If your house was foreclosed on in 2009 or 2010, you can ask for a free review and receive compensation if there were any errors made:
The bottom line is there is a website you can visit to see your options. Try to ignore the fact that the website looks pretty cheesy — it is legit. Unfortunately, it was the banks who were found to be making (lots of) mistakes on people’s foreclosures who were required to set up the website, so they are doing as minimal a job they can get away with helping you.
In fact, the government had to extend the time for people to ask for a review, since the banks didn’t do a very good job of contacting people who were eligible.
