Indiana Sues California Foreclosure Consultant

Last updated on Thursday, July 28, 2011

(UNDATED) - Indiana has sued a California “foreclosure consultant.”

Companies which say they'll broker a deal to get your home out of foreclosure aren't necessarily breaking the law.

But the state-run Indiana Foreclosure Prevention Network does the same work for no charge.

What is illegal, thanks to a law passed this year, is for those companies to collect fees up front without posting a $25,000 bond with the state.

Premier Legal Advocates didn't.

The state wants refunds for seven customers, plus fines.
