Home Ownership Equity Protection Act

HOPEA

HOEPA applies to refinancing and home equity loans. It addresses deceptive and unfair practices in home equity lending. This law says that a mortgage assignee is subject to all claims and defenses that a borrower could have asserted against the original lender. In other words, a mortgage assignee is prohibited from claiming to be a holder in due course and hiding behind the fact that it did not make the loan. It also governs the interest and fees that can be charged on refinanced and home equity loans.

We have nothing but praise for the Coxwell Attorneys! They were a comfort in a time of stress. They explained our options and once we decided our path, they guided us through each step (explaining and re-assuring us along the way). We highly recommend Coxwell Attorneys! Thad & Janet Brumfield
