- Excerpt from RESPA:

Roth v. CitiMortgage Inc., 13-3839-CV, 2014 WL 2853549 (2d Cir. June 24, 2014). In Roth v. CitiMortgage Inc., the Second Circuit held that although the mortgagor’s attorney had sent three letters to defendant CitiMortgage requesting various mortgage related information sent by her lawyer, the mortgagor’s RESPA claim was properly dismissed on the basis that her lawyer’s letters were not sent to CitiMortgage’s designated QWR address. Accordingly, the requests were not QWRs under RESPA and did not trigger CitiMortgage’s QWR duties under RESPA.
