Report: $5 million spent on foreclosure fees, expenses


PROVIDENCE (AP) — A report on a federal court plan established to mediate Rhode Island’s foreclosures says nearly $5 million has been spent in fees and expenses.

The report, filed by special master Merrill Sherman, covers the period since she was appointed in January 2012 to Oct. 15. It says 744 active foreclosure cases are pending in court.

The Providence Journal reports that lawyers for a group of lenders objected last week to the latest bills for the mediation program. The lawyers also objected to the fact that the court has set no time or monetary limits on the mediation process.

In an Oct. 28 court filing, the four lawyers objected to Sherman’s request for payment of $63,421 in expenses for September.

The four lawyers represent a group of lenders and loan servicers.
