MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 12, 2010 -- GMAC Mortgage is committed to preserving the integrity of the foreclosure process and in that spirit has engaged several leading legal and accounting firms to conduct independent reviews of its foreclosure procedures in each of the 50 states.
In addition, foreclosure sale files nationwide receive an additional review by a specialized team to ensure that: home preservation procedures have been fully followed; the timing and substance of the foreclosure is appropriate; and the file itself is in good order and complies with all laws and requirements of the state of jurisdiction.
Foreclosure is a very serious matter and only implemented when all other home preservation options have been fully exhausted. We are taking these additional steps to restore confidence in the process, which is critical for the stability of the home and mortgage industry.
In addition to the nationwide measures, the review and remediation activities related to cases involving judicial affidavits in the 23 states continues and has been underway for approximately two months. As each of those files is reviewed, and remediated when needed, the foreclosure process resumes. GMAC Mortgage has found no evidence to date of any inappropriate foreclosures.
GMAC Mortgage is committed to working through this matter diligently and encourages borrowers with questions to contact a customer service representative at 866-304-4682 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information can be found by visiting www.gmacmortgage.com.
