On July 11, the Denver Post reported that Colorado Attorney General (AG) John Suthers is investigating whether foreclosure law firms are inflating fees that are added to the cost of the foreclosure and mortgage balance, and subsequently are passed on to borrowers, lenders, and investors. The AG has not filed charges against any firms, but has moved to enforce subpoenas his office issued seeking information from numerous law firms about the foreclosure fees they charged. The investigation covers all costs claimed by the firms, including costs related to posting foreclosure notices on homeowners’ doors, which the AG claims substantially exceed the market rate.
