Onewest Bank Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure Process

If your loan is serviced by Onewest Bank and you are thinkin of applying or a Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure on this loan then we at ACG will try to make sure that you go through a standard process as compared to other companies:

  1. To initiate the process a team member of our team of professionals will have to place a call to Onewest Bank to talk to your loan counselor and sometimes we have to follow up with an appointment but once we have spoken the process is initiated.
  2. You are required to submit a paperwork called Request for Mortgage Assistance(RMA) application.
  3. Before they start the DIL Process you may first have to go through a review for Loan Modification.
  4. Sometimes Onewest Bank may pressurize you to first sell your home to someone else to prevent themselves from the liability of owning a property.
  5. The title of your property will be checked.
  6. The investor will ask Onewest Bank to do a valuation on the property on its behalf.
  7.  For the next step, our team will negotiate relocation and time frame terms with Onewest bank.
  8. Lastly, your lender provides a response to the deed in lieu of foreclosure made to them.

If you had an experience of dealing with Onewest Bank in the past you will have noticed that the above steps only sound easy but are not in reality. ACG is here to help our customers with any difficulties with mortgage relief so you have nothing to worry about. Being in this business for more than a decade we know we will have to run around from department to department to do the work for you. Maybe the loan modification department has your file because you have been trying to get a loan modification from them for a long time. Maybe it is so that they want to pressurize you to sell your home so the short sale department has your file. We are here to do everything for you and most importantly you should be able to figure out when they are sending you in the wrong direction. Often clients come to us after submitting the wrong information on their deed in lieu application, getting denied, and not being able to figure out what happened. We can help you through the process of doing a deed in lieu of foreclosure even if that means reviewing a decline made by Onewest Bank.

Onewest Bank Loan Deed In Lieu Timeline

Just like other companies the timeline of the Deed In Lieu Process of Onewest Bank is very variable. These are just a few of the hoops we jump through when dealing with a deed in lieu with Onewest Bank.

  • To begin with,  Being only a mortgage servicer and usually always representing the interests of an investor Onewest Bank has to follow a set of rules called “PSA” or Pooling and Servicing Agreement that governs the pools of mortgages they service. The PSA is like a  contract between servicer and beneficiary of the mortgage note. The investor usually grants Onewest the authority to make only some of the decisions themselves. Some investors such as Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC) have pulled almost all decision making authority from many servicers and take care of many of the decisions themselves. As always the greater the number of hands in the put the more layers of bureaucracy you’re going to deal with.
  • Additionally, If your loan has a sale date then this will have a huge effect on the timeline of the Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure process. Onewest Loan becomes very difficult to deal with if a sale has to be stopped to complete the DIL Process. There are sale dates for every day of the week for a company like Onewest Bank so the dates are not worked on as quickly as you want. Remember this business is a first come first serve but it is also influenced by foreclosure status and proximity to the sale date.
  • Finally, All negotiators were not created equally. What makes the process tricky is that this goes for both sides. Miscommunication can lead to certain failure while dealing at this kind of large level. Representing a homeowner during the process of Deed in Lieu Of Foreclosure is a very specialized skill that can be learned through experience only. Often you will be put through the multiple levels of management including approval from an investor as mentioned above depending on what their total losses are for the banking institution who owns the interest in the loan.

Onewest Bank Deed In Lieu Timeline Conclusion: The range of factors on which the DIL process of OneWest Bank depends is very wide ranged. Onewest Bank will be able to make a decision lot quicker if they can make it themselves. What the lender perceives as the value of the property will also affect the timeline. If you have other debts then your ability to get DIL will get limited. How fast Onewest Bank’s Loss Mitigation department receives the Onewest Bank Deed In Lieu Forms to apply for mortgage assistance are received (readable) and other factors will come together to affect how long it will take for your Onewest Bank Deed In Lieu application will take to be Approved.

If Your Onewest Bank Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure Was Denied There May Still Be Options.


How To Fix A Onewest Bank Deed In Lieu Decline?

OneWest 1 Star Review:

Pasadena – Main Branch of One West Bank.  Called yesterday to inquire about transfer of an account.  They couldn’t locate the paperwork.  Gives one cause for concern.  I called today and they said they would look into it.  I had to ask for the bank manager to get the job done… simply confirm that the bank transfer request was received.  Do you really have to ask for a bank manager to get service?

Reason I needed to follow up?  Two years ago they didn’t transfer my money to another bank.  When I called during the maturity grace period of the account to find out what was going wrong, they said the other bank had not correctly filled out the paperwork.  They did not want to talk to the bank to settle the matter and would not return the bank’s call.  In the end the maturity date of the account expired and the money was stuck there.  Urggggg!.

OneWest 1 Star Review:

Recognizing that this financial institution was recently purchased by CIT, nonetheless, they do not seem to be interested in relationship banking whatsoever.  I am just such a person who has an existing commercial loan with them for the last 8 years.  I have never missed a payment even during the tough years of 2008-2010 when we all went thru a Great Recession/Depression.

Today, I called and asked my loan officer if they would consider refinancing the existing loan in order to lock-in current low interest rates before Fed Chairwoman Yellen raises rates in the next few weeks.  My existing loan has a balance of $3.5 million.  And so what was I told?  Sorry, but we don’t finance anything under $25 million.  Doesn’t matter what the quality of the underlying asset is,  or the 840 FICO score that I have, or the self-integrity that I have to offer.  They just blow you away as simple as that.

OneWest 1 Star Review:

I made the mistake of staying with OneWest Bank after they took over for bankrupt IndyMac bank. They were ok for a couple years. Now they have started to add fees for just about everything. They started with a $30 “Trustee Fee” on my IRA account. I avoid fees like the plague so I contacted them and asked them to waive it. They wouldn’t so I told them I would close the account when the cd matured. I attempted to do that but they needed so much paperwork just to close the account that I missed the cutoff date for the renewal window. So they ended up charging me  a $25 fee just to close plus an $89 penalty for missing the cutoff. Needless to say, I’m not pleased. And plan on contacting  the California Department of Financial Services. And plan on moving my money market account (also with OneWest) to another bank. And, once the new rules are in place, refinancing my mortgage (also with OneWest) with another bank. Obviously, snatching fees is much more important to OneWest than customer loyalty.
