CFPB: Top 6 mortgage complaints from consumers

Along with the most-complained-about mortgage companies

Mortgages may no longer be in the top spot for consumer complaints but that doesn’t mean they are anywhere close to out of the mix.

According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s latest monthly complaint report, the CFPB has handled approximately 223,100 mortgage complaints since July 21, 2011, making mortgage the second most-complained-about product after debt collection, representing 26% of total complaints.

The CFPB’s Monthly Complaint Report uses a three-month rolling average, comparing the current average to the same period in the prior year where appropriate, to account for monthly and seasonal fluctuations.

This month’s report spotlights mortgages and includes various charts that break down the numbers.

These first two charts show mortgage complaint types.
