New York also did not sign on to the deal, according to sources in Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office. Schneiderman had said he would not sign, but reports earlier in the week suggested he was reconsidering, given his new roll as co-chair of a Justice Department task force to investigate mortgage-related abuses.
Attorneys general from Delaware and Nevada also have reportedly not agreed to the deal. Despite the Feb. 6 deadline, states can still sign on and the expectation is that more will.
So-called robo-signing, where thousands of foreclosure documents are signed by one employee without proper verification, came to light in the fall of 2010. Miller formed the coalition of attorneys general to investigate major bank servicers in October 2010. Allegations of forgery and abuse in the documentation process ground foreclosures nearly to a halt for much of 2011, as servicers reviewed and changed the way they process foreclosure documents. They are just now ramping up again in states where foreclosures are not required to go before a judge, or non-judicial states. In judicial states, foreclosures can now take up to three years.
Miller’s office would give no details as to the agreement, or the states that committed to it.
