The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency announced on Wednesday that it has terminated the mortgage servicing-related consent order against Wells Fargo. At the same time, the OCC issued a civil money penalty of 70 million dollars to the bank for previous violations of the order.

 

The consent order against Wells Fargo was terminated by the OCC after it was determined that the bank is now in compliance with the order. Wells Fargo was one of 12 mortgage servicers penalized by the OCC and the Office of Thrift Supervision in April 2011 for deficient mortgage servicing and foreclosure practices.
