Liberty One Lending - Agency, FHA/VA - Retail & Net Branch

2009-01-05

Comment on this article | Subscribe by email!

We had been alerted of a possible bankruptcy since early December. Today Liberty One Lending announced it was ceasing all operations. There has been no bankruptcy filing as yet per public records. From the email put out by CEO Matthew D. Goddard:

"Effective immediately, Liberty One is ceasing all operations. You will be allowed to close out any loans that you may be actively working on until January 31st."

The office phones are no longer working, and the web site has already been taken down (view cached). The cell phone for Goddard appears to be disconnected.

Liberty One Lending was based in Goodyear, AZ and was licensed to do business in all 50 states. A branch manager we spoke with indicated there were as many as 1,300 Loan Officers operating from net branches in 37 states at one point. Volume info was not readily available.

Details are still forthcoming, so stay tuned as we will continue to update this listing. Contact us if you can help fill in the blanks.

The company hasn't paid any loan officers for December fundings from what I'm hearing. Why would anyone go forward with their loans with them?

I would check with your title company and see what they suggest. Maybe they can hold the funds until someone arranges a legal solution??? Permalink

If you have a loan and it is about to fund, see if you can submit a demand for what you are due. This should at least slow things down, if you are lucky they won't send the check. Also, the Liberty One checking account with M & I Marshall is basically empty. If your loan funds and the funds are sent to Liberty One then chances are you he will run off with it also. Permalink

Like everyone else, I haven't been paid either. In fact, I was personally told that I could pick up my check. I sent a courier 3 times and the HE was a no show at the office. When the courier asked for names he was given bogus names. I wouldn't fund anything if you expect to get paid from it. Permalink

Important: This company is on our list of lending operations that have "imploded". However, please note that "imploded" is a somewhat subjective and does not necessarily mean operations are ceased permanently: it can mean bankruptcy filing, temporary but open-ended halting of major operations, or "firesale" acquisition. All information here is provisional, and may contain inaccuracies (especially newer information). If you are planning on doing business with this company or any other one listed on this site, you should inquire with them directly on whether they can still meet your needs. Many are still operating in some capacity.
