Additional Notes

Complaint: Sovereign Lending contacted me about refinancing my home. During our conversation I stressed that I have been through this process many times and my home does not appraise enough to refinance. I did not want to proceed. I was promised over and over by Arjun D. *****, Mortgage Banker, that if the loan would not go through, I would get a full refund for my expenses. There seemed to be no doubt that he will be able to get me the loan. I have many emails and a voice mail from Mr. ***** promising me the refund, so I proceeded with the paperwork. My expenses include a $500 cash advance to my credit card, a $25 fee for the cash advance, 24% interest on that cash advance and a $20 fee from Sovereign Bank for a faxed payoff statement. I have all documentation of expenses. With no surprise to me, my home did not appraise enough to refinance as Mr. ***** had expected. I have contacted Mr. ***** numerous times over the past three weeks to give me confirmation on the refund. He has communicated back, but has yet to confirm a date of the refund. I appreciate everything Mr. ***** tried to do, but I informed him at the beginning of the issues I've had before. All I am asking is for the refund that I was promised all along.

Desired Settlement: I want to be reimbursed for my expenses as promised in emails and verbally in a voice mail.

Consumer Response: I have discussed my situation with a representative of Sovereign Lending & have come to an agreement that is greatly appreciated. I am considering this claim resolved to my satisfaction. Regards, ******** *****

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
