To see if you will be affected by this class action, you first have to determine if you are a member of the Settlement Class.
The “Settlement Class” includes all borrowers in the United States who, within the Class Period (as defined below), were charged by PHH Mortgage Corporation under a hazard, flood, flood gap, or wind-only LPI Policy for Residential Property, and who, within the Class Period, either (i) paid to PHH the Net Premium for that LPI Policy or (ii) did not pay to and still owe PHH the Net Premium for that LPI Policy. Excluded from the Class are: (i) individuals who are or were during the Class Period officers or directors of the Defendants or any of their respective affiliates; (ii) any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States or any State, and their spouses; (iii) borrowers who only had an LPI Policy that was cancelled in its entirety such that any premiums charged and/or collected were fully refunded to the borrower or the
borrower’s escrow account; and, (iv) all borrowers who file a timely and proper request to be excluded from the Class.
The “Class Period” is from January 1, 2006 through July 31, 2015.
“LPI Policy” means a lender-placed residential hazard, flood, flood gap, or wind-only insurance policy or policies issued by ASIC, SGIC, or VIIC, or another insurance company and placed pursuant to a mortgage loan agreement, home equity loan agreement, or home equity line of credit serviced by PHH to cover a borrower’s failure to maintain the required insurance coverage on the residential property securing the loan.
