CARSON CITY —Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto wants Nevadans whose homes were in foreclosure in 2009 or 2010 to know that the deadline to submit an application for a free, federal independent foreclosure review is July 31.

Ordered by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, the independent foreclosure review will determine whether Nevadans and others around the country suffered financial injury and should receive compensation or other remedy because of errors or other problems that occurred during the foreclosure process.

“I encourage Nevadans hurt by foreclosure errors and who are eligible, to apply for a free review before the July 31 deadline,” Masto said. “In doing so, beware of anyone who asks you to pay a fee for any foreclosure review service and immediately report those persons or companies to my office.”

To be eligible, the foreclosure process must have been active between Jan. 1, 2009 and Dec. 31, 2010. The property securing the loan must have been a primary residence, and the mortgage must have been serviced by one of the following companies:

• America’s Servicing Co.

• Aurora Loan Services

• BAC Home Loans Servicing

• Bank of America

• Beneficial

• Chase

• Citibank

• CitiFinancial

• CitiMortgage

• Countrywide

• EMC

• EverBank/EverHome Mortgage Company

• Financial Freedom

• GMAC Mortgage

• HFC

• HSBC

• IndyMac Mortgage Services

• MetLife Bank

• National City Mortgage

• PNC Mortgage

• Sovereign Bank

• SunTrust Mortgage

• U.S. Bank

• Wachovia

• Washington Mutual

• Wells Fargo

• Wilshire Credit Corporation

More than 4.3 million forms and letters explaining the process were sent to eligible homeowners in 2011. Forms and information are available at www.independentforeclosurereview.com or by calling 888-952-9105 between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, and between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday.

Not every finding will result in compensation or other remedy. All requests for review forms must be submitted online or postmarked by July 31.
