Morgan Stanley Says It Will Reimburse Customers Who Were Victims Of Improper Foreclosure

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Reserve says Morgan Stanley will review foreclosures carried out by its old mortgage subsidiary and reimburse any homeowners who were improperly forced out of their homes.

The Fed says it has settled with Morgan Stanley to "address a pattern of misconduct and negligence" at its former mortgage-loan unit, Saxon Mortgage Services Inc.

Morgan Stanley officials declined to comment on the settlement Monday.

Morgan Stanley sold a substantial portion of its holdings of Saxon to Ocwen Financial Corp., and it has closed other parts of its residential mortgage servicing business.

Before the sale, Saxon was the 34th largest mortgage servicer in the United States.
