I-Team: Nevada Homeowners File Class Action Lawsuit After Foreclosures

LAS VEGAS -- More than 20,000 Nevadans were foreclosed on by companies that are accused of doing business illegally in the state. That's according to a new class action lawsuit filed in Las Vegas.

The class action lawsuit is against five companies hired by banks to collect debts and begin the eviction process. This lawsuit is one of the first of it's kind in the country.

The suit alleges a number of foreclosure servicing firms failed to register as out of state collection agencies with the Nevada Financial Institutions Division. The suit was started by 16 Nevada homeowners who recently had their homes foreclosed.

"These companies not being licensed and didn't have the ability to legally do the things that they did. Send notices out, foreclose on them, get them out of the house, move for eviction," attorney Shawn Christopher said.

The lawsuit targets: Quality Loan Service, MTC Financial, Meridian Trust Deed Service, National Default Servicing and California Reconveyance company. Only one of those companies, Quality Loan Service, returned 8 News NOW's phone call Monday. They said they do not comment on pending litigation.
