File Date

Hagens Berman believes that Aurora Loan Services used these "workout agreements" to dupe homeowners into paying tens of thousands of dollars for months on end while the company purported to work on their behalf to secure loan modifications.

After a period of months, Aurora Loan Services foreclosed on the homes without giving the borrowers any notice that their requests for loan modification were denied and without allowing them access to any "cure method," despite the provisions of the "workout agreements," according to the suit.

The suit accuses Aurora Loan Services of negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, violation of the California Unfair Business Practices Act and other violations of California law.

Hagens Berman believes the "workout agreements" were fraudulent in nature and seeks to have the agreements declared void. The firm also seeks an injunction against Aurora Loan Services forbidding the company from continued offering of its deceptive "workout agreements", damages to be determined at trial and trial and attorneys' fees.
