Homeward Residential, QBE Insurance Corporation and WL Ross & Co. Faces Amended Class Action Lawsuit over Mortgage Escrow Charges for Force-Placed Hazard Insurance

An amended complaint has been filed in a class action lawsuit against Homeward Residential, QBE Insurance Corporation, WL Ross & Co., and certain of their affiliates in connection with an allegedly unlawful scheme to recoup overstated disbursements for force-placed hazard insurance from homeowners. The amended complaint, filed by the law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP on March 8, 2016 in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, 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 disbursements, 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.
