Kirby McInerney LLP Files Lawsuit Against Homeward Residential Holdings Inc., QBE Insurance Corporation and WL Ross & Co
Jan 6 16
A putative class action lawsuit has been filed against Homeward Residential Holdings Inc., QBE Insurance Corporation, WL Ross & Co., and certain of their affiliates in connection with an allegedly unlawful scheme to recoup overstated reimbursements for force-placed hazard insurance from homeowners. The lawsuit, filed by the law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP, alleges that QBE Insurance and its affiliates gave Homeward secret premium rebates or kickbacks on its force-placed hazard insurance, but homeowners were nevertheless charged for reimbursement based on the full premiums materially in excess of Homeward's true costs, which had been reduced by the rebates. The overstated force-placed hazard insurance charges were incorporated into homeowners monthly mortgage bills, and charged to homeowners mortgage escrow accounts. Mortgages require borrowers to maintain insurance to protect the lenders interest in the property. If the borrowers insurance lapses, the mortgage entitles the lender to purchase force-placed hazard insurance and be reimbursed by the borrower for the cost. The lawsuit alleges that defendants concealed the alleged kickbacks by laundering them through sham and collusive transactions, including: $10 million paid to Homeward as purported compensation for fictitious marketing services, the issuance of warrants on QBE stock worth $85 million to WL Ross, which owned Homeward, more than $16 million in phony insurance commissions paid to Homeward, and at least $25 million in below-cost, outsourced mortgage servicing services provided to Homeward through an affiliate of QBE Insurance.
