year and were bailed out by the government.

It has been stated by an Economist; Mr. Stan Humphries of Zillow (Real Estate Company) in his interview to the Wall Street Journal, “The middle ground buyer is the one having to fight to get a conventional mortgage”. It does mean that now the option of mortgage has not been in the range of people who belong to middle income strata. So far, Zillow has not offered any comments on the statement of Stan Humphries.

In places such as Arizona and California, the credit score fell by 11 points and 10 points respectively. The most common reason for could be late payments or not paying off your previous balances.
