The $25 billion national mortgage settlement agreement was reached back in 2011, and was intended to prevent homeowners from losing their homes to foreclosures due to abuses by the lenders.  The settlement was meant to help stem foreclosures by offering financial assistance and improved loan servicing for consumers.  Joseph A. Smith, Jr., who is in charge of overseeing compliance with the national mortgage accord, said he believes the lenders can do better and intends to use his enforcement powers from the settlement to ensure compliance.  Read the full article here.
