July 12 (Bloomberg) -- Wells Fargo & Co., the largest U.S. mortgage lender, will pay $125 million to settle federal claims it violated fair-lending laws, according to a person with direct knowledge of the agreement.

The case relates to independent mortgage brokers who worked with the bank, said a person with knowledge of the inquiry who requested anonymity because the accord hasn’t been made public. The deal may be announced as early as today.

Mary Eshet, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco-based lender, and Mitchell Rivard, a Justice Department spokesman, declined to comment.
