If you currently reside in Connecticut and re-financed a residential mortgage that may have been over-charged, then you may be eligible for a potential award from the Chicago Title Insurance Class Action Lawsuit. This lawsuit claims that they improperly failed to charge the discounted refinance rate for lenders’ title insurance policies in some residential mortgage refinance transactions. Chicago Title denies the allegations but decided to settle the matter to mitigate ongoing litigation expenses. Misrepresenting these borrowers that the inflated amounts being charged are correct, and failing to disclose to these borrowers that they are entitled to hundreds of dollars in savings is a violation of title insurance for Connecticut Law. If you are eligible, file a claim by May 29, 2018 to receive your award!
