The Michigan attorney general’s office has subpoenaed three mortgage processors as part of a state investigation of “robo-signing.”
Attorney General Bill Schuette said his office serviced Lender Processing, Fidelity National Financial Inc. and CT Corporation System with investigative subpoenas as affiliates of DocX, a mortgage service support provider. Schuette said he is seeking information about documents signed by DocX employees as “Linda Green.”
The subpoenas are part of a criminal investigation into questionable mortgage documentation filed with Michigan Register of Deeds offices, Schuette said in a statement. The subpoenas were approved June 13 by the state court in Lansing and require responses by June 30, Schuette said.
“Allegations of forged mortgage documents are very serious and require a thorough investigation,” Schuette said. “I will continue to work closely with federal and local authorities to find answers on behalf of Michigan homeowners.”
Schuette said he started the investigation in April after county officials across Michigan said they suspected assignment of mortgage documents filed in their offices may have been forged.
