Predatory lending can put well-meaning people into a vicious cycle that makes it nearly impossible to make ends meet. From pursuing a mortgage or accepting an offer that was engineered to fail which results in so many Americans pain and hardship.

Typically, lender liability claims arise when a financial institution or fiduciary violates a duty of good faith or fair dealing to its customer – borrower or has assumed such a degree of control over the borrower that it assumes a fiduciary duty. Lenders can be subject to borrower litigation under a variety of legal claims usually involving breach of contract and/or fraud.

Deals go wrong, but it is unfair if the deal was drafted in a way to take advantage of law-abiding citizens. Buying a home or conducting business is a very complicated process and both parties need to assure that deal making is conducted truthfully and transparently.
