You can back out of a mortgage with a simple letter?

| Jan 13, 2015 | Firm News

The United States Supreme Court recently decided that a mortgage can be rescinded under the federal Truth in Lending Act (TILA) by simply writing a letter.

The Court held that a lawsuit is not necessary to back out of a mortgage under TILA, contrary to what the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held. Of course, borrowers who have TILA claims may want to bring a legal proceeding in court to avail themselves of other rights they may have under TILA. But the Court held that a lawsuit is not required.
